I watched the following two videos and it gave me the distinct idea that the conductor played something of his own choosing. Does this happen or am I getting my wires crossed?



  • Can anyone maybe tell me how to get those youtube videos embedded?

Sure, there are times when the conductor will go ahead and be the soloist. It's not that uncommon especially when the orchestra is relatively small.
