Radetzky March, Op. 228 is a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. in 1848. It was dedicated to the Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, and became quite a popular march among soldiers. When it was first played, in front of Austrian officers in attendance, they promptly clapped and stomped their feet when they heard the chorus. This tradition is carried over today when the march is played in classical music venues in Vienna, among members of the audience who are familiar with the tradition. It is almost always played as the last piece of music at the Neujahrskonzert, the Vienna New Year Concert. [wikipedia]

When the East meets West - The China Central Chinese Orchestra, Conductor: Chen Xie Yang, seems to me most of the conductors do have a hilarious look, full of action and expression especially for this particular piece of classical music. Thanks Nicky Beh for sharing in Facebook.

All the while I thought music Conductors are the serious kind of person with all those frowning and scowling appearance, oops guess I was very wrong..

The Conductor, Daniel Barenboim is kinda cute. He was born in Buenos Aires in 1942 to parents of Jewish Russian descent. At a tender age of five he started piano lessons with his mother, together with his father as his only other teacher. In August 1950, he gave his first official concert in Buenos Aires when he was seven years old.
