  1. Oooh, okay, now I get it. Thanks a lot!:D
  2. Okay, thanks a lot for your answer! I understand that it was impossible to retune the timpani during the piece, but I wonder why the timpani are transposed in this score: DME::NMA_KB_SYNOPSIS In other scores there is just a D written in the first measures, while in this score there is a C written (that sounds like a D I guess)
  3. Lately I've been studying Mozart's 38th Symphony (great work!). But looking at the instrumentation I have a few questions. Mozart writes 'Corno I,II in D', 'Clarino I,II in D' and 'Timpani in D-A'. First, am I correct when I say that Corno means French Horn and Clarino means Clarinet? I don't understand why he writes both of them in D? In my lessons about instrumentation I was taught that the Clarinet is in Bes and the French Horn in F, meaning that you have to transpose the Clarinet-part a major second higher and the Horn-part a perfect fifth higher. But Mozart transposes both the instruments a major second lower? Can someone please explain this to me? Further; I always thought that the timpani didn't have to be transposed. But in this score the timpani are transposed a major second lower. This means that there is a C written, but there sounds a D. I hope that you can understand me and explain it to me. Thanks in advance!
  4. I've got some cd's of Ferdinando Carulli at home, and he seems to have written quite a lot music for guitar and piano. Go check it out, it's great music! :)
  5. Well, I think that if you were initially planning to write a piece for four bassoons, you shouldn't change your plans because the program is playing a english horn instead of a bassoon. Print the Englisch horn part, then delete that voice and re-write it for bassoon. At least, that' s what I would do. :)
  6. Good afternoon, I'm looking for a good,digital piano that feels like a real piano. Of course I know you can't get the same feel on a digital one as on a real one, but unfortunately I don't have enough space in my house and playing with headphones is a real advantage ( if I don't want angry neighbours :P). I've never played the piano before, so I don't really know what I should be looking at when buying a digital one. My budget is about 1000 euros. I did a bit of research and there are three pianos that fit in my budget. - The Roland HP101. - The Yamaha CLP220 - And the Kawai CN21 Two of them are 64 polyphone, the Kawai 96. Is that enough for playing classical piano? (because the more expensive models are 128 polyphone) Perhaps someone on this board has one of these or has experience with one so he can give me some advice. Thanks! :)
  7. Should there be a part for every instrument? Cause I wrote a little piece recently (about 4,5 min) for a small wind section (in random order): -Flute -Oboe -Clarinet in Bes -Bassoon -Trombone -Contrabass -Bariton Sax -Alto Sax -Trumpet in Bes -French Horn in F -Drumset -Xylophone If you are interested I would like to send it to you! (in Finale format) :)
