The music conductor makes sure that the music piece is interpreted properly by acting as the guide to the musicians or singers. He chooses and studies the music score, may make certain adjustments to it and relay his ideas to the performers so that when the music is played, there is unity and harmony. He schedules rehearsals, plans the orchestra's repertoire and attends to other matters concerning the group he leads.
This really derends on the era and the occasion: Handels "Music for the royal Fireworks" was preformed in Vaxhall Gardens so a large number of instruments houndreds. However most early Baroque orchestras hav about 12 inst. and a harpsicord or an organ. However in later orchestras we can observe more use of brass (natural trumpets) and woodwind (recorders, and oboes/ shawms) when the orchestras grew the exceeded 20 inst. Hope this helps R.O.D
