Summary All of us want inspired performances, whether we are audience members, players, or the conductor. But once we've mastered the basics, what are best practices for achieving true musical expressivity? This remarkable book from a team of leading conductors is a practical guide to the holy grail of any wind band performance: artistry. When is it appropriate to "change-a score? How can programming contribute? How can a year of performances be sequenced with creativity in mind? How much is too much "interpretation"? Each chapter provides a window into the creative process of ten remarkable conductors. In their own way, these conductors share a captivating range of approaches to the world of creative expression. The ideas in this book are informative, creative, yet accessible. No matter the age or capability of the ensemble, The Art of Interpretation of Band Music will help any conductor bring his or her wind band to the next level -- bringing us that much closer to the holy grail!
