    Thanks for all thèse infos.. it is a mix of discipline, hard work and intelligent discovery that music is a way to acquire the gifts that the heavens propose to the musician or the listener capable of hearing in the midst of a silent capaciousness. I have heard Thr RPO undersubtil but firm baguette of Charles Dutoit un the Stravinsky hall in Montreux and would be interested by the comments from the musician and the conductor about the special clarity of the acoustic of this hall.
