There’s something about conducting this kid really gets, although he really should have turned the last page of the score before he thought the piece was over:
Wouldn’t it be nice if more kids this age thought Beethoven was this much fun? And why don’t they, anyway? I wonder what would happen if kids treated Beethoven like dance music? I wonder what would happen if we all thought of Beethoven as being something one could do, rather than something one experienced? Dance, rather than sit quietly?
