Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Study of Orchestration [Book only] (Hardcover)
This book contains a very in-depth look into almost every aspect of orchestration. This varies from individual instrumental timbres and ranges, to extended techniques, writing for specialist groups, percussion and much more! It is also great to use as a reference for when composer has used a extended technique, such as a trill, and where they have used it in which pieces.
It is well written, easy to read and find information, and accurate.
thoroughly recommend it for any music student, or composer.
Don't be put off by the title of orchestration, each instrument has its own individual section explaining its range, timbre within range, extended techniques, specialist uses, history and more! Perfect companion for writing for instruments that you aren't sure about its capabilities.
