All of this happens with a dancer's body tension. You think you can literally see the energy floating between her and the musicians…
In the end, Oksana Lyniv was the loudly acclaimed conductor. In this one evening she had brought all, really all, facets of Bártók over the ramp! Clear, meticulous are her gestures. Sense for slim dramaturgy, for an extraordinary tonal range from soft to hard, from gentle to razor-sharp. The Bavarian State Orchestra read all the wishes from her eyes of the great expert at the conductor's desk. The sound pattern: from delicate to extremely compact. Still not for a moment overdriven or even noisy! Trumpet and trombone choir, the flute’s and bassoon’s solos: others won’t be able to imitate that soon!
One of the God's greatest gifts to people is the gift of choice. And it is this question of choice that is relevant to me every day. Every evening I ask myself what I lived today for? The most important thing for me is to be a co-creator of my life, the life of our (and my) country and so that of our entire civilization.
