Description
Neville Marriner, a prominent British conductor who was Minnesota Orchestra music director from 1979 to 1986, shares his insightful thoughts, sentiments and aspirations for himself and the orchestra. His commentaries cover a vast range of topics such as rehearsal and conducting technique; the influence of the orchestra on the conductor and vice versa; the importance and intricacies of touring; the significance of the acoustics of concert halls and the necessity to adjust to various venues; the development of understanding between an orchestra and a conductor (analyzes his relationship with the Minnesota Orchestra) that results in the quality of the corporate sound; the effect of various orchestras instruments; the changes in managing and conducting orchestras that were brought in by Labor Unions; the comparison of prominent orchestras; the Minnesota Orchestra's European musical tendencies due to the origin of many musicians (mostly German and Scandinavian); his choice of repertoire; scrutiny of various composers and their music; and the role of music director as he sees it. The 1st part includes the questions posed by the interviewer. The 2nd part contains only Marriner's answers; the questions are cut out.
