This volume provides a valuable resource for instrumental conductors, conducting teachers, and students. Most universities offering advanced degrees in instrumental conducting cannot provide a training orchestra or wind ensemble for the conductor. The chamber orchestra, which can be easily organized and requires a smaller instrumentation, provides a reasonable alternative. The chamber ensemble has the potential to offer training for the developing conductor and to expand the repertoire of the professional conductor. A Conductor's Repertory of Chamber Music lists over one thousand original works for chamber ensembles ranging in size from nine to fifteen solo instruments. The work includes three sections: the Repertory, a complete data base of compositions listed by composer and including instrumentation, publisher, the composer's date of birth, and the number of required musicians; the Repertory Classified, which lists compositions according to similar combinations of instruments; and a Title Index.
