Music as Alchemy: Journeys with Great Conductors and their Orchestras
Music as Alchemy: Journeys with Great Conductors and their Orchestras
by Tom Service
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interviews, 27 Jan. 2014
Tom Service has the remarkable ability to interview conductors in a way that takes the interviewees beyond mere platitudes and anecdotes. Both in this book and Tom Service’s numerous Guardian and Radio 3 interviews, conductors reveal aspects of their art with candour and honesty. I do hope Music as Alchemy is followed up soon with a sequel – another six conductors and their orchestras from the list of conductors referred to in his Epilogue.


A Very Short Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Leadership (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books)
A Very Short Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Leadership (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books)
by Brad Jackson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb overview of leadership studies, 27 Jan. 2014
Having just completed PhD research into the role of leadership in conducting orchestras, I can highly recommend this book. Although conductors can be perceived as archetypal leaders, the ability to understand leadership is not always seen as a priority amongst aspiring conductors. This book helped me get an overview and source leadership concepts that are relevant to the world of music and conducting in particular. An invaluable resource.


Croydex Magnetic Soap Holder, White
Croydex Magnetic Soap Holder, White
Offered by One Click Wonder
Price: £4.17

1.0 out of 5 stars Plastic at its worst, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The principle of the magnetic soap holder is great. However this particular product is not worth buying. It is plastic at its worst. The plastic broke after only a few months usage and now I am left with holes in the bathroom tiling as the replacement product has a different fastening configuration. Don't buy.
