A comprehensive guide to score reading of orchestral music for conductors and all musicians, music readers and students. It presents methods on synthesising a score, creating a sounding image of the score in the mind, reading in clefs, decoding single and multiple transpositions, making piano reductions. Each of the topics is complemented with a wide range of practice examples from 18th - 20th century orchestral repertoire. Maja Metelska-Räsänen, D.Mus.A. in conducting, M.Mus in cello, is a graduate of the Chopin University of Music and of the Sibelius Academy. She has been conducting professional orchestras around the world, symphonic and opera music. For more than 15 years she has been teaching score reading to students of conducting, composition, music theory and sound engineering at university level.
