Conducting for a New Era
In this guide for conductors faced with modern music’s rhythmic complexity, Edwin Roxburgh combines insights from his own experience of conducting premières with the views of other performers and composers. After giving advice on basic principles of technique he presents case studies showing how to deal with such challenges as irregular pulses, aleatoric scores and live electronics. The accompanying DVD illustrates his approach and features performance demonstrations of Boulez’s Le Marteau sans maître. Foreword by Sir Andrew Davis.
