MAESTROS AND THEIR MUSIC The Art and Alchemy of Conducting

by | Read by John Mauceri

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In 18 years of working with conductor/composer Leonard Bernstein-- and having a career as a respected conductor in his own right--John Mauceri seems to have learned a great deal about communicating the subtleties of music to the public. Writing and reading this audiobook, he clarifies many of the mysteries of the conductor's art. While the book is dotted with famous names such as Bernstein, Birgit Nilsson, Gian Carlo Menotti, and more, Mauceri remains modest. His delivery suggests that these were merely people he met through his work, and their stories are there to illustrate his points. He is a fine interpreter of his own text, and there is so much information that classical music fans may want to listen to this more than once.
