Debussy: L'après-midi d'une faune (Stokowski) part 1/2

This is just unspeakably beautiful. I bet the players loved Stokowski. The freedom he gives to the flautist is amazing. Watch for the interplay between :

sound and silence - ooooohhhhh!
stillness and movement
freedom and structure

Hold your breath, watch closely and listen hard.
