Serendipity! It's blindingly true that composing happens just beneath
the scalp. I'd apply this shining appercu differently from James Kearney,
though. Match the composer's hair style with conductor's hair style, I
say;it's the organic way of achieving music with organic integrity. Eg,
I'd match up Celibidache's mane with Liszt's mane--and that way you'd be
sure to get genuine Celibidache doing non-imitation Liszt. Got it?
