Music Orchestration Scores!

I realize that the title, Music Orchestration Scores, sounds like a person named Music Orchestration getting a goal in a sporting event. Of course, orchestration is absolutely the skill of scoring for orchestra or band.

There have been many who have made this skill into an art form. My favorites include Berlioz, Mahler, Ravel and Rimsky-Korsakov. These composers knew all of the tricks involved in combining instruments well, and achieving effective and original orchestral effects.

The above masters and their scores should be studied over and over again by students and professionals alike. Other composers that should be considered superb in their orchestration skills include, of course, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

For useful tips on orchestration with respect to color, texture and balance, dip into the resource book entitled Ready, Set, Compose!
