This vintage book contains the second volume of Ebenezer Prout's "The Orchestra", first published in 1899. This volume deals primarily with "Orchestral Combination", and constitutes a must-read for students and serious musicians. Contents include: "Introduction", "The Stringed Orchestra", "The Treatment of Wind Instruments", "The Small Orchestra", "Balance of Tone", "Contrast and Colour", "The Combination of the Organ with the Orchestra", "Orchestral Accompaniment", "Arranging for the Orchestra", etcetera. Ebenezer Prout (1835 - 1909) was an English writer, teacher, composer and influential musical theorist. Many antiquarian texts such as this - particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before - are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
