Widor's 1904 text is a remarkably detailed and comprehensive guide to the instruments of the orchestra. As a tutor at the Paris Conservatiore for four decades Widor's students included such innovative orchestral composers as Edgard Varese and Darius Milhaud. His Technique Of The Modern Orchestra features an abundance of practical advice regarding instrumental combinations and represents a highly valuable source of reference for today's students of orchestration.
