STOPS AND STARTS WITH GRAHAM ABBOTT
Starts and Stops
In these workshops, Graham explores the conductor's dilemmas: how to start and how to stop. How do I set a tempo?
How can I do it clearly? How do I change a tempo? How do I negotiate pauses? The aim of these sessions is to
give you sound principles which can apply in any context. Ideally, participants should attend both, as the second
will build upon the lessons of the first.
Be here, and be clear!
a. First movement, bars 1-33;
b. Fourth movement, bars 226-250.
Any standard edition will suffice. The Dover reprint of the old Litolff edition is very clear and the movements are down loadable separately from IMSLP here:
The second session will be based on
Act 1 Finale to The Pirates of Penzance
You can work from a vocal score if you can't get a full score (although Dover does print a full score now)
