Scorekeeper for the Met: Stories of the Chief Music Librarian of the Metropolitan Opera (Paperback)
By John Grande

“Do you reflect on the many incidents that happen in life, as I do...some tragedies, others strange, and a few quite funny?” asks John Grande in this highly readable, lighthearted, and often irreverent memoir of nearly four decades as Chief Librarian of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, one of the great world opera venues, after a career as a professional clarinetist. He reconsiders a life both in and out of his work with maestros from Leonard Bernstein to James Levine, and with hundreds of singers and musicians across the entire opera world.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
