After two volumes of reflections on conducting the orchestral music of Beethoven, Normal Del Mar now turns to the music of Brahms. His own interpretations, over a career of half a century, have been hailed as unusually sincere and thoughtful. As before, Del Mar''s insights will be of great interest to practising musicians and lovers of these great works.
Distinguished conductor.

Editorial Reviews

''these beautifully written books are to be read in conjunction with the scores: Del Mar takes the reader meitculously through the works, bar by bar ... he is completely trustworthy ... For both the student conductor and those with more experience, the books are thought-provoking, stimulating and above all illuminating. They are also extremely practical. Norman Del Mar''s own wide knowledge and experience of the repertoire shines through these instructive pages. In the immediate aftermath of Norman Del Mar''s death, it is hard not to read these marvellous books as part-autobiography. Thanks to the clarity of his descriptions, one can almost hear Del Mar''s performances on the page. These chapters will remain as vital a musical legacy as any of his own recordings.''
