The Richard Strauss pieces were wonderful!
I noted, however, that the third trombonist semed especially bored, having very few notes to play. He spent most of the time with both his arms and his legs crossed! Rather than intently following the conductor and being immersed in the music, he was just sitting idly by until his few bars came up. Not an especially participative mode of being present to clock in for his $100K+/year salary. What if the paying audience just sat around looking bored until, finally, the third trombonist got his few notes in? Don't these players get that their every move on stage is being scrutinized by the audience? And what about the guest conductor? Doesn't he care what kind of attentiveness to the music he is eliciting from everyone on stage?
