That is a full score, showing every part of the orchestra. Each player has his or her own part but I have to see everyone's music.
I spend much more time in my study, studying the scores, than I do actually waving my arms around in front of the orchestra! I need to know what is going on when, how fast, how the balance should sound........I could go on but yes, it can be complicated!!
Very lucky to do this for a living!!
PS - here is something that really is complicated (a modern piece of Belgian music I am conducting later this year) next to something very uncomplicated, just to keep it Panerai-centric?!
