    Default History of Orchestration

    I am interested in how ensembles have changed over time. Other than synchronic treatises, is there a diachronic survey of orchestration? Is there a "History of Orchestration"?

    I don't think there is a single book that covers orchestration as a whole over time. However, you could get lots of different books written in different eras for comparison.

    The only one I know of is the Adam Carse book. There's a preview here.
