Présentation de l'éditeur

This book starts at the very beginning and ends with some remarkably profound insights on conductorial subtleties. An experienced conductor is one in whom detection, diagnosis, and remedy take place simultaneously; as he hears the error, he realizes where the fault lies and what to do about it. This book gives valuable hints about these three basic conductorial functions from the viewpoint of chorus and orchestra alike. McElheran leads the student toward mastery of the problems at hand, with firmness and gentle humour.

Biographie de l'auteur

Brock McElheran was a conductor and professor at the Crane School of Music at Potsdam, the State University of New York. During his active career he prepared choruses for many of the world's leading conductors, including Eugene Ormandy, Robert Shaw and Zubin Mehta.

HASH(0x95afb6a8) étoiles sur 5 The best, most concise book of its kind 1 mars 2000
Par R. Wilson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have been conducting orchestras professionally for almost 20 years, and I must say that this wonderful book is the clearest, most concise, and most useful conducting book available. In addition to a no-nonsense presentation of basic beat patterns, it contains virtually every technical problem a young conductor is likely to encounter, with logical and intelligent solutions to those problems.
You will refer to this book, as I do, for the rest of your musical life!

HASH(0x95afbab0) étoiles sur 5 Clear diagrams; easy to read 26 juin 2004
Par Tobin Sparfeld - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book has become a common introductory text for undergraduate level conducting gesture in the United States. In this respect, the book is extremely effective.
McElheran's treatise is laid out in ultra-clear chapters, all of which are concise and contain possible "Assignments." Not to get too bogged down in the mire of conducting gesture, McElheran's first chapter is on Inspiration. In short, "make the performers want to do their best," he says.
The next few chapters cover aspects such as the baton, beat patterns, the left hand, dynamics and other aspects of music, cues, off-beat accents, fermatas, and some aspects about rehearsals and performance. There are more chapters but you get the picture. All are good.
Some readers may wonder if this is meant for "orchestral" or "choral" conducting. McElheran states clearly that there is (or should be) little difference and that choral conductors should develop an orchestral technique. While I would say that good choral and orchestral conducing are about 95 % similar (perhaps even more so), choral conductors should be aware that there are some differences, especially in ideas of always "hitting the imaginary table" or conducting every single beat. Nonetheless, Conducting Technique can be very helpful for the beginning choral conductor.
Moreover, McElheran's writing style is very fresh and full of self-effacing wit. Reading the book gives one the impression that Brock McElheran is the type of person who takes the art of music seriously but not himself seriously. I think any beginner of conducting should consult this book, and even professionals might want to have it around just as a reference.

HASH(0x95afbb28) étoiles sur 5 Excellent general conducting book 22 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I bought this book originally because it was offered by a handbell music/supply company. Since then it has been recommended to me by just about all the conductors I have worked with. It has the basics but also has details that even a pro can go back to again and again. Its format is very compressed and the presentation is entertaining and straightforward.

HASH(0x95afbabc) étoiles sur 5 Utterly Brilliant! 7 juillet 2002
Par Manasi Vydyanath - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is the best book for technique I've come across, period. The style is not unnecessarily abtruse and the clarity of the book in explanation is magnificent. What appealed to me is the fact that logical, scientific explanations are given for most of the technique encompassed, and the author does not take refuge in 'tradition'. It is as suited to the absolute beginner as it is to the professional looking to polish his/her tehnique.

HASH(0x95afbff0) étoiles sur 5 Practical, challenging, and a great comfort 10 avril 2002
Par Kytaline - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I bought this book shortly after I'd agreed to conduct an adult community choir, and studied it with fearful concentration through the first tentative weeks while the choir and I developed some trust in each other's good will and ignorance. I'm still a novice conductor, but I've now stood in front of some big groups of singers, experienced and beginners, and I trust this book. Even when it's not hidden in the music in front of me.
There's room for argument with some of what McElheran says, and I haven't yet seen a choral conductor who works as he recommends, but the book is clear, sensible, brief, and practical, What's more, it's in better shape than most of my music, although it's travelled further and lived rougher.
I've found the exercises very useful, especially those with "a group of friends". I tried these with my novice choir, in a spirit of "let's explore", and we all learnt from them.
Warmly recommended for anyone interested in conducting, even those who are not about to try their hand, with or without baton, at it.
