“Conductors are generalists” Since several years I’m working as a colleague of Achim Holub in his international seminars and conducting masterclasses in London and Graz. The participants are conducting students and advanced conductors from all over the world and with different backgrounds. My main focuses for these seminars amongst others are the following aspects: development of a musical imagination transition of a musical idea to a convincing bodylanguage internalization of the three aspects of “skills - awarness - trust”(Green/Gallwey, “The Inner Game of Music”) working on details in a score rehearsing techniques development of personality “conducting means to make decisions” philosophical, intelectual and social backgrounds of a composition as an important basis for interpretation development of a personal style of conducting
