The Silent Musician: Why conducting matters

Mark Wigglesworth has worked with over a hundred orchestras, collaborating with many of the world’s finest orchestral musicians, soloists, singers and directors in many of the world’s most spectacular venues. In his first book The Silent Musician Mark explores questions such as ‘Do you really make any difference to the performance?’ Exploring the conductor’s relationship with both musicians and music, and the public and personal responsibilities they face, Mark Wigglesworth will discuss the features of his art: precision, charisma, intuition, diplomacy and passion.
