Examining breath in its role as the ?delivery system” for ideas in musical performance, this provocative book makes a compelling case for the power of submitting oneself to its miracles. The study is divided into two sections?the first discussing the ?why” of breathing and the second providing the ?how” with practical applications for singers, instrumentalists, and conductors.
