Garritan announces Free Orchestration Online Course
Announcing a free Interactive Edition of "Principles of Orchestration" based upon Nicolay Rimsky-Korsakov's celebrated text. In this Interactive Edition you will be able to simultaneously hear and see examples from Rimsk'y-Korsakov's own works realized with Personal Orchestra. This course will be offered free of charge at the Northern Sounds forum.
Rimsky-Korsakov's genius for orchestration is unsurpassed and there may be no better source to learn about orchestration than to learn from what the great Russian master himself taught.
A well-crafted orchestration is a thing of beauty. It is important for a well-rounded musician to possess a basic knowledge of orchestration. Orchestration is essential for film scoring, composing for interactive games, backgound tracks, arranging, editing, critique, copying (notating), conducting, orchestral performance, score reading, teaching and many musical endeavors.
In this revised internet edition, we have attempted to remain faithful to the original translated text which was written nearly a century ago. In the original written text, the musical examples are referenced and provided in score form taken from Rimsky-Korsakov's own works, but what was lacking was the ability to hear the examples of his works.
