There is no doubt that this book will appeal to specialists, including conductors, recording enthusiasts, musicologists, and performers. It provides unique information about conductors views regarding the artistic, procedural and commercial aspects of recording. Of greatest importance is the inclusion of 16 conductors who, while expressing varying viewpoints, are among the most important conductors of the past 15 years. James Badals interview technique successfully leads the conversation into many important areas, but allows each conductor to engage in some exploration of issues unique to the individuals background, career, and areas of specialization. Wayne Gorder, Conductor and Associate Professor of Music, Kent State University
In this collection of interviews with major orchestra conductors, James Badal explores the impact of recording technology on contemporary musical culture. Spanning more than a decade with masters such a Vladimir Ashkenazy, Christoph von Dohnányi, and Christopher Hogwood, these discussions offer valuable commentary on the digital revolution and subsequent compact disc explosion.
One issue addressed in Recording the Classics is how recordings have significantly raised the general publics level of musical knowledge. Classical music discs provide both entertainment and educationthe traditional, ideal vehicles for increasing the appreciation of great music among those who lack access to recital halls and opera houses. However, listening to music in private affords an essentially different experience that that of attending a live concert; both the public and the musicians are absent from the home listening environment.
Badal and maestros Pierre Boulez, Ricardo Chailly, Andrew Davis, Colin Davis, Antal Doráti, Charles Dutoit, Neeme Järvi, Erich Kunzel, Erich Leinsdorf, Lorin Maazel, Kurt Masur, Simon Rattle, and Leonard Slatkin as well as Ashkenazy, Dohnányi, and Hogwood examine the effect of technology no only in the listening publics perception of music, but also on the matter in which music is made.
