A chilling example of what can happen when a conductor loses control of his orchestra.

Isn't this the 1812 overture? (not the 1712 overture)

One must use all of one's powers, including reason.  Note, please, that none of the many Bachs could claim to have written the more famous '1812 Overture', being dead at the time.  However, some musicologists are proposing that the "later" work drew heavily from the century-"earlier" work.  At least two of those musicologists can be identified in the video by the unusual hairstyles they are wearing in tribute to Bach's son, Bach.

The soccer referee does seem to be a later, capricious, addition.  Too bad he isn't effective as the organ solo goes on far too long.

Google is your friend.

 

Actually, you put me in mind of another Bach production where a real football referee was employed.

Check the instant replay.

That's not a football ref, I didn't see him flash a single penalty card.

There are some amazing similarities in the music.

Tchaikovsky's (plagerized?) version uses cannon!  You see any cannon on stage?

WoW!  Never heard of her, but what a wonderful touch she has, and apparently a warm relationship with her orchestra.  I'll be keeping an ear out.
