Abstract:

Part One introduces the woodwinds and thoroughly describes each of the orchestral instruments - their design, basic components, construction, variations and idiosyncrasies. Woodwinds primarily in use in military and brass bands and several folk instruments are included as well. Playing technique, matters of acoustics and pitch, types of reeds and reed-making and other related subjects are thoughtfully explored. Clear photographs of the instruments and their components are included along with fingering charts and diagrams. Part Two outlines the history of woodwinds from primitive times to the present, tracing various technical changes, particularly in the more recent processes of mechanization. Throughout, the author writes for the performer, the scholar and the listener.
