On Becoming a Conductor Book Description :

(Meredith Music Resource). This incredible book by one of the world's foremost authorities on conducting contains no conducting patterns, and no advice on how to conduct any piece. Instead, it focuses on the skills, knowledge and experiences needed to become and function as a conductor-teacher. "This text is a 'must have' for all serious musicians. It captures the legacy and wisdom of one of the most important conductors of our time. This is what can happen when a focused and inquisitive mind meets up with a uniquely creative imagination." Eugene Migliaro Corporon, Director of Wind Studies, College of Music University of North Texas (a href="http://youtu.be/JM6g4KBA4Fk" target="_blank")Click here for a YouTube video on On Becoming a Conductor(/a)

  • Pages : 272
  • ISBN 10 : 9781101973608


Maestros and Their Music Book Description :

An exuberant, uniquely accessible, beautifully illustrated look inside the enigmatic art and craft of conducting, from a celebrated conductor whose international career has spanned half a century. John Mauceri brings a lifetime of experience to bear in an unprecedented, hugely informative, consistently entertaining exploration of his profession, rich with anecdotes from decades of working alongside the greatest names of the music world. With candor and humor, Mauceri makes clear that conducting is itself a composition: of legacy and tradition, techniques handed down from master to apprentice--and more than a trace of ineffable magic. He reveals how conductors approach a piece of music (a calculated combination of personal interpretation, imagination, and insight into the composer's intent); what it takes to communicate solely through gesture, with sometimes hundreds of performers at once; and the occasionally glamorous, often challenging life of the itinerant maestro. Mauceri, who worked closely with Leonard Bernstein for eighteen years, studied with Leopold Stokowski, and was on the faculty of Yale University for fifteen years, is the perfect guide to the allure and theater, passion and drudgery, rivalries and relationships of the conducting life.

Toscanini and the Art of Conducting Book Description :

There have been many studies of Toscanini, the man. This book turns to the central questions of Toscanini as a musician and special character of the Toscanini performance. Writing lucidly and knowledgeably, the distinguished music critic of the Chicago Sun-Times defines those powers of mind and musicianship which set Toscanini apart from other conductors of our time and which, for millions of listeners, gave his interpretations the quality of revelation. Mr Marsh surveys the recordings that preserve Toscanini's achievement, with critiques of their significance, along with a chronological list of those still available. A brief sketch of his life rounds out this comprehensive picture of the Maestro who is idolized, quarrelled over, but generally acknowledged to be one of the most illustrious and widely influential conductors in history. -- Publisher description.
