Lyrical Conducting: A New Dimension in Expressive Musicianship is the latest soon-to-be hit from master musician and music educator Ed Lisk. The concepts and instructional techniques discussed here prompt new and different considerations for what teachers and conductors of instrumental music must strive for. Lyrical Conducting expands one's awareness through the beauty of musical expression and its direction for greater musical meaning. Many attempts have been made to define artistry, expression, and the mysteries of music's finest detail. This publication will lead you to this discovery through: enhancing expressive approaches to conducting; building poise and finesse into one's conducting body language in order to visually express music's lyricism; searching beyond notation to develop a unique and personal rendering of a composition; developing a performance vocabulary or reservoir for artistic considerations that will stimulate your “artistic vocabulary”; and sensitizing one's emotional response to shape the beauty and expressive qualities of a personal conducting interpretation.
