Here's a great mini clip of how each orchestrate member was seated during the Baroque Period, through the Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods. Watch how the orchestra expands with the number of orchestral members and the addition of new of instruments. In the beginning sparse seating was utilized in the time of Johann Sebastian Bach. Soon the addition of brass instruments joined the orchestra under Classical composers such as Johannes Brahms. During the Romantic period Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, and Richard Wagner added depth to the sound of their compositions with tubas, trombones, and more percussion. You can print out each seating chart for more class discussion.
