Playing with the Conductor

Conducting student before his exam: "An orchestra admires a conductor who knows his own mind and isn't afraid to speak it." Regarding professional musicians.... "What they think doesn't matter, they are merely the guinea pigs for MY interpretation."

Tune in at the 5-minute point.

Principal Horn: "I'm SO sorry, sir. Made a domino there, I'm afraid. I'm terribly sorry."

Conductor: "Disgraceful, disgraceful incompetence. Do it again."

Principal Horn: "I'm sorry sir, bit of trouble with our lip."

Conductor: "Don't give me any of your lip!"

Hattip to Bruce of Horn Matters for bringing this gem to my attention.
