The Art Of The Conductor

The Art Of The Conductor

"John Watkins has used his years of experience on both sides of the baton to create a charming introduction to the art of conducting. There are not many reference books that deal with the 'how to' of directing a group of musicians. This practical guide to conducting wisely stays away from musical theory and concentrates on how to communicate with musicians from base amateur to seasoned professional This is a must for a newly aspiring conductor, and an experienced conductor could very well use this as a refresher." -John Tozer, music director, Scarborough, Ontario An invaluable reference guide for musicians of all types, The Art of the Conductor contains clear and detailed descriptions of universally accepted techniques used by the world's best and most successful music conductors. Classically trained musician and conductor John J. Watkins discusses the evolution of conducting technique and how it relates to various forms of music, and he outlines the wide array of skills conductors need today. He also explains the finer points of technique and control, including beat patterns and signals, tempo changes, and using the left hand, to make the conducting experience as rewarding as possible. The Art of the Conductor will help conductors, choristers, and instrumentalists build their skills and confidence for more relaxed, enjoyable, and polished performances that audiences will love.

The Silent Musician

The Silent Musician

The conductor—tuxedoed, imposingly poised above an orchestra, baton waving dramatically—is a familiar figure even for those who never set foot in an orchestral hall. As a veritable icon for classical music, the conductor has also been subjected to some ungenerous caricatures, presented variously as unhinged gesticulator, indulged megalomaniac, or even outright impostor. Consider, for example: Bugs Bunny as Leopold Stokowski, dramatically smashing his baton and then breaking into erratic poses with a forbidding intensity in his eyes, or Mickey Mouse in Fantasia, unwittingly conjuring dangerous magic with carefree gestures he doesn’t understand. As these clichés betray, there is an aura of mystery around what a conductor actually does, often coupled with disbelief that he or she really makes a difference to the performance we hear. The Silent Musician deepens our understanding of what conductors do and why they matter. Neither an instruction manual for conductors, nor a history of conducting, the book instead explores the role of the conductor in noiselessly shaping the music that we hear. Writing in a clever, insightful, and often evocative style, world-renowned conductor Mark Wigglesworth deftly explores the philosophical underpinnings of conducting—from the conductor’s relationship with musicians and the music, to the public and personal responsibilities conductors face—and examines the subtler components of their silent art, which include precision, charisma, diplomacy, and passion. Ultimately, Wigglesworth shows how conductors—by simultaneously keeping time and allowing time to expand—manage to shape ensemble music into an immersive, transformative experience, without ever making a sound.

Maestros And Their Music

Maestros And Their Music

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.
