The Conductor's Craft: An Advanced Orchestral Conducting Workshop


David Itkin

This advanced orchestral conducting resource features concise discussions of advanced technical and interpretive issues for 44 major orchestral works that all conductors will perform during their careers.

The brief discussions that precede each score cover the full range of issues encountered in real conducting situations, and the accompanying online videos show Maestro Itkin demonstrating the techniques for each excerpt. All music examples have been faithfully reproduced from original scores, and Maestro Itkin has also arranged each excerpt for string quintet, ideal for the conducting class setting.

With nearly a thousand performances to his credit, acclaimed conductor David Itkin shares the knowledge he has acquired over his decades in the profession. The Conductor’s Craft is for both up-and-coming conductors and seasoned professionals alike, equally beneficial for personal study or for use in a classroom or ensemble setting.
