Spot the conductor with sh*t-eating grin

After months of worry, possible repertoire changes, concern about personnel and budgets, travel problems, back problems, general irritability….. when Ken is flipping through his score 20 minutes before the first rehearsal and gradually, all around him, players are warming up practicing bits of Das Lied von der Erde…. 

PS- I think it will be good. 

PPS- Chris’s piece is very good too, and a great contrast to Mahler….
