It makes such a difference when a conductor trusts the orchestra.  And in turn, it is easier to trust the conductor.  It makes such a difference when we have the liberty to play chamber music together, to make mistakes without inciting a scowl or causing the energy to retract.  And there are fewer mistakes in such a concert.  Mistakes cease to be mistakes when they do actually happen.  I wonder what it takes to create that trust.  It's such a powerful thing, capable of melting fear.  And how does it begin?  How can we help it start in all areas of life?  What's happening when it isn't there?  And how can we get it going?
