PT54: “Don’t Shout at the Orchestra,” with Chris Zimmerman

This week we talk with Chris Zimmerman about Beethoven’s best music, what to do when you think you know a piece, and what you can ruin by tuning chords.

This week we discuss:

  • Start them with the Rite of Spring
  • The most important aspects of succeeding as a conductor
  • A genealogy of score study
