Fantastic. I bet it helps that these kids are not ashamed to dance while playing. I have always felt, when it comes to classical musicians who lack "rhythmic authority," or the ability to groove, that somewhere along the way they have been taught to disengage music-making from actually moving their bodies in rhythm.

Oh, that was good! I got goosebumps listening to those first few horn stabs.

large scale rhythmic authority? Brasillian drumming for the carnival of course. Tens of thousands of thousands of people marching on pulsating rhythm.

It occurs to me that when Max did the the double quartet thing, he taught the classical string players the correct feel by singing them their parts. Obviously it would be tougher to pull that off with a whole orchestra, but I wonder if it isn't possible.
