    Lesson 21-Free Interactive Rimsky-Korsakov Principles of Orchestration-Now Posted

    Lesson 21
    FREE INTERACTIVE
    PRINCIPLES OF ORCHESTRATION
    by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov
    Now posted





    For those following the course, Lesson 21 of the Interactive Rimsky-Korsakov Principles of Orchestration is now posted. In previous lessons we discussed composition of the orchestra and in this lesson we continue the discussion with emphasis on the use of SOLO strings in orchestration.

    Lesson 21 is posted above.

    For those unfamiliar with the course, the popular Rimsky-Korsakov "Principles of Orchestration" is one of the finest orchestration books ever puiblished. This online interactive edition presents this classic work as a multimedia, self paced course, delivered on the Northern Sounds forum. And it's free!

    It is our pleasure to emphasize that the course is free. There is no charge, no book to buy, no direct or hidden fees, no obligation, no registration required, no strings attached. Just come and learn!

    The course has 26 lessons with numerous interactive scores (275 of them) that allow you to see the score while you hear the music. There are exercises with scores, midi files and audio clips. There are online orchestration professors and a community learning environment where learners can discuss the topics and share their examples. Here's the link to the course itself: http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...splay.php?f=77

    Only a few lessons remaining! We are almost done and ready for new course.

    I welcome your participation.

    Dear Gary,

    In this course, til now, we learn(ed) very much about the Principles of Orchestration.
    We hear(d) a lot of examples, this is one of the most important parts and was impossible in the time of Rimsky Kosakov and in a book of course.

    I believe that it would be very nice to have on the end the possibility to listen to some music(master)pieces, that we allready heard in parts, complete as a closure.
    So we, the students, can listen and hear and figure out where all the special places are that we heard in the seperated parts.

    I hope more of the students share this thought.

    Til now it's very inspiring to study everything, I learned a lot about it and'll try to put it in practice (maybe this is a dutch expression) but I hope that you all know what I mean.

    Johannes

    Hi Johannes

    I will look into seeing if it is possible to provide more complete works. Rimsky-Korsakov wrote so much orchestral work it would be hard trying to figure out which works best embodies the principles taught in this course.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    What about 'The Christmas Night' for example. Would be great and fits in the season.

    Greetings,

    Johannes.
