VS Vignettes: Christopher Reiche Boucher
Have you ever wondered what symphonic librarians do? The answer is, it seems like almost everything behind the scenes! The VS Librarian, Christopher Reiche Boucher takes us on a tour of his realm. A librarian is in frequent contact with conductors and soloists to coordinate the editions and versions of works to be used, possible alterations or edits required, and their appropriate implementation. These can include cuts, inserts, supplemental rehearsal markings, transpositions and doublings.
