Originally published in 1935, this work on orchestral conducting is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It is designed as an instructional textbook and covers conducting techniques and the qualities of the various instruments involved. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in orchestral conducting. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
