A comprehensive guide to the techniques of orchestral playing and the development of non-professional orchestras, Orchestral Performance covers all areas of orchestral music-making - instrumental technique and combination, ensemble, layout, repertoire and presentation. Christopher Adey - renowned specialist in the training of student orchestras - explores the responsibilities of both players and conductor, exposing many of the inadvertent results of interpretation with regard to sound and projection, and broadening the musical communication to which the less experienced orchestra can aspire.
Written in a lively and authoritative style, this unique book is essential reading for performing musicians of all standards, instrumental teachers and aspiring conductors, and all who have any dealings with the performance of youth or student orchestras throughout the world, as well as anyone interested in what orchestral performance entails.
'A labour of love and wisdom.' Times Educational Supplement
'A treasure house of facts, advice, and hints. I could not put it down ... clearly written from the heart and from an obvious enthusiasm for the non-professional orchestra and orchestral musician.' Classical Music
'This is a thoroughly readable book, full of illustrations and containing the thoughts of someone with a wealth of experience.' Music Teacher
