Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"For its time the most comprehensive treatment of the subject." — New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. In what is probably the best general book on the subject, a noted English composer describes 57 orchestral instruments, tracing their origins, development, and status at the beginning of World War I.

Synopsis:

Probably best general book on the subject. Thorough discussion of 57 instruments, technical aspects of writing for each, much else.
