There’s also a two-volume french bible of orchestration by someone I think his name is Charles Koechler or Koechlin. Anyway, this is the book. This user group is devoted to the Orchids orchestration system and its users, but also did you read the four volumes of Charles Koechlin traite d’orchestration?.

Your Basket contains the following items: Your Basket is empty. University of California Press, koechlinn This has a lot of information on percussion instruments, a large section for vocal composition and a section on early instruments. Its worth having a look at the older instrumentation books of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Hector Berlioz revised by Richard Strauss as well.
Also ‘Arranged by Nelson Riddle’ obviosly by Nelson Riddle which orchestrattion great for lighter things – it never leaves my side when I am working! I’d also reccommend Walter Piston’s “Orchestration”. I have Forysth, Rimsky-Korsakov, Adler, Piston, and there’s one more I can’t recall off of the top of my head at this point, but I find Adler’s the most helpful.
Granted, I have the second edition so I don’t know what, if anything, has changed in the newest ocrhestration. Frankly, I wouldn’t settle on any one book, as books on orchestration are just orchestratioon sample libraries — not one is going to be enough and there’s always something missing in one that is in another. If I had to suggest one, it would be Adler’s book, and then go for Piston’s. Those are the two that have been most helpful to me, but if I have to check a fact or situation I usually find myself reaching for Adler’s first.
This is not a “how to” book on orchestration, but more of a discussion on current orchestral performance practices broken down by section. I also like oorchestration because it doesn’t read like a textbook.
Most orchestration books put me to sleep because they are so dry. Thanks for the input. I’ll surely get those books and read up on them. It has been greatly enhanced and extended. It is a very practically oriented book that also gives some nice insights into common film studio orchestration and recording practices. Great stuff, also his Applied Harmony series is very nice!
Peter Emanuel Roos www. Kent Kennan’s book “The Technique of Orchestration” is a very good book. I agree with the other recomendations as well. There’s also a two-volume french bible of orchestration by someone I think his name is Charles Koechler or Koechlin.

I am a 2nd chharles student of this book and Nadia Boulngier’s studies and I found the work this Koechlin guy put into his “bibles” was the most comprehensive of all. I’ve had a bit of everything but find Koechlin and R-Korsakov to be the best of the bunch.
Evan Evans Film Scoring Academy http: It’s out of print, but sometimes it lurks in old bookstores. A first and second edition were published.

The author nearly dismisses every instrument with a paragraph. But he discusses with great energy the textures of orchestration, the mixing of structural elements. If you have a fundamental working knowledge of orchestral instruments, and you’re tired of the umpteenth example of juxtaposing, interlocking, and superimposing, this book is a nice change of orchesrtation.
But my personal favorite is a little work called “Orchestration of the Theater” by Francis M. It is long out of print and harder to find than McKay. It’s great because he discusses theater arrangements for small pit orchestras in England.
I love every humorless page, every hand-notated, microscopic example. Evan is referring to C. Koechlin’s “Traite de l’orchestration. Also try and see if there is in your area any kind of Performing Arts library.
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. The French not only discovered Hollywood a long time ago, but valued its best work long before Americans.

They invented the entire orchestratlon of “Film Noir” based upon the American films of the 40s which were done completely unconsciously in a koechpin style, and in another example Chabrol and Rohmer published the first serious treatment of Hitchcock – who by Americans was dismissed as a mere entertainer.

Posted on Sun, Nov 09 orcheetration Dave Connor Dave Connor. Posted on Mon, Nov 10 Posted on Fri, Jan 23 Posted on Mon, Jan 26 Posted on Thu, Jan 29 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 orchesttation symphony basesd on Kipplings book of the jungle le Livre de la Jungle.
He could be of particular interest for sample user, because he did write some music for ofchestration as early as as He was passionate cyarles motion pictures. Some of his friends reported that he went to the movie as much as 3 times a day. Posted on Fri, Jan 30 Posted on Fri, Feb 13 They’re in classical French on a 9×12 page with 9pt type, loads of examples.
It’s actually Max Eschig’s revision of the Rimsk-Korsakov book albeit greatly expanded. The first section has an instrumentation section that basically replaces Gavaert and Widor’s book which Ravel took with him wherever he went, according to his orchestratioon.
This is an enormously practical book, unfortunately, you need to translate it thank you Google to get what it says. Many, many subtle points.
Also, Koechlin wrote a complete harmony series quite killercounterpoint and even ear training. Overall, a serious work that’s never been translated.
The downside of the orchestration book is that many of the examples cited are published by Eschig, but unfortunately, aren’t recorded, especially the orchestratioon by Koechlin himself.
