The Dancing Conductor outshoots Abbado on youtube

Legal protests from a German copyright owner caused the stunning Vienna performance of Candide to be taken down for a while on Youtube. It’s back now. Add the previous hits to the present total and you find that more than 150,000 people have watched Joseph R Olefirowicz play to camera as no conductor since Karajan has done (and much more entertainingly).

Joseph’s Youtube hit has received about six times as many visitors as the cream of Claudio Abbado. Go figure.
