Intended for college-level music majors, this collection traces the history of orchestration, beginning with Beethoven's Orchestra (with writings by Berlioz, Wagner, Gounod, Mahler, and others). It illuminates how orchestration has grown and developed, and offers a variety of theories that have been embraced by practitioners in the field.
