It is the mark of a superior conductor that he or she has the authority to insist, even with a top orchestra, that rehearsal work must be intensified. This authority cannot simply be claimed, the conductor must earn it by winning the orchestra’s respect for the artistic interpretations he or she is currently pursuing.

In taking the position outlined, the author presupposes which one of the following?

(A) Superior conductors devise different interpretations of composition for each orchestra with which they perform it.
(B) Superior conductors are perfectionists who are never satisfied with any performance even by a top orchestra.
(C) Top orchestras are always ready to put in additional work on rehearsals if the conductor considers additional rehearsing necessary.
(D) Top orchestras can appreciate the merits of an interpretation even before they have brought it to full realization.
(E) Even top orchestras are not always led by superior conductors.

Premise : It is the mark of a superior conductor that he or she has the authority to insist, even with a top orchestra, that rehearsal work must be intensified.

Conclusion : This authority cannot simply be claimed,the conductor must earn it by winning the orchestra’s respect for the artistic interpretations(AI) he or she is currently pursuing.

Assumption : When the conductor has artistic interpretations the orchestra team likes that and in this way he earns respect and this is the only way...

(A) Superior conductors devise different interpretations of composition for each orchestra with which they perform it. =>There is no discussion of implementation of different compositions.

(B) Superior conductors are perfectionists who are never satisfied with any performance even by a top orchestra. => No discussion about satisfaction.

(C) Top orchestras are always ready to put in additional work on rehearsals if the conductor considers additional rehearsing necessary. => Irrelevant as readiness is not part of the argument.

(D) Top orchestras can appreciate the merits of an interpretation even before they have brought it to full realization. => This is as per our pre-thinking that when conductor shows up AI then Orchestras CAN appreciate and that way he can earn the respect. If they won't appreciate the AI then the conclusion is weakened.

(E) Even top orchestras are not always led by superior conductors => Leading always is not part of discussion...out of scope

IMO D is fine..

I too think D is correct.
Top orchestras can appreciate the merits of an interpretation even before they have brought it to full realization.

Negate this and the conclusion will fall apart.

i.e Top orchestras cannot appreciate the merits of an interpretation before it( interpretation) has been brought to full realization.

In that case that the orchestra wont give respect to the conductor before the work interpretation is done and hence the conclusion breaks apart.

Correct me if I am wrong.
