Practical Conducting                                                    

Rodolfo Saglimbeni assisted by  John Longstaff

This orchestral conducting course is intended to fulfil the requirements of the established musician who wishes to gain and build basic technical and interpretive conducting skills. It would also form an ideal preparatory course for the conductors’ course taking place in week two of the summer school.








Private lessons in score learning skills will also be available from John Longstaff, bookable at the summer school through the summer school office. In all cases, the nature of the work assigned will be at the discretion of the course director. It is recommended that students prepare the repertoire thoroughly before commencement of the course.

Repertoire (any reputable edition is acceptable)


Mozart

Prokofiev

Bizet

Tchaikovsky

Il Seraglio Overture, K384

Lieutenant Kije Suite, Op.60

Carmen, Suite No.1

Symphony No.2 in C minor, Op.17, ‘Little Russian’

The emphasis will be on practical work for all, including regular sessions on baton technique, score preparation and rehearsal technique. Observers are encouraged and are involved in many aspects of the course including the technique classes but do not receive individual tuition. It is hoped to form, from within the class, an instrumental ensemble to facilitate practical work and to this end all orchestral instrumentalists, be they participants or observers, are encouraged to bring their instruments. Provision will also be made for extra sessions with a larger orchestra.
