By "mail17011" on 29 Mar. 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic book. It makes the orchestra as a body seem simpler and much easier to write for. I would say that this is another book that is essential for any composer or orchestator. It may not have the wit of say "A treatise on instrumentation" but it certainly has the clarity and conciseness. This is a good book to buy despite it not being the most famous!
