Choral Masterworks From Bach to Britten
Reflections of A ConductorBook - 2007
This book presents a series of discussions about sixteen choral masterworks, facilitating conductors, singers, and instrumentalists who regularly perform these works and wish to know them in greater detail. Celebrated compositions such as Bach's Mass in B Minor, Mahler's 8th Symphony, Verdi's Requiem, and Britten's War Requiem, are examined in terms of textual symbolism, musical structure, and identification of endearing traits of each work.
