The video (3 parts) shows a dialogue between Konrad von Abel and the Danish bassoonist Peter Bastian (1943 –2017). Both were students of Celibidache during the legendary days of his classes in Mainz more than 25 years ago. We (mph) arranged a reunion for them after such a long time and this is the result! It’s the actual length because we want to avoid putting in stone a series of statements that deliver a clarity that is impossible to live. This is why it’s about 1 1/2 hours long.
