Description : In this wide-ranging inside view of the history and practice of conducting, analysis and advice comes directly from working conductors, including Sir Charles Mackerras on opera, Bramwell Tovey on being an Artistic Director, Martyn Brabbins on modern music, Leon Botstein on programming and Vance George on choral conducting, and from those who work closely with conductors: a leading violinist describes working as a soloist with Stokowski, Ormandy and Barbirolli, while Solti and Abbado s studio producer explains orchestral recording, and one of the world s most powerful managers tells all. The book includes advice on how to conduct different types of groups (choral, opera, symphony, early music) and provides a substantial history of conducting as a study of national traditions. It is an unusually honest book about a secretive industry and managers, artistic directors, soloists, players and conductors openly discuss their different perspectives for the first time.

Description : Few genres of the last 250 years have proved so crucial to the course of music history, or so vital to public musical experience, as the symphony. This Companion offers an accessible guide to the historical, analytical and interpretative issues surrounding this major genre of Western music, discussing an extensive variety of works from the eighteenth century to the present day. The book complements a detailed review of the symphony's history with focused analytical essays from leading scholars on the symphonic music of both mainstream composers, including Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and lesser-known figures, including Carter, Berio and Maxwell Davies. With chapters on a comprehensive range of topics, from the symphony's origins to the politics of its reception in the twentieth century, this is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the history, analysis and performance of the symphonic repertoire.

Description : This apparently haphazard collection of essays on the interpretation of more unusual concert pieces was chosen partly with a view to more imaginative programme planning, the other requirement being that each piece is by a composer whose output would never make up a whole book. There are manycomposers who wrote one, or two, masterpieces, yet failed to leave a worthy oeuvre; these are often forgotten when building programmes, yet they enhance so many when brought to mind. This compilation spans a little over a hundred years from the 19th and 20th centuries and all are colourful andattractive.Once again Norman Del Mar brings us his expertise in handling the orchestra over a wide variety of styles and complicated instrumentation, his compulsive enthusiasm and broad knowledge being an invaluable guide to both the aspiring conductor, the expert, and the music-loving listener alike. Thetwenty-two essays range from Russia to Spain, from Schonberg to Kodaly, from Wolf to Poulenc, with such firm favourites as La Forza del Destino revealing unexpected tricky moments and the Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia from Peter Grimes full of hints and advice straight from Britten himself,for Norman Del Mar worked for many years with him at Aldeburgh and on tour with the English Opera Group.
