During the 19th century the emergence of the role of conductor transformed both the performance and the reception of orchestral music. Palmer profiles eight conductors, including Julius Benedict, Arthur Sullivan and Landon Ronald, who were associated with orchestras and musical societies in major British cities. She sheds light on the profession’s evolution, the infrastructures of the Victorian music business and the contribution of such musicians to the nation’s cultural life.
