Genius on Fire
Andris Nelsons is either silently anchored to his chair, deeply reflective and monosyllabic or he's pouring every ounce of energy into his surroundings. It is either/or and there is nothing in-between. There is no 'normal,' and whatever normal may mean, it doesn't happen in his life. In fact, it never did. From his childhood Nelsons was exceptional and still is exceptional. He's an exceptionally talented musician who now lives an extremely unusual life conducting the world's greatest orchestras.
