Read it many times, and try out some of the assignments.

Then, when you are absolutely certain that you have the willpower, desire, and aptitude to get serious about your training, then and only then should you invest in the Adler. The Adler is state-of-the-art — but for that, you will have to pay university books store prices, even on site.

Get the recordings along with it, those are essential for reference. The wit, superb writing style, and breadth of information are all breathtaking as an orchestrator and professor takes you on a tour through the orchestra.

Highly recommended.

Artistic Orchestration by Alan Belkin Belkin has a series of e-books on composition, which are available for free download on the internet, covering Form, Harmony, and Counterpoint. What I really appreciate about Belkin is his approach to orchestration as a series of understandings about character and craft. Click through for a free download.

Orchestration (Forsyth, Cecil)

Creative Orchestration, by George Frederick McKay George McKay turns the table on most orchestration manuals, by getting all the ranges, registers, breathing, bowing, and other hard details of instrumentation over and done with in 34 tersely written pages — and then following this with a generous, page treatise on the theory and philosophy of orchestration.

The biggest thing this book will do for an orchestrator is to tell them how to organise and categorise their thoughts about texture, and such a simple and direct approach is desperately needed.

With that in mind, the book is organised around a series of exercises and assignments, all of which would be immensely useful for the student orchestrator. So if you want to download it, act quickly — there are a few, scant copies available for sale on the internet, some of these priced far beyond any reasonable budget for an actual working musician. See if your library owns a copy first.

Please click through the link on the title to order his book. There are thumbnail guides to instrumentation, but what Jacob really wants to do is get you to see how those instruments are used in practical, effective ways.

Then he gives you very useful assignments with each chapter. Absolutely worth reading and studying. And yet his direction is unique, original, engaging, and quite thorough. He has a series of six e-books titled Orchestration: A New Approach that comes with detailed illustrations breaking down the functions of a page of orchestration, backed up by audio samples. Anthologies for score-reading and analysis cover the great orchestrators and composers from the classical era to today.

Supplying contemporary scores for study is always rare and precious, and for that monumental effort alone, Ludwin deserves high praise. Sounds and Scores by Henry Mancini This is a great book for getting a look at some classic television and film scores, and seeing the approach of one of the acknowledged masters in the field. It comes with a reference CD of all the samples, which is priceless for a beginning orchestrator.

The Elements of Orchestral Technique by William Lovelock This book was written at a time when the Gordon Jacob text above was out of date, and composer William Lovelock wanted to offer an alternative. When printed in extenso, they are often enough to make a fair-sized book.

Whenever possible, they have been cut down either to a general formula or to the shortest possible list of what is practicable or impracticable, as the case may be. In this way, they can often be reduced to the limits of a few notes.

Some discretion has been used both in quoting and in compressing modern Full Scores. These, again, take up an enormous amount of As a rule unessential parts of the Score have been omitted, but space.

But in general an eye has been kept on their artistic No apology need be made value, from the point of view of Scoring. NUMBER of instruments with different mechanical methods of toneproduction and of widely varying musical effect must be grouped together under the heading "Percussion" or "Struck" Instruments.

Paris: Max Eschig, About 10 miles away from me there is such one and i regularly go there to borrow Composers conductors score and the CD's of the music of that score. IMHO he is one of the most underrated composers in music history.

I think it is partly because he was a complete outsider, unacademic -which was a sin in France at his lifetime- and completely out of any cultural context. He did start in life as an artillerie officer in the french army His most "popular" book is a symphony basesd on Kipplings book of the jungle le Livre de la Jungle.The Elements of Orchestral Technique by William Lovelock This book was written at a time when the Gordon Jacob text above was out of date, and composer William Lovelock wanted to offer an alternative.

I do NOT recommend any of them as basic text for orchestration! Most of these are readily available, with hotlinked titles to site pages.

In the Wood- Wind department, it is scarcely possible to group together these details of technical development. The Orchestra by Paul Bekker A superb, short treatise on the history of the orchestra, from its century origins all the way up to Schoenberg and Stravinsky.

In any case, only a very brief historical sketch is given. Sounds and Scores by Henry Mancini This is a great book for getting a look at some classic television and film scores, and seeing the approach of one of the acknowledged masters in the field. The real value here is in understanding the context in which the orchestra developed.

Finally, in the early 18th century, increasing awareness of the importance of internal balance, certain ideals of blended sound, and firmly established instrumental characteristics enabled orchestration to take its place as an academic discipline beside harmony and counterpoint.
