In some ways it is easy to conduct a professional orchestra; if your technique is poor or your ear less acute, the players can make up for it and produce some sort of performance. But in front of a youth orchestra the conductor has to show a knowledge of playing techniques and an organizational ability immensely greater than the professional. He or she needs to know in detail not just when to put things right, but how. Written by a renowned orchestral trainer who has conducted all the major London orchestras, this book on conducting youth orchestras is intended for instrumental teachers and young musicians, and those in charge of youth-orchestra organization, as well as aspiring conductors.
