(Musical Conversations Between Composers and Conductors)Weston Noble, Charles Bruffy & James Jordan - GIA Publications
Listen in on a fascinating conversation as one of America's great choral conductors, Weston Noble, shares his ideas and beliefs with other notable choral conductors Charles Bruffy and James Jordan. This inspirational volume contains comprehensive and far-reaching dialogue on the principles that have guided Weston Noble throughout his rich and illustrious career spanning more than sixty years. It is the first time he has documented in a recording those facets of his journey as a choral conductor that he feels have been both life changing and life enriching. Also included are in-depth discussions among these renowned choral conductors concerning the nature and importance of spirituality for musicians and the music-making journey-an issue important not only to them but to any musician. Among the topics covered are: spirituality-the Body, Mind, Spirit connection; vulnerability-the role of feeling function; the teachings of Karl Jung and their importance to musicians-to name just a few. Also, James Jordan summarizes Rene Girard's Mimetic Theory and its relevance to choral ensembles and conductors. This audio CD set will be an invaluable resource for both conductors and choral singers who desire to explore more deeply the inner journey necessary for any musician.
