This book is the best choice for introducing kids to classical music and will give them graphic insight into the joy of an evening with an orchestra. The conductor's role is even explained and each orchestra instrument is clearly identified (without skewing all the attention to strings). As we near the two-hundredth anniversary of Berlioz's birth, Jacques Barzun's pitch-perfect translation of Evenings with the Orchestra--with a new foreword by Berlioz scholar Peter Bloom--testifies to the enduring pleasure found in this most witty and amusing book.

  A brief and breezy look at Berlioz's book of criticism and comedy, "Evenings with the Orchestra" (Le soirées de l'orchestre), accompanied by readings of . Tonight is the night for Bach’s Magnificat! We have a busy day getting ready for the dress rehearsal and finishing final details for tonight’s concert. If you don’t have your tickets yet you should get them ASAP!

This book is a good beginning guide to all of the instrument in the orchestra. It tells how each instrument is played and what kind of sound it makes. Teachers. This lyrical romp through the orchestra begins with animal musicians slowly gathering for the evening performance. Poetic descriptions suggest the sounds of the instruments, and.   Dr. Kern Holoman's very short introduction to the symphony orchestra opens a multi-faceted and insightful window on one of the most mysterious institutions to have graced the modern era. Admittedly the book has been written with a fairly strong North American bias but that doesn't detract from its value for European readers/5(6).
