Product Overview

Imogen Holst (1907-1984), the daughter of the composer Gustav Holst, was a much-loved source of inspiration for the many musicians and students who encountered her over the years at the Dartington Summer School of Music and the Aldeburgh Festival. In this book, originally published in 1973, she sets out clearly and concisely--and often amusingly--a wealth of practical information that will be of particular interest to the amateur conductor. She gives precise and detailed advice on the technique of conducting, how to form and train a choir, the presentation and rehearsal of music, and how to approach public performances and competitions. Her final chapter offers suggestions for the actual rehearsal of choruses from Purcells Dido & Aeneas, Handels lAllegro, and Brittens Rejoice in the Lamb. *Author: Holst, Imogen/ Maddison, Lowinger/ Maddison, Lowinger *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 176 *Publication Date: 1990/04/19 *Language: English *Dimensions: 7.46 x 5.70 x 0.47 inches
