Inside conducting by Christopher Seaman( Book )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does a conductor actually do? How much effect does he or she have? Can the orchestra manage without one? Why don't the players look at the conductor more? Is it necessary for the conductor to play every instrument? What about interpretation? What happens at rehearsals? Why do some conductors "thrash around" more than others? Who's the boss in a concerto: the soloist or the conductor? These are some of the questions that receive lively and informative answers in this book by renowned conductor Christopher Seaman. Composed of short articles on individual topics, it is easy to consult and accessible. Each article begins with an anecdote or saying and ends with quotes from musicians, often expressing opposing views. There are many books on the art of conducting but none like this. Music lovers wondering what the figure on the podium actually does, and aspiring conductors eager to learn more about the art and craft of leading an orchestra, will all treasure this wise yet humorous book
