A List of
Instruments Would do
Know Your Orchestral, Chamber and Solo Instruments

A list of instruments is like a company’s portfolio… sort of. Allow me to me clarify. Would you invest money in a company that you know nothing about? Well, I suppose it’s possible to do that. However, that’s probably not the wisest choice, given you work hard for your money and you want it to be safely invested.

The same can be said when it comes to composing, especially for orchestra. If you know nothing about the members of the orchestra (instruments) and how they interact, it’s going to be difficult for you to invest time into composing effectively for that medium.

Any information is better than none at all. With that having been said, here is a list of some instruments and when they originated. Other snippets of information may include compositions that use these instruments, the instrument’s range and performers that have brought this instrument to the forefront.

Here’s the list. Click on any of the links within it for more information.

Brass

Strings
