THE CONDUCTOR ENCOURAGES AND ENABLES
music to be decoded from ink on a page to a powerful
and profound communicative force, creating a series
of magical moments, unique and ephemeral, yet
intrinsic to the whole.
The conductor tempers, refines, and unifies all the
orchestra gives him to realize the composer's intent.
He hears the pinnacle of their music making; then
he asks for more.
The conductor is the steward of music. He presides
over the final stage, indeed the only stage, of music
making - the communion of ear and object, the birth
of intent into reality.
