The Interpretive Wind Band Conductor

The Interpretive Wind Band Conductor will help conductors make the creative leap from simply reading notes to insightful musical interpretation. In additional to a long list of topics on conducting and interpretation, it includes in-depth analysis of 6 masterworks for band and provides solutions for conducting irregular and non-metrical problems inherent in contemporary music.

“I must thank you for your musical and detailed commentary of my transcription of Elgar’s ‘Nimrod.’ Your in depth analysis and interpretive suggestions will help conductors give a musical performance of this piece.”

Alfred Reed

“Dr. Knight has produced a book that all wind conductors need to read. It is a comprehensive book that quotes many professionals…[he] has made a lifelong study of conducting the winds and has written an impressive book… It is an excellent treatise that can be of value to us all.”

W. Francis McBeth
