Posted on Thu, Jan 29 It is a very practically oriented book that also gives some nice insights into common film studio orchestration and recording practices.
Thanks for the input. 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. He did start in life as an artillerie officer in the french army I love every humorless page, every hand-notated, microscopic example.

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 Koecjlin himself.
Many, many subtle points. Posted on Sun, Jul 06 Also, Koechlin wrote a complete harmony series quite killercounterpoint and even ear training. Dave Connor Dave Connor. IMHO he is one of the most underrated composers in music otchestration.
