In a previous post, you said the following in response to my questions on what orchestration textbooks to get: \"The secret of the Rimsky book (original) lies in the subheads because this is where you find the key lists of orchestral devices that make John Williams\' and everyone elses music sparkle. Herb Spencer, JW\'s late orchestrator, told me that to make it in Hollywood, you needed to know 1000 devices. The original R-K is where you find the list.\"
Wow. That sounds like a great grab bag of useful tricks, that would help me get started while I\'m studying.
My question is: is this list in all versions of the book? If not, which exactly should I get? (which edition, year, etc...)
PS: I am going with just R-K and Alder for the moment, and the Fux book for counterpoint.
