Increasing experimentation, the consideration of non-musical criteria, and varying and often contradictory visions from artistic directors, audiences, composers, and musicians have drastically changed the manner in which the conductor’s role is fulfilled in new music.Within this field, the definition of a conventional conductor as a leader in all things musical and otherwise, is no longer adequate. This ambiguity presents a quandary for performance practice in new music for which no clear resolutions have yet been formulated.


My research aims to specifically identify and define a scope of responsibilities for performance practice of conductors in new music and through application, contribute to a continuing improvement of the art.
