Fictional conductor, composer, and violinist from the 1854 book Les soirées de l’orchestre (Evenings with the Orchestra), by real composer Hector Berlioz (1803–1869). The work is a collection of pieces knitted together by interludes of comic bitching by members of a fictional, unnamed orchestra; "the orchestra at X***, a civilized town."

The orchestra conducted by Corsino includes the members:

  • Siedler, leader of the second violins
  • Dimski, first double bass
  • Turuth, second flute
  • Kleiner the Elder, timpanist
  • Kleiner the Younger, first cello
  • Dervinck, first oboe
  • Winter, second bassoon
  • Bacon, violinist
  • Moran, first horn
  • Schmidt, third horn
  • Carlo, errand boy

In the epilogue, there is a letter from Corsino to Berlioz, letting him know what the orchestra members think of his book, and a response!
