In musical and general education the conductor must be unusually well equipped. He must have a great deal of musical knowledge; and I don't just mean of orchestral scores. He must also have a working knowledge of all instruments with which he is to come in contact, including the human voice.Sir Adrian Boult
Boult was a prolific recording artist and many of his finest recorded performances can be found on EMI Classics. He was particularly renowned for his interpretations of the music of the English masters, particularly Elgar and Vaughan Williams, and his much-praised readings of the music of Brahms, Schubert and Wagner can also be found on EMI Classics.
