Choralstration - A Practical Guide for Composers (Paperback)
Dr. Harold Rosenbaum is an internationally renowned choral conductor with a career spanning five decades. He has commissioned 121 composers (and counting) and has conducted close to 600 world premieres. This book is geared toward steering composers as they prepare to write for choirs or already have works in progress. The goal is to provide them with confidence that every aspect of their scores will be easy for singers to understand and navigate, and to make them attractive, intelligible, and enticing for interested conductors.
Practical advice regarding interacting with conductors and singers is also presented. An anthology of twenty-five works with the author's interpretive markings and performance suggestions offers further insights and guiding principles to assist composers as they prepare their scores.
