I actually really like going to the symphony.  I love playing music and it’s so impressive to see those musicians at the top of their game.  One thing dawned on me, though.  Symphonies are actually just really big cover bands.  The process of songwriting is so ingrained in me that it’s very hard for me to imagine music without it…  I can’t really fathom the ultimate goal being to play someone else’s music.  That’s just super weird to me.  Needless to say, I’ve yet to encounter a conductor like this one.  Sign me up.
