Musical Interlude

Okay, it's 40 minutes long, so I'd be dreaming if I thought you'd actually watch this. But if you did, you'd see Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade conducted by Valery Gergiev, who puts on quite a show.

One commenter said, "He always looks like he crawled out from some sleazy bar someplace – but my God, he is a conducting genius !!"

I'd say he's sort of a cross between George Carlin and Joe Cocker.

Full screen a must.

How could you NOT watch the whole thing?!? It was absolutely magnificent - transporting, actually. Thank you.
