[PDF] The Study of Orchestration Por Samuel Adler – Andy-palmer.co.uk

The Study of Orchestration Awesome book, but kind of expensive and no student discounts Written By A Renowned Composer Whose Works Have Been Performed By Major Orchestras Around The World, The Study Of Orchestration Is The Only Text That Explores The Characteristics Of Orchestral Instruments And Shows Students How A Master Composer Approaches Orchestration The Fourth Edition Invites Students To Experience The Instruments Through Online Audio And Video Recordings And Now Offers Coverage Of Writing For Band I needed this for my orchestration class and I kept it because it has a looooot of great information in it One reason I was willing to pay for this extremely expensive book was that the ad promised that The Fourth Edition invites students to experience the instruments through online audio and video recordings and now offers coverage of writing for band note NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS When the book came, it had a card in it with the web site URL, a password, and instructions for setting up your access with NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS I went through the process in question, with NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS Then after a year, I found my access blocked, and a message that if I wanted to keep access you better give us some money, bub.They can of course charge for their web site access if they want to But to advertise that the extremely high price of this book includes web access with NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS and then to include instructions for access in the book with NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS and then to have you go through the registration process with NO INDICATION THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ACCESS and then to spring it on you later that to keep access you have to give them still money than the unconscionably high price they have already charged in other words, TO SELL YOU A TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION WHILE ALLOWING YOU TO ASSUME IT IS A PERMANENT SUBSCRIPTION is very clearly unethical This company ought to be ashamed of itself. I m just looking at the book for the first time, but as a string player myself, I can already tell that the book hasn t been proofread very carefully especially for a 4th edition I ve already encountered a number of errors and inaccuracies a lot of them having to do with fingerings on string instruments , and it makes me wonder if there will be errors relating to other instruments that I m less familiar with that will therefore be difficult for me to catchOverall though, it seems like a useful resource to have And I agree with the other reviews that making you pay to extend the access to the examples online is totally bogus I guess it s geared towards people using the book for one semester and then just forgetting about it, but for those of us who d like to keep referring to the examples in the book, it s really annoying.
