This new course offers an overview of some of the great and frequently notorious conductors of the historical and modern eras. Especially useful for those who collect recordings, this course will educate participants in perceiving the essential characteristics that distinguish different interpreters of symphonic and operatic repertory. The richly anecdotal and highly eccentric nature of the subject will not be ignored, but the enormous difficulties of producing meaningful performances will be examined as well.
