Behold a shortcut! All the well known melodies from Carmen packed into 14 minutes. But forget about Carmen, focus on the dialog between violin and orchestra. It's a delicate and complicated one, no doubt.
Josefowicz can hold both lines, passion and structure. She's gliding but never too much. The dialog is balanced.
