MUSCOMP 2100 - Orchestration 2

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2020

Orchestration 2 is a second semester course building on the skills and knowledge about Instrumentation developed in Orchestration 1. The course addresses the knowledge and skills required to arrange for a classical-sized orchestra of essentially double woodwind configuration. The course will be delivered in weekly two-hour sessions in which the first hour will consist of lecture-style presentation of works from the orchestral repertory (via scores are recordings) followed by a second hour of tutorial format in which students will complete exercises in orchestration. These exercises will involve: reduction from full score to short score; orchestration from short score to full score. The tutorials will include tutor review and peer review of the exercises. The stylistic range of the examples used will be from Haydn and Mozart to Brahms and beyond.
