Gergiev: The Whole Orchestra

When I found this, I expected it to be simply Gergiev talking about the music of Gustav Mahler. But I got so much more. The first 50 seconds of this video might be one of the funniest things I’ve seen/heard in a while. His verbal recreation of the 6th Symphony is simply brilliant, and at the same time a bit disturbing. Another highlight is Gergiev playing horn, even though I don’t think you play any instrument the way he did. I haven’t heard his version of the 6th, but the little that I did hear I liked.

So much to do, so little reason to do so much of it...
