Could you please recommend me a book from which I can learn something more advanced about orchestration? I'm grown on Rimsky-Korsakov/Strauss' one, although I've heard the great books are by Piston and Adler? Also some more cinematic would be appreciated!

Thanks

I have read Walter piston's book and it is fairly good. It dabbles in some technical aspects for each instrument, which is quite interesting especially if you want to compose. However, I have not read Adler, so I can't help you in deciding in that aspect.

The Adler book is great, BUT it is very expensive and you really need the cd's that come with it(and they are expensive as well).
