To acquire sufficient conducting skill, a conductor must decide which of many conducting styles is most effective for him or her. More often, it is a conglomeration of different techniques and gestures which becomes a conductor s personal technique. There are three major schools of conducting that have influenced the author s personal baton technique.

T is used to classify the various beating techniques presented in textbooks by three conductors: Max Rudolf The Grammar of Conducting, Elizabeth A.

Two of the three textbooks are among those most commonly 17 used in teaching pre-professional orchestral conductors. Max Rudolf, a conductor with the Metropolitan Opera from to and the music director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra from to , was considered by Erich Leinsdorf to be completely objective and he himself is a first-rate conductor. He had an enormous operatic repertoire, ranging from Mozart, 6 Gunther Schuller wrote: In my fifteen years playing in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, most of that time as principal horn, I worked, needless to say, with many famous conductors, such as Fritz Busch, George Szell, Bruno Walter, Dmitri Mitropolous, and Fritz Reiner.

But there was one conductor, much less celebrated at the time, whom I and most of my orchestral colleagues considered as good as or even better than many a highly touted baton- Max Rudolf We in the orchestra knew that when Max stepped onto the podium, we could expect first-rate musical leadership: clean, unfussy, intelligent, stylistically authentic conducting, whether the repertory was Italian, French, German, or Russian.

Influenced by social democratic forces, a modest social liberal Canada, came under attack in a counter-revolution that began with the inflationary crisis of the s, and emerged full blown a decade later, following the Macdonald Commission Report in What amounted to new economic constitution based on a charter of business rights and freedoms delivered by the Canada-U. Free Trade Agreement gave the Mulroney government what it needed to undertake a re-making of Canada along lines more favourable to big business.

Indeed the Progressive Conservative party professed a sort of business liberalism that was inimical to social liberalism. Under Liberal governments of the s, the amount of U.

Not coincidently, after the cuts to U. Bloc members campaigning for the yes side focused on unemployment and reductions to U. When the results of the vote are compared to the results from the referendum, a large swing took place: in areas of high unemployment former No voters voted Yes. Bloc members got elected regularly in every election until after the U. At the very least, you would think that the Liberals would have figured out that their abandonment of the unemployed helps explain why the Bloc won seats in Quebec the Liberals used to win.

They failed to do so, and in Quebec massively voted to be represented by NDP members who campaigned on protecting families from adversity. When they retook power in , the Liberals were intent on reclaiming the business liberal agenda from the Progressive Conservatives, who were reduced to a caucus of two following the election, and keeping the new Reform party at bay.

Under the makeshift banner of the Conservative Party of Canada, the Reform party, born in Alberta and created by Preston Manning, and inherited as the Canadian Alliance, by Stephen Harper, joined up with prominent representatives of the Ontario Harris Conservatives. In spirit and in policy, the CPC owes more to the American neoconservative movement, than it does to the historical pre-occupations of the Canadian Progressive Conservatives.

Significantly the Conservative name has proven a valuable brand electorally, as well as providing camouflage for neoliberal objectives. Operating under conditions of economic integration with the U.

The neoliberal project remains ascendent. Canada has seen the further degradation of the social safety net in every change of government. Under the two Harper minority governments, a comprehensive list of shutdowns of agencies, removal of senior officials, government cutbacks, reductions in services, and withdrawal of funding for civil society runs to a few dozen pages.

In the broad left conception, progressive gains come from social movements. It is expected political change will be initiated by organizations grounded in the working class, and policy advances won by mobilization of social forces in a context of growing 4 economic crisis. In a more radical formulation, the internal contradictions of capitalism are revealed, and more energy is released, culminating in more open class opposition.

Socialist and even social democratic conceptions of justice are inspired by Marxian claims of justice for the proletariat as the object and motivating force for political action.

Famously, there is no fully developed description of what a just society would look like in what Marx wrote, though it can be inferred it would be a classless society. What we do have is the idea of communist society -- from each according to his or her abilities to each according to his or her needs -- without a conception of how it would deliver justice.

Scholars have credited John Rawls with recreating interest in normative political theory within American political science, after the behavioral turn of the discipline in the late s. Rawls used thought experiments such as imaging oneself in an original position within a society, not knowing where one stood in the social stratification, to demonstrate the principles of justice.

The Rawlsian conception of justice as fairness has certainly encouraged others to try and produce a workable over-arching theory of justice. In Justice for Hedgehogs, Ronald Dworkin offers his interpretation of how a society could best organize itself around the notion of value.

Michael Sandel has attempted to synthesize years of teaching about justice into a unified account.

Amartya Sen, the acclaimed economist, has published a major work engaging with Rawls, but rejecting his approach, and taking injustices as a starting point. These represent only the more prominent of various attempts to proscribe what a society founded on justice would look like.

It is beyond the scope of this paper to engage directly with the arguments of these distinguished thinkers, or explore how they contribute to the theory of justice. Here the focus is on what justice means in practice, not on the important thought experiments introduced by Rawls, and debated by other philosophers.

Part Two: Foundations of a Just Society To put it as simply as possible, the people who own the country run it. The political skills acquired and demonstrated by corporations in dominating public policy count greatly in understanding how public policy has been shaped. But the point is not so much to change the public policy orientation, as important as this may be at any time, the goal is rather to see how the control of the economy by corporations is changing, and can be changed further.

The study of corporate practices by economic sociologists or business school academics yields insights into how the economy is dominated by a financial manipulation, and how work is divided on a global basis. No one can deny the existence of market forces, but holding out the perfectly competitive market as an ideal to which all societies should subscribe is less persuasive. The goods and services economy where some people spend their time producing value, and the fruits of common work are divided up, with part of the value created being appropriated by owners, and another part by governments, and where most workers receive only what they need for survival, if that, is where the rules of daily existence are established for many.

Transforming the social relationships within the economy is where reflections on creating a just society necessarily leads. What is happening in the economy as social inequalities are growing? What actions contribute to worsening conditions of daily life, and what, if anything, is being done to reverse the trend? The best get their due, and society as a whole benefits.

For economic liberals, astonishing rewards in the form of salaries, stock option gains make sense because they insure incentives to do well remain central to Canada. It is noteworthy than in Canada today about 50 percent of the workforce earn low wages.

If competition is the engine of the economy, what happens to those left outside the job market? Social liberals have argued, since the time Mackenzie KIng was Deputy Minister, and later Minister of Labour, over one hundred years ago, that the winners need to compensate the losers, otherwise the whole system makes no sense. It is not enough to ensure everyone should have a chance at great riches, no one should do without either. As we have seen above, Lester Pearson enacted most of the measures that made up the Liberal commitment to building a society where people were insured against social risks, in minority parliaments where they needed NDP backing to succeed.

Markets as Justice Kenneth Boulding famously quipped that economics was about how people make choices, and sociology was about why people did not have choices to make. If you assume the economy is a set of markets made up of consumers and firms, you paint one picture. If you see that people are working together to meet each other needs, you can paint quite a different portrait.

Agreeing on what kind of economic order dominates is a pre-requisite to recognizing how it shapes our lives.

Markets allocate resources properly. This proposition underlies much public policy. It is derived from neoclassical economics. Upon closer examination the proposition appears to be a tautology, based on circular reasoning. Markets allocate resources, yes they do. Meaning efficiently? Well that depends what we mean by efficient or productive.

It turns out the efficient or productive outcome is built into the neoclassical assumptions that go into constructing the market model. Instead of a model, what is needed is a telos an acorn that becomes an oak tree so to speak an over-riding economic purpose that cannot be derived from assumptions internal to a model.

Other than the philosophy of John Rawls and those debating his formulation of justice as fairness, the closest thing we have to an all encompassing account of what is good, and what is just, is general equilibrium theory, the foundation of modern mathematical economics, first laid down by Leon Walras. As a socialist one can only imagine how Walras would have reacted to the modern interpretations given by the Arrow-Debreu theorem to the world we inhabit.

General equilibrium theory suggests that, through price formation, all things can be measured, and made commensurable. Concert piano recitals, or nuclear waste, or 6 sporting events are all supposed to have measurable costs and benefits that can be established accurately through competitive market prices, and represented fully in a CGE model. However, outside economics, an over-whelming doubt remains about how much sense the whole one dimensional project of reducing what we value to market prices makes.

Without an overarching theory of justice like the one proposed by general equilibrium theory, most thinkers are discussing, but likely not agreeing.

Each of us is forced to set out in each research paper what we are about, before we can explain what we have done, and what kind of findings if any we can report. The business of policy making relies on ethical judgments about what to study, and how to proceed. The general equilibrium theorists maintain that their mode of analysis is founded on science and can be expressed in laws.

Market prices exist whether we recognize them or not. Scarcities decide how goods are priced. However market mechanisms are historically constituted. In Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith was describing a society that was emerging out of the feudal order. He focused on the practices of that society.

Famously he was a moral philosopher, before becoming the inventor of British political economy. His inheritance was changed by Walras, and his followers, who re-interpreted markets, stripping them of ethics, and transformed them into universals. Postwar economic policy was animated by a central proposition -- productivity gains are the source of increases in the standard of living and it calls out for critical examination.

Labour productivity is defined as output divided by labour time, where output is Gross Domestic Product, and labour time is hours worked. The problems with equating GDP with the common good have been well documented. A decrease in car accidents calculates out as a fall in output, for example. Standard productivity analysis builds on two very significant assumptions. First, that the current distribution of income is fixed; and second, that the existing form of ownership and control over production is a given.

These two postulates point to where advocates for a more just society need to look in order to change the existing order. Thinking about new forms of social ownership of production, and expanding on older forms of social ownership such as co-operatives becomes a priority when the current economy is not working for employees or communities.

Re-thinking about how income and work are related makes great sense when productivity increases do no translate into income gains.When dropped, the ball accelerates to the bottom, bounces, then decelerates until it stops at the top point.

The Tataki beat, which is heavier and more static than the light staccato beat of Rudolf, is more suitable for my interpretation of this piece. For the most effective performance of the author s interpretations, proposed integrated beat patterns are suggested for the phrases shown in the musical examples.
