Interesting discovery today. Ligetisplit, a Chicago based blogger (I think the whole question of annonymous blogging, especially in the music world, might merit a post in the near future).
He’s started uploading clips of various conductors to YouTube with his comments on their work. Some interesting choices, including Toscanini and Bernstein, as well as Charles Latshaw, who was a student at the RCICW last week. I’m sure Charles will be more than psyched to know he’s entered the pantheon! We expect to see our students surpass us, but not after just a few days….
In any case, and interesting example of what the YouTube technology can enable, and the power of the internet to democratize communication.
