Learning about Conductors, Conducting, and Musical Performance through Conductors’ Marked Scores
Monday, 18 November 2019, 10 – 11am
A discussion led by Dr Simon Trezise as part of the School of Creative Arts Research Forum.
Most conductors marked up their conducting scores as they went along. While some of the markings suggest analysis as they learnt the music for performance, others show extensive editing and re-orchestration of the composers’ original work, sometimes to the extent that the content is significantly altered. Study of marked scores is a fascinating area of study, for it is a link between the work and the performance that is frequently overlooked.
Simon Trezise is Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Music, Trinity College Dublin. He is the editor of The Cambridge Companion to French Music and co-editor with Ruth Barton of Music and Sound in Silent Film and author of the forthcoming Debussy in Context, Cambridge University Press, 2021.
