Otherwise anonymous fictional classical orchestra from the 1854 book Les soirées de l’orchestre (Evenings with the Orchestra), by real French 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: " de l'orchestre de X*** - ville civilisée" ("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
