The technique of orchestration
The emphasis is on the practical fundamentals of orchestration. The Sixth Edition has been expanded and revised to reflect new developments in instruments and orchestral practice, and a new listening compact disc has been added that contains selected examples of orchestration. A listening compact disc features selected samples intended for use in conjunction with the book. New musical examples and listings, and an updated bibliography which includes many recent publications. A short chapter on scoring for high school orchestras, and information on nonorchestral instrumental groups, including the band and the wind ensemble.
