Conducting Beethoven: Volume 2: Overtures, Concertos, Missa Solemnis
Part of the Conducting Beethoven series
Following on from his reflections on conducting the nine Beethoven symphonies, Del Mar now gives his views on the remainder of Beethoven's orchestral output.
He offers analyses of the music's structure, pointing out key events in the score, and gives advice on how to achieve the desired effect.
Drawing on a lifetime's experience of conducting, these reflections are an essential starting-point for young conducters.
