Abstract [en]

In this study I will research and reflect on the conductor's role during the process of preparation for a first performance. I will present differences between two kinds of working processes: one where the conductor is working with a contemporary composer on a piece of music that is going to be performed for the first time in contrast to one where he or she is working with traditional repertoire or with music already performed. Throughout the process I will also focus on the dialogue between the conductor and the composer.

The work consists of three parts. The first part is an overview of the process and its phases from the conductor's point of view. I go through the process and introduce some key points and challenges associated with it. In the second, practical part of my work I adduce a case of my own as an example of the experiences related to working with a composer in the process of première preparation. In the third part I suggest one solution for facilitating a better dialogue between the conductor and the composer.
