This is exactly how I felt in every single conducting class I ever took. Amazing. Love this comic.
I would totally play this. Was the song Ruslan and Ludmila? I’ve only played a wind ensemble version, but it was gorgeous.
Good eye! Yes, the song is Ruslan and Ludmila overture. It would be really interesting with the next generation of game consoles, since they have improved the motion capture peripherals like the Xbox Kinect, if someone would try and make a conducting game like this. At the very least, it would be a fun distraction from practicing.
