For the Love of Music: A Conductor's Guide to the Art of Listening (Paperback)

£8.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Why do so many of us listen to classical music, and how can you get the most from listening to it?



In this unpretentious and instructive book, internationally celebrated conductor and teacher John Mauceri brings to bear his lifetime of experience and profound knowledge. A protege of Leonard Bernstein and an artist who has performed and recorded all over the world, Mauceri is the guide par excellence to the joys of classical music.



Mauceri illuminates our understanding of what it is we hear when we listen; how each piece bears the traces of its history; and how the concert experience allows us constantly to discover music anew.



'Wonderful' Marilyn Horne



'This delightful book is not so much the opening of a door as an affectionate hand on the arm, guiding the reader with enthusiasm and intelligence into a world of beauty' Stephen Hough
