Now I overviewed the book and listened to the sound files...
I see that this book is good as a basic testbook for classical music not for contemporary.
Sound files include variations of "orchestration" such as of instrumental groups, of doublings, of dynamics, and of pitch ranges with same melodies.
Unfortunately....its sound (files) quality is not good. ..too much noise...
I think this will be a good textbook for a beginner and don't expect its sound quality.
As a fan of short pieces for piano and strings I find that the coverage given to the string section is extreamly helpfull. Notes on double and triple stops is very valuble and extreamly helpfull.
The book is full of exerts from many famous scores, and in my opinion, assist the student working without a teacher in deciding what scores they would like to purchase and study in full.
This is a great introduction to orchestration and instrumentation, and my favorite that I use frequently.
