Thank you to everyone who has reached out to Maestro Zander this week as he recovers from his fall. He is not able to respond individually to all the messages he has received, but he is enjoying reading them and appreciates your good wishes. He is making encouraging progress, but he still has a long journey ahead of him, so please continue to reach out to him. 

From our Interpretation Class archives, we bring you a video of Maestro Zander working with Elmer Churampi on the trumpet solo from the opening of Mahler's Fifth Symphony. Maestro Zander asks, "Can you get the feeling you're not playing the trumpet, but you're speaking for all of humanity?...In the end, it's not about the instrument."


We also bring you a recording of Richard Strauss's tone poem Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche, performed by the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in 2018.
