[audience applauding] ♫ ♫ ♫ [slow orchestral music] - One of the most beautiful things for conducting for me is that it's not only one person giving a command and everybody's following like a machine but how to use all these intellegences and all this potential which is sitting there. We're somehow here to help them to play better. - [Jesse] The four of us are definitely a family. We have a great time together. - We're all really big fans of each other and we like to boost each other up. - We spend a lot of time together and so it's a very interesting process because we all have very different backgrounds and very different personalities. But I feel very fortunate that I have them as colleagues because they're all brilliant. - Sometimes you see things and you think I don't wanna do it that way but I respect why they do that. And I think that's really what it is about being good colleagues is helping each other to find the best version of themselves. - Conducting program here is not about learning how to give an upbeat. That's one part too but it's seeing the rehearsals at New York Philharmonic, seeing rehearsals here at Juilliard. - [Jane] I think one of the best things about coming to Juilliard has been the level of access that we have to such high quality classical music. - And to do it in New York City which is a cultural capital of the world. You just have the possibility to kind of evolve. - [Jane] It's great working with Alan Gilbert. He makes time for us. We have at least two lessons a week when he's here which is amazing given how busy he is. - We are so fortunate to work with a musician of his caliber and with a human being of his caliber. - [Jesse] To be able to work with someone who's at the top of their profession like he is and at the same time willing to work with young musicians like ourselves who are basically beginning the lifelong process of becoming a conductor. That's really special. - [Jane] He's so detailed in his advice in his lessons and what we can do physically and then we also get into philosophical discussions about what music is and what it means to be a conductor. - Every lesson we have with him I feel like I'm delving in to some new aspect of music-making and classical music that I hadn't thought about before. - And that's the weird thing of conducting because you have to lead but sometimes when it works the best no one feels that they're being led. - [Benjamin] The main part of the program is that every Friday we conduct a lab orchestra which is comprised of the musicians of The Juilliard School. - [Gregor] I don't know whether there's any other place in the world where you have this rare opportunity. Not only an orchestra every week which already is incredible but have an orchestra of this level every week. - [Jesse] That we're working with this very dedicated and very generous group of musicians who like us are learning their craft and excited about music-making. - In this setting instead of the main focus being on the orchestra and what we need to fix the focus is on the student conductor and how they can achieve what they want from us. All of us are learning together. - I'm very happy that there's not this far distance of here's the conductor and there's the orchestra. I feel really on a completely equal level. - Each day the musicians each had a sheet of paper and pencils on their stands. We asked them to provide feedback and critique. - It's very helpful and important for us to know what the players think. This is kind of still another teacher what we have is the orchestra itself. - Well for musicians it gives us sort of a unique opportunity to get inside the head of a conductor. - [Jane] They're always interested in how we're doing and how we're conducting. - [Benjamin] We first had a session on the Haydn and Mozart back in September the very beginning of the semester. And then we circled back to this repertoire around the middle of November and then zoomed in and focused very intensely. - [Jane] We actually had four full rehearsals that we led the orchestra. And so we really gained insight into how we each saw the different movements that we were doing. - [Jesse] The rehearsal process is so critical you know you approach it very rigorously and logically like you know okay we have to get this softer here or this you know in the right tempo and everyone together. But then right before you go out on stage you know it's about telling a story with the music. - [Jane] Before a concert I found that I like to do some jumping jacks, make sure that my arms and my body are not going from being completely still to having to conduct. - [Gregor] A lot of the parts of the piece swirl through your head and on the other side you try to bring yourself down to connect with the earth, connect with your body, connect with people then in the moment when you get on to the stage. - [Benjamin] So I just try to get in that place where I can really make music with people. [orchestra playing] - [Gregor] It's absolutely a fulfilling moment. You're so happy that it's over. But on the other hand, it's almost sad that it's over. The best thing is when you're living through this beautiful musical moment. - [Benjamin] For me especially at the point in time that I've come to this program it's completely transformative. It is kind of a life-changing experience. I have to say. [triumphant orchestral music]
