The Use of Recordings by Orchestral Conductors in the Process of
Learning and Preparing the Score with Jan Pellant
This ONLINE EVENT is hosted by North Idaho College Music Department
One can observe the conductor’s work at his performance and rehearsals. However, we cannot see the process of score preparation because the conductor does this work alone. The lectures will focus on conductors’ score preparation process from the time they get the score to the downbeat of the first rehearsal. Additionally, the lectures will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using recordings in the score preparation process for both, living conductors as well as conductors from the past.
October 29: Introduction and Background: Conductors’ Process for Learning a New Score, With and Without Using Recordings
December 10: Traditional Ways of Learning Scores
