This comprehensive volume traces the development of the modern orchestra from its birth in the late 15th century to the present through 23 fascinating essays by leading scholars.

Organised chronologically, the book addresses the technical development of instruments, composers' changing aesthetic visions, the rise of the conductor, audiences of the past, the effect of musicology on the orchestra, the symphony orchestera as a museum, recordings, music in relation to other arts, and other thought-provoking subjects.

Enlightening perspective is gained about the orchestra and its place in society after reading the evolved and fresh ideas of various authors in this rich resource for professionals, students and music lovers.

With a new editor's introduction for this 2006 edition and a glossary of terms.
