An orchestra (/ˈɔːrkɪstrə/; Italian: ) is a large instrumental ensemble typical of classical music, which combines instruments from different families, including bowed string instruments such as the violin, viola, cello, and double bass, brass instruments such as the horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba, woodwinds such as the flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon, and percussion instruments such as the timpani, bass drum, triangle, snare drum, cymbals, and mallet percussion instruments each grouped.

He conducted the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and other groups, and was the director of the NSW State Conservatorium of Music. He held these positions concurrently until March 1956, when he was forced to resign after a major public scandal, only a year after being knighted. Cover of the Suite for flute, violin and harp, or two violins and piano. Among his works as a composer are two symphonies (1940, 1945), two string quartets, two violin sonatas and a concertino for octet among other chamber music. In 1941 he made the first American recording of the Symphony No. 2 by Tchaikovsky, with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Goossens' recording ignored the cuts that were popular with conductors at that time.

Iain Ellis Hamilton was born in Glasgow on 6 June 1922. When he was seven years old, his family moved to London and he was educated at Mill Hill School. The three works presented here are indicative of the broad spectrum covered by Iain Hamilton’s output. Together with Peter Racine Fricker and Humphrey Searle, he was one of the first British composers to forge a reputation in the immediate post-war years. It is to be hoped this release will introduce new listeners to his individual, resilient and multifaceted musical voice.

There are a few instruments in percussion that can achieve the same effect, but on the whole they have a rather "cold" sound, while the harp's glissando is very warm. The earliest evidence of the harp is found in Ancient Egypt circa 2500 BC. They were shaped liked bows or angular and had very few strings (because they lacked a column they could not support much string tension). "Daphnis and Chloe, Suite No. 2" by Maurice Ravel) - This is a very important member of the orchestra, it's a harp. It's a very large instrument. A harp is made out of wood.

The first harp instruments existed already about 5,000 years ago. At that time the instrument looked different; the harps were small, did not have as many strings as today – and no pedals at all. This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together. The piano is an entire orchestra in itself – but sometimes its sound is a part of the big symphony orchestra. I would not want to miss that experience for anything! says the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic's own pianist. Konserthuset Stockholm.
