Before there were DJs, rock stars, pop groups, and jazz trios, there was the orchestra. Whether it takes center stage or brings performances and movies to life, the orchestra is the magnificent original voice of the western world.

Learn about all of the ingenious instruments that make up the orchestra and the luminary composers whose work has endured for centuries. Travel from the stunning Wiener Musikverein in Vienna to the world’s greatest recording studios, all illuminated by David Doran’s stylish and immersive artwork.

A beautifully illustrated coffee table guide to everything you could ever want to know about the orchestra.

"Crisply paced and clearly written, this engaging introduction to the western orchestra is appealingly substantive."
Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

"Inviting illustrations and peppy text combine to make this book a winner for beginning music enthusiasts."
School Library Journal

Orchestra is to my mind a delightful and informative book that will appeal to music beginners, no matter whether they're children or grown-ups. Avalon Nuovo and David Doran should be congratulated for the charming book they created and Flying Eye Books for publishing it. A real joy from beginning to end and what I think will make a splendid Christmas present for a young music fan.
