The Berlioz and Rimsky-Korsakov books should treatiwe be on your bookshelf This is perfect for someone who wants to see, know, and understand how the various instruments of an orchestra work: Every part of the book except for a couple pages in the beginning talk about the specific instruments It also tell you what can be done on each instrument, what should be generally avoided. For the violins, it even gives the difficulty rating and subsequent sound from the violins for every Major and Minor key!

Some of which are impossible or impracticable, so be careful when composing.

This also includes a section by Strauss on the bsrlioz of some instruments between Berlioz’ time and Strauss’ time especially the Saxophone familyas well as a section by Berlioz on conducting. This book is comprehensive but indeed quite old. For someone who’s not using this textbook in a classroom setting, it is super hard to locate where the music excerpts are since they come from large opera works and there aren’t any measure numbers.

I see all the techniques labeled but it would be better if I can listen to it as well. This book was recommended to me by Amazon, having bought many similar titles in the past. Trratise is by far the best book of it’s type that I’ve found.

Hector Berlioz sets out each section of the orchestra in a logical fashion, reference book style and describes each instrument in a clear, readable and enjoyable manner. We gain, not just his in-depth knowledge of the instruments, but all his experiences of them within the orchestra.

He offers tips regarding scoring that can make all the difference within an orchestration. The editing by Richard Strauss does nothing but enhance the work, adding his comments on the more modern versions of the instruments etc. Who berlio learn from a master? This is a classic text on orchesttation. Written by a respected composer and orchestrator. Yes, it is dated, but the updates by Strauss also dated help. This is definitely NOT the book with which a contemporary beginner student of orchestration should start.


Blatter or Adler’s books would do much better. Kennan’s book, which was my first book on orchestration is inferior to these two, in my opinion. For a beginner, it might be hard to decipher what was valid at the time of its writing, but is now erroneous information. Again, a classic along with Rimsky-Korsakov’s text, but more for the aficionado than somebody trying to learn basics or contemporary practice.
