Best conducting-related text you've ever read...
Date: September 17, 2015
The title pretty much says it all. What's one of the most impactful things you have ever read about the art of conducting? Article, book, website, etc.
I'll start... if you haven't read William Dehning's Chorus Confidential, you are missing out on a hilarious, yet incredibly frank and poignant look into what we do as choral conductors...
Specifically, his chapter on the conducting gesture called "The Craft," de-mystifies some of the more difficult conducting manuevers into simple, understandable (and entertaining) language. I highly recommend!
