During this century the role of percussion instruments in serious music has changed radically. From being a group of crude, though effective, accessories, they have become among the most important of all families of instruments. This book is the classic guide to percussion instruments available today. It sets out their characteristics and shows by clear explanation and numerous musical examples how composers are using them. There is also an important section on the notation of percussion instruments. With a new short preface outlining recent trends and developments, this new paperback edition is an invaluable guide for music students, performers, orchestrators, arrangers, and composers.
