View this post on Instagram As one book closes, another one opens. Harnoncourt’s book is a must read for anyone interested in HIP; for me the section on absent slurred bowing patterns for 18th Century Music (particularly Mozart) was insightful. It probably comes as no surprise to see me start on a text about Bruckner, which from the get go focuses on the preconceptions about the man, and more importantly highlights how much legend has clouded our thinking about him www.adrianhead.com #conductor #conducting #orchestra #harnoncourt #themusicaldialogue #bruckner #cambridgecompanion #adrianhead A post shared by Adrian Head Conductor (@adrianhead72) on Dec 29, 2019 at 11:38pm PST

View this post on Instagram It seems to be the season for mixing. I find myself doing an unplanned mastering of one of the recordings that we did this time last year: Dreams of the Earth. It’s been heart warming to revisit this work, which brought back such warm memories from the session, the players, the composers, & of course 4MBS for their space & recording on the day x www.adrianhead.com #conductor #conducting #strings #newaustralianmusic #corrinabonshek #bonshekmusic #adrianhead #adyensemble #4mbs #newaustralianmusic #corrinabonshek #bonshekmusic #adrianhead #adyensemble #4mbs A post shared by Adrian Head Conductor (@adrianhead72) on Dec 16, 2019 at 5:56pm PST

View this post on Instagram Consolidation time: parts marking for the Dvorak 9th Symphony sight-reading session this weekend. This is where you get to learn everyone’s part more intimately, which brings a new perspective on your approach. Sometimes it can feel like you’re arguing a thesis with yourself when you go through this process, but once you get past the initial feelings of being daunted it can be a very enriching experience. www.adrianhead.com #conductor #conducting #orchestra #adrianhead #dvořák #newworldsymphony #symphony A post shared by Adrian Head Conductor (@adrianhead72) on Dec 9, 2019 at 6:37pm PST

View this post on Instagram Some shots from this day three years ago, when I was in Budapest, learning from Maestro Gabor Hollerung, with the Dóhnanyi Orchestra. Gabor’s curious nature was infectious, and child-like in its unbounding energy and lack of paradigm. The greatest compliment that I can pay him is that I walked away knowing myself better as a conductor.

View this post on Instagram Some photos from last weekend’s sight-read of Brahms’ 2nd Symphony. Thanks again to all that could attend. It was a pleasure having you there, and I’m currently planning another one later in the year. Brahms? Bruckner? Schubert? Schumann? Beethoven? Dvorak? Stay tuned to find out. All the best. www.adrianhead.com #conductor #conducting #orchestra #symphony #brahms #adrianhead A post shared by Adrian Head Conductor (@adrianhead72) on Jul 19, 2019 at 3:45am PDT
