A complete textbook, handbook, workbook and quick reference book on orchestration, for composers, arrangers, conductors, music theorists and music engineers.
Ertugrul Sevsay is Professor of Music at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, Austria and has been teaching orchestration for over two decades. His extensive knowledge has led to the development of special courses in orchestration for music engineers at the University of Miami and orchestration for orchestra conductors at Vienna's University of Music. He has always believed that orchestration is just as important for conductors and music engineers as it is for composers and arrangers and was inspired to create this comprehensive guide as a result of the lectures, seminars and classes he has led in dozens of countries worldwide.
