Lesson 24 of the Interactive Rimsky-Korsakov Principles of Orchestration is now posted.

This lesson discusses crescendo and diminuendo, diverging and converging progressions, and tone quality as a harmonic force.

The lesson is now posted above.

If you are new here, Rimsky-Korsakov's "Principles of Orchestration" is one of the finest orchestration books ever published. This online interactive edition presents this classic work as a multimedia, self paced course, delivered on the Northern Sounds forum. It is our pleasure to emphasize that the course is free. There is no charge, direct or hidden, no registration required, no book to buy, no obligation and no strings attached. Just come and learn!

We are almost finished with the first run of the course. Only one lesson remains and then a wrap up.

I welcome your participation.

Gary Garritan
