About

Hello dear viewers!

Have you ever wondered how Beethoven's 7th symphony ties to catacombs or political revolution? Or how did Dvořák turn a symphonic piece into a political statement against rising racist ideologies? What is the fabric holding together some of the greatest masterpieces in classical music?

I know you've been following me for some time on my YouTube channel (but if you haven't yet, here's your chance to start ;)). Conducting Pills is a series of videos that was born to show a part of what conductors do when they look at a score: how we analyze it, what we look at in terms of structure, orchestration, and, of course, offer some conducting tips based on my personal experience. 

It turned out to be helpful not just to conductors but to all lovers of classical music who want a glimpse - in a very accessible way - into some of the most popular classical pieces, or some that are just waiting to be rediscovered. You will learn about how Brahms constructs his 1st symphony, or how Revueltas draws from Afro-Cuban rhythms in his Sensemayá; the delicate harmonies of Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte and the composing tricks of Rimsky-Korsakov in Scheherazade.
 
Even though I have my fair share of fun in making these videos, the reality is that it does take a lot of time, effort, and equipment to put these videos together: from writing the script to filming to editing. 

And this is where you come into play (no pun intended...): by pledging to Conducting Pills you can help me create more episodes for you and for the viewers to come, and spread the "secrets" behind these masterpieces we all love and cherish. 

I've put together some awesome rewards for you: check them out and become a member of this wonderful community!
