Finney goes wild for Oliver Knussen

My father likes to call his time asleep at the orchestra his “beauty sleep.” It’s true: sometimes the gentle soothing chords of the orchestra, the serious yet non-threatening manner of musicians and maestros alike, the calm, steady coughs and concentration of the audience add up to quite a nice doze, complete with sweet dreams and the occasional musical wandering.
