(First, sorry if this is in the wrong category. I couldn't find a category for orchestral questions.)
I've been watching some videos of Riccardo Muti's conducting (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eTlaE5y9hk), and was wondering how people interpret his constant stick waving. I have had some "hyper-stick" conductors (although not as fast as him). Is he subdividing? If so, why is he the only one that constantly subdivides, and I'm guessing that the stick is moving too fast for one to count with his subdivisions anyway. Thoughts?
