What makes for a "compleat" conductor? According to Gunther Schuller, it is a combination of fidelity to the score and going "for the grand line ... the clarification of the inherent structure(s)." Schuller, himself a conductor, has written The Compleat Conductor as a kind of report card on many of this century's foremost practitioners of the art. Using scores from Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and Ravel as his final exam, Schuller measures the work of the world's great conductors--everyone from Toscanini to John Eliot Gardiner--against what's printed on the page, and he finds most wanting in comparison.

The Compleat Conductor is partly an indictment of the failings of other conductors, partly Schuller's reflections on music, performance, and the authority of the score versus the authority of the conductor. Many of Schuller's pronouncements are sure to arouse controversy, but even for music lovers who disagree with his grading system, there's plenty of food for thought in The Compleat Conductor. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

"A remarkably through book and one that will have muscians arguing for years."--The Washington Post
"This is a unique book that has been waiting--begging--to be written."--Opera News

"Schuller's book should be read by every conductor, self-styled connoisseur, and concert-goer."--Los Angeles Times Book Review


"The opinions are strong, well researched, and convincingly argued."--Library Journal


"[Schuller's] analyses should be read by all serious conductors, for they contain insights that the ordinary listener does not consider but that, if followed, will help truly realize a composer's work."--Booklist


"For both the practicing musician and non-professional listener, the most moving testimonial to this book is the recording on the GM label (2051CD) of Beethoven's Fifth and Brahms' First symphonies. Schuller leads a hand-picked orchestra of New York musicians. These performances illustrate the kind of emotional impact that results when humility, love and respect for the score are brought to bear in performance and recording."--Travis Rivers, The Spokane Review


"[Schuller], in a book written more in sorrow than in venom, argues that most conductors ill-serve music, musicians, and audiences."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

Schuller has got an ax to grind here, citing laundry lists of "incorrect" tempi from the pantheon of conductors. Abbado is too fast, Bernstein too slow, Boulez too fast. On and on and on, like he is piling corpses,referring that everyone is wrong, yet he is right. Schuller is arrogant as well, claiming "Brahms never meant that tempo",claiming how stupid conductors have been by not following what the composer had indicated. If we did that, there would be little to listen to of interest within the classical canon. The grand masters knew nothing of performance of their new works, they guessed at tempi many times, it has only been through continuous performance up through today that such a thing as tempi has come to be affix in a somewhat loose way. Schuller knows his orchestration however with a focus upon blending of winds and strings and the problematics, like in the opening of the First Symphony of Brahms.I had wished he would have included a new work, even one of his own would have been fantastic to discuss,i.e. the conducting problems of a new work. Ravel's Daphnis & Chloe is a great example which he utilizes here. That work with string harmonics and virtuoso wind writing in multi-layered textures is again a great example. I suspect the editor perhaps cut out a chapter on Ligeti or Boulez or Babbitt. He should follow-up this book with another strictly devoted to music after 1945.

Many might frown at Gunther Schuller's lengthy, and by no means completely coherant, work on orchestral leadership. This book is not for the beginner. Here is a book for the music lover - to prove once and for all that great conducting does not come from the conductor's own ideas alone - as he [Gunther] restates something Ravel once told musicians: "do not 'interpret [what has been written in the score] ' - "REALIZE" what the score itself is saying to you!" Just one of Gunther's many messages: The score, written by the sole person who fully understood it, tells you what it wants. Don't ignore that without careful thought, and of course, 'compleat' understanding.

A superb 'textbook' for the fledgeling conductor as well as the seasoned music critic. Honest, well written, and downright startling information which is sure to bring new delight to music enthusiests who are willing to evaluate it's pages unbiasedly because they, too, truly care about the 'holy script' which we call the score.

This is a wonderful expose of symphonic performances based on detailed study of hundreds of recordings. The great composers are being betrayed! See the music in notation and read the results of Schuller's studies. Then spread the word.
