Conductor Leonard Slatkin

Ink, 2020
Approximately 23″ x 31″ Framed

Leonard Slatkin has a interesting combination of supporting the theatrical flair of the works with a specified, but open precision.  As though he had prescribed the rules but would allow the musicians to play within them. For his piece I wanted to show the precise intents of his tempo rules but vast depth and surprise of each instruments timbre and life. A lot of sound within his simple specified wave of his baton.

“I’m beginning to see that just knowing the piece is not enough. Having a clear technique is not enough. Having a broad repertory is not enough. I want desperately to get past all those things.” – Leonard Slatkin
