A valuable resource for instrumental conductors, conducting teachers, and students, this volume list and classifies over one thousand original works for chamber ensembles ranging in size from nine to fifteen solo instruments.
This volume provides a valuable resource for instrumental conductors, conducting teachers, and students. Most universities offering advanced degrees in instrumental conducting cannot provide a training orchestra or wind ensemble for the conductor. The chamber orchestra, which can be easily organized and requires a smaller instrumentation, provides a reasonable alternative. The chamber ensemble has the potential to offer training for the developing conductor and to expand the repertoire of the professional conductor. A Conductor's Repertory of Chamber Music lists over one thousand original works for chamber ensembles ranging in size from nine to fifteen solo instruments. The work includes three sections: the Repertory, a complete data base of compositions listed by composer and including instrumentation, publisher, the composer's date of birth, and the number of required musicians; the Repertory Classified, which lists compositions according to similar combinations of instruments; and a Title Index.
