|Renowned arranger/composer John Cacavas offers a definitive guide to arranging and orchestration from both an artistic and career point of view. In his introduction, Morton Gould writes: "Orchestrating is a highly complex technique and to many, even those with academic training, a mystery fraught with a labyrinth of hazards. What is required, along with innate talent and general musicality, is the practical 'know-how' ... To this end, John Cacavas contributes his extensive experience and ability with a practical approach to the practical problems of orchestrating. It is in this context most orchestrators must function, and to whom this book should be of benefit."|
Topics incude: writing at the piano the arranger as a composer modulation scoring for strings writing for woodwinds arranging for brass percussion discussion keys and ranges scoring for chorus with band/orchestra on making recordings the business of music publishing songwriting.
