This masterful textbook emphasizes the fundamentals of orchestration. Following a brief introduction to the orchestra, the authors discuss the instruments individually, then by section, and finally in the full orchestral context. Suitable for beginning orchestration courses, the book also contains more advanced material.
New to this Fifth Edition are revision of the chapter on writing of score and parts to reflect current uses of the computer and of photocopying techniques, a short commentary on the role of synthesizers today, and an appendix giving vocal and choral ranges.

From the Publisher:

As the leading text in the field since 1952, this text unites, as its three most important features, accuracy, utility and clarity demonstrated through both effective examples and commentary. As in the earlier editions, the emphasis is on the practical fundamentals of orchestration. The Fifth Edition has been expanded and revised to reflect new developments in instruments and orchestral practice.
