Orchestration (MUS4013.01)

Nicholas Brooke

A primer in orchestration, for students who are selected to write for Sage City Symphony for their Spring concert. We will pore over the 19th and 20th century orchestral repertoire, getting to know instruments, ranges, and agilities. Analysis, piano reduction, and orchestration from grand staff will be used to internalize and hear orchestration. Students will be expected to create and get feedback on textural sketches of their future pieces.
