One of these days I’ll have to learn how to pronounce Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s name; I think the diacritical marks over the e’s throw me off because they look like accents.

Anyway, this afternoon Nézet-Séguin conducted a magnificent performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. Who knew an hour could fly by so quickly?

I was especially impressed by the way he kept the music moving without seeming rushed. 

Even more freude greeted me when I got home, as my iPhone 5s had arrived.
