In today’s classical music world, especially in the world of conductors, everything’s very much about music business concerns: contracts, agents, festivals, etc.

This is not the primary aim of what this blog is going to be about; my focus is going to be almost exclusively on the craft and on what that involves—formal analysis, baton and rehearsal techniques, aesthetic considerations and dealing with back pains.

It is also going to be a diary of my experiences in rehearsal and concert. Hope you will enjoy reading it!
