So ever since I searched for “Mahler Hammer” for a blog in, like, July (this one), I get Mahler-related recommendations on YouTube every once and a while. And every once and a while, I watch them.
Today I watched this one:
Okay, two things:
1. What a freaking beautiful performance of a beautiful piece of music
2. I absolutely love musicians and conductors who get the hell into it. This conductor (Christian Vasquez) is so enthusiastic and so into it and it just makes it all so much better slfjslfghalfhakghdakfh
I don’t know. It just makes me so happy to see people feel music. It makes me feel the music even more.
ALSO, 2:59 is Frisson Central, holy hell.
Alright, I’m done.
