Review: "This is a unique book from the pen of a distinguished musician whose experience both as orchestral musician and conductor provides a sensitive insight into the techniques and artistry involved in creating memorable performances. Christopher Adey's searching and comprehensive survey poses an answers the most important questions about a wide repertoire. As the lucky recipient of performances of my own music by the author I am well placed to recommend it as essential reading for all who love the orchestra and its music." -- Edwin Rodburgh
