Finnish composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Dichotomie builds a bridge between the mechanical and organic. The composer says the first movement represents, “a machine that could feel some sort of joie de vivre,” and the second, “a … slender willow that moves gracefully in the wind but returns always to its original shape ...” Also the line spacing on that post is a little wide. It would be good to have a standard design template to refer to for all concerts videos–I think we'll be setting a new standard with these.
