Are modern orchestras smaller than earlier orchestras?

No. On the whole, modern symphony orchestras tend to be significantly larger. Improvements in instrumentation have made for a wider variety of instruments available to the composer; for example, trumpets were originally available only in C and D, whereas E flat and B flat trumpets were available by the end of the 1700s. Similarly, instruments such as the clarinet and bassoon appeared a little later. Composers' styles changed through the years as well. As music became more expressive through the Romantic period, composers tended to experiment more with different sounds and combinations of instruments, as well as creating parts for "Violin I", "Violin II" etc. The modern symphony orchestra averages around 180 members, to which more can be added as the music requires. Early orchestras were comprised of just a few dozen.


Can you describe the evolution of the orchestra from the Baroque to the Modern Era?

Generally, the formation of orchestras in each of four periods can be summarized :Baroque orchestras had from 10 to 30 players, primarily strings.Classical orchestras used 30 to 60 players in four sections: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.Romantic orchestras had as many as 100 players or more, and featured greater use of brass and piano.Modern orchestras are a bit smaller than in the Romantic Era (symphony and other very large orchestras still exist). Some may focus on the unique (or even bizarre) sounds of individual instruments.


What are the five instrument groups?

Are modern orchestras larger than earlier orchestras?

The size of the orchestra for any given piece was usually determined by the composer's instructions at the time they composed the piece. However, on the whole, modern symphony orchestras do tend to be significantly larger. Improvements in instrumentation have made for a wider variety of instruments available to the composer; for example, trumpets were originally available only in C and D, whereas E flat and B flat trumpets were available by the end of the 1700s. Similarly, instruments such as the clarinet and bassoon appeared a little later. Composers' styles changed through the years as well. As music became more expressive through the Romantic period, composers tended to experiment more with different sounds and combinations of instruments, as well as creating parts for "Violin I", "Violin II" etc. The modern symphony orchestra averages around 180 members, to which more can be added as the music requires. Early orchestras were comprised of just a few dozen. This could depend, though ... the composer is the one person who calls out which instruments, and how many of each of those instruments, is required to perform his/her work. To state that modern orchestras are [always] larger than their earlier counterpart is not always true, nor is it false. The composer, whether from modern times or from centuries ago, is who determines the orchestra's size for any given work.


Why isn't the saxophone in the symphony orchestra?

Because the saxophone was invented after the Symphony Orchestra. The sax is incorporated into some songs for Symphony orchestra because those pieces are quite modern. I guess symphony orchestras don't like saxophones because it drowns out other instruments because it is such a loud woodwind. But, of course, the saxophone is great in jazz bands and modern pieces.
