Présentation de l'éditeur

In The Score, The Orchestra, and the Conductor, internationally-renowned conducting instructor Gustav Meier presents his practical approach to preparing an orchestral score for rehearsal and performance. Well-illustrated with numerous music examples, charts, figures, and tables, Meier's methods, grounded in the rich body of his collected experience as a music director and teacher of conducting students, are explained in great detail. Meier covers all aspects of conducting from experimenting without the orchestra to creating signals that produce the desired sound. The methods he describes offer specific and readily applicable advice for virtually every musical and technical decision that occurs in the important phase between when a conductor first decides upon a specific score and the first rehearsal with an orchestra. And from ear training to working with musicians to programming, he also offers his expertise on the day-to-day aspects of conducting and musical performance. The Score, The Orchestra, and the Conductor will be an indispensable and often-read contribution to the library of every music director and conducting student.

One of the best conducting texts I've encountered 17 novembre 2009
Par Elle - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Conducting is one of the most difficult things to study, and nothing is more valuable than getting in front of an orchestra and just doing it. Unfortunately, that isn't an opportunity that most people have, so it's incredibly valuable to watch and read about the technique of more experienced conductors. Meier's text is incredibly useful for that purpose- he goes through various excerpts of musical literature and writes out suggested ways to conduct them. Such examples include a good section on preparatory beats and different ways of delivering them, cutoffs, and cueing. His system of symbols and beat patterns might be confusing at first, but are definitely worth investing time into in order to receive the "aha" moments.

The book is divided into several chapters, but I found the chapters on beating and preparing the orchestra to be most useful. However, there is also a substantial area devoted to different assignments of the orchestra and the benefits of each layout which I haven't encountered as thoroughly in many conducting books, and this text is probably worth buying just for Meier's comments on different orchestral setups.

Highly recommended.

Any conductor of any level will learn from this book. 23 janvier 2012

This book is the best resource on conducting. You must have a small knowledge of technique, but thankfully this book is not about that. It's about how to interpret, prepare, and rehearse scores like a pro in the most efficient way possible. Meier has an extensive system of shorthand notation that occur throughout the book. These notations can be applied to any score you are going to conduct, and if you gain familiarity with his notation, you will be able to save hours of time in rehearsal and also in independent practice. The amount of time it takes to learn the shorthand is very minimal, and it will save you maximal amounts of time. Here are the best sections of the book in my opinion and why:

Preparatory Beats - while anyone who has studied conducting technique will find this trivial, there are example preparatory beats of almost every type, from recitative, to huge orchestral tutti, to solo instruments. This book has them all written out in score form, cited, and explained. Meier explains why the passages are prepped the way they are, and additional suggestions on certain passages. His system of notating how to beat these passages is confusing at first, but if you use your logic, you will begin to understand very quickly that it is a very efficient and helpful notation. These notations can even be marked in the score.

Score Preparation - This is the most important activity a conductor can spend his/her time on. Meier has an entire method on how to mark scores with regard to phrasings, orchestration, important parts, which instruments should be cued and which ones can function on their own. If you follow his advice, you will be able to conduct some of the more difficult scores in a fraction of the time you would have spend trying to memorize these things. He shows you how to look through the score and pick out what is worthy of marking. and how to gain familiarity with any score. Score prep saves so much time in rehearsal, and also is the quickest way to memorize the piece.

Cues - This book is worth buying just from the section on cuing. Meier has a system of diagrams that will tell you as the conductor what instrument should be cued at a certain time. Once you mark these in the score, you will have no problem cuing instruments at the perfect time. Please study his shorthand diagrams, they will help you power through a score and they will make marking new scores so much easier.

Rehearsal - The section on "The Zig Zag Way" is also a great chapter, and has more Meier shorthand for ease of use. This section is the only section that requires external information, as it outlines how pieces should be conducted. To get the most out of this chapter, I recommend buying one of the scores from Dover publications. Meier covers Beethoven Symphony #2, Beethoven's Eggmont Overture, Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, Bartok's Concerto for ORchestra, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture, and Copland's Appalachian Spring Suite. Meier shows you how these scores should be marked up, conducted, and rehearsed. It's a great section if you have the score to even one of the pieces.

All in all this book is great to improve the efficiency of your time spent in front of the orchestra. It is NOT a substitue for a private teacher, or any amount of orchestral rehearsal sessions. It is a supplement that will allow you to make the most of your home practice and study. If you mark up your scores with Meier's shorthand, and learn them by heart with this book, when you step in front of the orchestra, you will feel more confident and will have a way more efficient rehearsal.

A thorough book, but not for beginners 2 février 2014
Par David C. Bugli - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Gustav Meier's book has very detailed ideas about baton technique, and he deals with many situations. There are plenty of examples from the standard repertoire on how to cue entrances and how to start a composition or movement. His style of baton movement notation was new to me, so it will probably best for readers to familiarize themselves with his notation. Without doing this step, someone picking up the book in the first 60 pages would get some wrong ideas of what he was recommending. I liked some of the visual cues that he suggests putting in one's score, especially those related to cuing the woodwinds and the strings. The index in the back points to problems and opportunities in standard repertoire, and this can be handy when one is learning a new piece and just refreshing their approach to a piece one has done before. I found four or five "gems" like this related to a piece that I am preparing for performance after a 10-year hiatus. This book is well worth the cost.

This book, written by a master conductor, came as advertised and I am very pleased with it. Its good condition makes it appropriate as a gift to my best music student who may go on, helped by the information in the book, to be a stellar conductor himself.
