Orchestral Instrument Names in English, Italian, French and German

As the title suggest, here is a list of orchestral instruments with their English, Italian, French and German names.

Though these rarely come up in the normal course of music lessons, this information is required for music theory exams from grade 6 onwards. It’s also usual for reading orchestral scores as, for example, Beethoven scores use German instrument names while Verdi scores use Italian ones etc.

If you are studying for a music theory exam and need any support or guidance, I offer music theory lessons in person in Alton, Hampshire, and online up to grade 8 and degree level.
