"Percussion Orchestrations" instrumental dictionary.

Sometime ago, in the article "Percussion Orchestrations in Spanish", I showed you a website named "Percussion Orchestrations" administrated by Ed Cervenka which, among other services, explains the distribution and parts of percussion instruments for more than 7500 works of the symphonic, operatic and contemporary repertoire. On that article I explained how I translated that web into Spanish.

It also contains an instrumental dictionary in several languages, but at the moment it was decided not to translate it due to the very hard work involved. Well, we are not afraid of difficulties, and the website that is now a worldwide reference, can now offer that database in Spanish.

This new service has been online since last april, and Ed Cervenka announced this update on the corresponding newsletter.

There are still some details to be refined, and some descriptions may be added, but the main corpus is already done.

I encourage you to visit this  website, and if you work in an orchestra, you will find it essential.
