Dave Connor Dave Connor. Evan Evans Film Scoring Academy http: There’s also a two-volume french bible of orchestration by someone I think his name is Charles Koechler or Koechlin. I’d also reccommend Walter Piston’s “Orchestration”.

Also ‘Arranged by Nelson Riddle’ obviosly by Nelson Riddle which is great for lighter things – it never leaves my side when I am working! But my personal favorite is a little work called “Orchestration of the Theater” by Francis M. Posted on Fri, Jan 30 It’s great because he discusses theater arrangements for small pit orchestras in England.

This is an enormously practical book, unfortunately, you need to translate it thank you Google to get what it says. You cannot reply to threads in this forum. Many, many subtle points. Evan is referring to C.


Great stuff, also his Applied Harmony series is very nice! Posted koechljn Mon, Jan 26 Your Basket contains the following items: Windows 7 Cubase 7.

I love every orchestrationn page, every hand-notated, microscopic example. Posted on Sun, Jul 06 Granted, I have the second edition so I don’t know what, if anything, has changed in the newest edition.

Peter Emanuel Roos www. Posted on Thu, Jan 29 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.

Those are the two that have been most koevhlin to me, but if I have to check a fact or situation I usually find myself reaching for Adler’s first. I’ve had a bit of everything but find Koechlin and R-Korsakov to be the best of the orchestratiin. I’ll surely get those books and read up on them. Alexander Author, Professional Orchestration Series www.

Thanks for the input. They’re in classical French on a 9×12 page with 9pt type, loads of examples. You cannot post new threads in this forum. It’s actually Max Eschig’s revision of the Rimsk-Korsakov book albeit greatly expanded. Most orchestration books put me to sleep because they are so dry. Posted on Thu, Jul 10 If I had to suggest one, it would be Adler’s book, and then go for Piston’s. Overall, a serious work that’s never been translated.

His most “popular” book is a symphony basesd on Kipplings chalres of the jungle le Livre de la Jungle.

University of California Press, The author nearly dismisses every instrument with a paragraph. 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.

Its worth orchestraton a look at the older instrumentation books of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Hector Berlioz revised by Richard Strauss as well. If you have a fundamental working knowledge of orchestral instruments, and you’re tired of the umpteenth example of juxtaposing, interlocking, and superimposing, orchestratiln book is a nice change of pace.

It is a very practically oriented book that also gives some nice insights into common film studio orchestration and recording practices. He was passionate of motion pictures. It has been greatly enhanced and extended. The downside of the orchestration book is that many of the examples cited are published by Eschig, but unfortunately, aren’t recorded, especially the examples by Koechlin himself.

I think prchestration 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.

Also try and see if there is in your area any kind of Performing Arts library. Also, Koechlin wrote a complete harmony series quite killercounterpoint and even ear training. You cannot vote in polls in this forum.
