S2E2: From paper to performance - score study, imagination & listening like crazy
Join us for a compelling discussion about the importance of score study for conductors and its impact on ensemble players.
Listen in as we share our unique perspectives, including Tom's insight as a player and Ingrid's transition from starting with recordings to starting with the score. We both emphasize the need to approach score study with a clear vision of the ideal version of the piece, instead of being swayed by the current ensemble's limitations.
The conversation continues as we explore the art of music interpretation, starting with the score and no instrument. Tune in as we discuss the importance of making informed choices and using the score as a performance outline. We also highlight the benefits of listening to multiple recordings for variety, avoiding getting stuck on a single version.
Lastly, we delve into the significance of imagination in interpreting music and the role of recordings in preparation for a performance. Get inspired as we discuss creating a clear mental orchestra to develop a personal interpretation of a piece.
