Imagine yourself for a moment in a concert hall. You are listening to a classic work played with great precision by an orchestra under the direction of an accomplished conductor. You admire both the composer, for the beauty and harmony of his music, and the conductor, for his artistry in realizing the intent of the composer. To achieve this effect it is apparent that both composer and conductor must know the capabilities and limitations of the instruments of the orchestra.
