This thesis explores the relationship between the composer and conductor, and how the artist who develops skills in both roles can have insight into their craft that is otherwise unattainable. The research was conducted in three directions: the examination of past artists; the examination of artists currently performing; the examination of the author's experience of the conducting of his compositions. The thesis presents evidence for the presumption that even if a conductor does not need to be a composer (and the composer, a conductor) to function adequately in the role, that mastering elements of both can create a synergetic advantage.
