Anyone who has ever wondered exactly what a conductor is doing will find the answers in this book. Covering a multitude of issues including technique, player psychology, anecdotes, pencil choices and much more besides, Waving, Not Drowning is the indispensable guide to conducting, from upbeat to cufflinks. With the tragic death of co-author and doyen of the podium Barrington Orwell in an as yet unexplained contrabassoon accident, it was left to his colleague and friend Lev Parikian to complete the story on his behalf. The result is part biography, part coaching manual, all wisdom. From the profound insights of his professor, the incomparable Etwas Ruhiger, to his views on spectacles management, Orwell's thoughts, collected in this mercifully short book, will keep you enthralled from auftakt to ovation.

Painfully perceptive. Read, inwardly digest, but don't drop the baton yet.' Sir Neville Marriner'A must for any would-be conductor... Brilliant because it's both serious and funny.' Sir Ronald Harwood

About the Author:

Lev Parikian was born. After a tediously lengthy period of growing, he became an adult.He spends a lot of time standing in front of people waving his arms in the hope that sounds will materialise. He also spends a lot of time staring at a computer screen in the hope that words will materialise.He lives in London with his (redacted), (redacted), and three domesticated (and, rest assured, entirely neutralised) (redacted).He has never been to Uzbekistan. Barrington Orwell maintained an incomparable reputation in three-and-a-half decades of almost perpetual employment until his tragic death in an unexplained contrabassoon accident early in 2013.His work as a conductor was without parallel, and critical reaction was copious and unrestrained: ...Conductor Barrington Orwell was not able (sic) --South Yorkshire Bugle...achieved sounds undreamed of by the composer... -- Berkhamsted GazetteOrwell's conducting...took the art to a new level... -- Süddeutscher Blatt...quite simply beyond words... -- Torbay GleanerIncredible... -- Audience memberThe Beethoven...was...fast... -- Leamington HeraldI think it safe to say that in thirty years of concert-going I have yet to see a display of conducting to compare with Orwell's stupefying effort... -- South West Cotswold and District Newsletter

Review:

'A revelationary exposure of the conductor's darkest hours, with an utterly philoprogenitive Castanea of musical chestnuts, delightfully spread over the Maestro's early growth. Painfully perceptive but not too serious--read, inwardly digest, but don't drop the baton yet.' Sir Neville Marriner

'This is a must for any would-be conductor--of an orchestra, electricity or a bus. Brilliant because it's both serious and funny.' Sir Ronald Harwood
