Before there were DJs, rock stars, pop groups and jazz trios, there was the orchestra. Whether it takes centre stage or brings performances and motion pictures to life, the orchestra is the magnificent original voice of the west.

Learn about all of the ingenious instruments that make up the orchestra and the luminary composers whose work has endured for centuries. Travel from the stunning Wiener Musikverein in Vienna to the world's greatest recording studios, all illuminated by David Doran's stylish and immersive artwork.

  • A beautiful gift book for music lovers of all ages
  • Information about instruments and the world of orchestral music will get young readers excited about learning to play
  • Illustrated by a gifted and renowned artist
