It combines orchestral history and repertory with a practical bias offering critical thought about the past, present and future of the orchestra. Including topics such as the art of orchestration, scorereading, conducting, international orchestras, recording, as well as consideration of what it means to be an orchestral musician, an educator, or an informed listener, it will be of interest to a wide-ranging readership of music historians and professional or amateur performers.

Biografie (woord)

Colin Lawson is Pro Vice-Chancellor of Thames Valley University, having previously been Professor of Music at Goldsmiths' College, University of London. He has an international profile as a solo clarinettist and plays with the Hanover Band, the English Consort and the King's Consort. His publications for Cambridge University Press include The Cambridge Companion to the Clarinet (1995), Mozart: Clarinet Concerto (1996), Brahms: Clarinet Quintet (1998), The Historical Performance of Music (with Robin Stowell) (1999), The Early Clarinet (2000).


'Colin Lawson's book provides both a fascinating introduction to orchestra's many facets and a stimulating set of diverse essays … this book is a stimulating resource, and will provide an excellent addition to any bookshelf … I should be surprised if even those who live and breathe orchestras do not find thought-provoking material here, as well as anecdotes to delight in.' British Journal of Music Education
