"Conducting can be very physically, mentally, even spiritually demanding. Because I conduct many hours each week, I developed a technique to convey intensity without overtaxing my body. One must be mindful of efficient movement, especially when conducting very long works such as opera, or during weeks with multiple engagements, so as not to foster fatigue. When I began conducting, this did not come naturally to me; experience has taught me — just like an athlete — to make efficient and meaningful use of every movement."
