Ching notes about  the Philharmonia Baroque performance
of Handel's "Ode to the Birthday of Queen Anne," and Thomas
>Arne's "Masque of Alfred":

> I attended both Berkeley performances, and on Sunday eve (with McGegan back
>on the podium), it felt like a whole new concert, with everything sounding
>more fresh and sprightly energized. In contrast, Newman's conducting
>seemed even more mechanical, with his arms and wrists prone to lots of
>generic circular motion.
Am I to understand from this that both Newman and McGegan,
rather than leading from the harpsichord, conducted the way
we are used to?
