I love conducting --- it just fulfills many things that the piano can't give me. I love all the orchestral colors, and enjoy interacting with and reacting to my fellow musicians. Conducting to me is a more music-engaging activity than playing the piano because it involves much more interaction and communication! I have to give up my ego sometimes; unlike playing the piano, which is most of the time self-centering (I can argue against myself, but to say less here...). Don't take me wrong, I love playing the piano too. They are simply different. Some people say that conducting is just like playing a huge instrument, but it is far more than that.
