“Half the joy of listening to an orchestra lies in being on such friendly terms with the different instruments that we can recognise the voice of each as it speaks. From being a mass of unrecognisable sound, orchestral music then becomes an interesting and often exciting conversation between the various instruments that we have come to know and recognise. They will speak to us sometimes singly, but more generally in groups.
The object of this book is to introduce listeners each of the instruments in the hope that they will gradually become, not only acquaintances, but familiar friends – Bernard Heinze”
