Know the orchestral repertoire quite well. Most keen on Mengelberg, Furtwangler, Kleiber, and Bernstein recordings. Attended so many concerts when I studied, that I find myself quite picky now. YouTube is the best thing that's come along in a while. Big fan of Cabrillo Festival of new music every summer in Santa Cruz.
Pursued the path of orchestral conductor in my 20's. Now a journalist for work and pianist for fun.
