Since this subject won't seem to die, I'll toss in my two cents worth.
personal opinions. On other comments:

Leonard Bernstein: While I find (found?) some of his movements to be a bit
they still seem to indicate what he wanted from the players. Nothing he did
seemed overly complicated, given the meaning he was conveying and to whom
he was conveying it, and it was usually entertaining to watch and wonderful

Gustavo Dudamel: I don't care for his conducting. I think he's trying to
LB, but not really suceeding at it.

Arturo Toscanini: Loved his conducting and his interpretation.

Martin Frost: Out of curiosity, I searched for his name with K622 II. He
doesn't move excessively, at least in that, and the performance was

Sabine Meyer: First, I think she's a wonderful clarinetist. I have several

My second impression was that there had been some type of screw-up. She's

the video didn't sync, but none of it in this recording is in sync. Also,
fingering doesn't seem to match.. It looks really strange.
