2010 Repertoire Report- KW

We all have our annual New Year’s traditions, and Vftp International Headquarters is no exception. As we say goodbye to 2010, we gather our crack research team to assemble the yearly Repertoire Reports. Homeless conducting students get a free night in our unheated plastic garden shed in exchange for sifting through the last year’s concert programs to assemble the revelatory document that follows.

Over the years, we’ve assembled not only yearly Repertoire Reports for my work going back to 2007, but also yearly reports for a number of conductors ranging from conducting students Bernard Haitink, Leonard Slatkin, Marin Alsop and Paavo Jarvi. All of the Reports and associated discussion can be found in the Repertoire Reports category.

Each year we’ve had more and more Reports submitted, and the discussions have been fascinating. If you are a conductor, please send your report and we’ll publish it here with links to your website. If you have a favorite conductor, you can go to their website and assemble a Report from the listing of concerts conducted in the last calendar year. Send reports to the office on info@kennethwoods.net

Meanwhile, my 2010 Repertoire Report follows below- discussion will follow in a separate post.

Follow the links to Vftp content about the individual works.
