More than 150 years after Hector BERLIOZ,
More than 50 years after Charles KOECHLIN or Nikolai RIMSKI-KORSAKOV,
and a few years later ... a long job,
Editions Henry Lemoine have the pleasure to present you, finally in French language,
with Samuel ADLER: Study of orchestration
Original title: The Study of Orchestration,
orchestration treatise of international reputation.
A true editorial challenge, the book is proposed here in the form of a French edition, increased by 280 pages (33%) compared to the translated version.
Indeed, the original text, already rich, is completed:
- by Gilbert Amy, of a chapter giving us his look on the orchestra in contemporary music today,
- by Bruno Gillet, of three chapters concerning the human voice,
- 60 pages of comments and annotations, for educational purposes, of the translator of the book Philippe Vernier
- finally, a complete and powerful index (increased by 150%) without which such a large scale of content would prove rather quickly futile.
