"Orchestral Combinations demonstrates specific instrumental combinations that have intrigued past and present composers and suggests other groupings that may prove to be of equal validity and tonal interest. This book is a thesaurus of orchestral combinations, a lexicon of the science and art of fusing timbre and sonority in symphonic scoring. Few standard manuals devote such attention to this fascinating subject as it directly relates to the imaginative deployment of orchestral instruments."--BOOK JACKET

This text provides the first comprehensive examination of pictographic notation. Pictographic musical notation represents the relevant instruments themselves rendered visually rather than verbally. Used most extensively in contemporary publications between the 1950s and 1980s, its popularity has waned in recent years. This expertly researched work displays the resourcefulness and inventiveness of 20th century orchestrators
