Quote from: Ring of Fire on June 17, 2008, 01:26:37 PMEven though I can't wait to get back to college, I have a lot of practicing to do before then. Oh seating auditions (and I hope my new roommate will be a good person )
Quote from: GGGGRRREEG on June 17, 2008, 01:48:09 PMwhat are you practicing?
Quote from: mn dave on June 17, 2008, 02:14:51 PMWhy do we use so many CD images when we could just type the information?
Quote from: Ring of Fire on June 17, 2008, 01:59:07 PMmainly for Seating auditions. Saint-saens 3rd symphony. Last year I was 2nd bass both semesters, and the principal is student teaching this semester, so maybe I'll improve. hehe
Quote from: GGGGRRREEG on June 17, 2008, 02:26:56 PMcool..... if that's 2nd out of 8, not bad.
Quote from: Ring of Fire on June 17, 2008, 02:32:09 PMwell, 2nd out of 10.......(And growing)
Quote from: GGGGRRREEG on June 17, 2008, 02:35:59 PMlol, i was actually expecting you to say something like- no, actually 6! i'm assuming all 10 don't play at the same time? Usually an orchestra has 8 basses, at least that's what i've read in orchestration books but i've never counted.
Quote from: M forever on June 17, 2008, 03:43:35 PMThere isn't much in there for the bass - naturally, since it was written from a French orchestral point of view (although written for and premiered in London) and since they didn't really have an orchestral bass playing school at the time, there are only a few runs and some very moderatley difficult passages. What is tricky though are the divisi chords at the beginning of the slow movement they have to be well in tune and I can tell you now that will be difficult because half your section will not press the strings down properly with the left hand on the long notes and not play with a slow bow but well defined tone - they will play on the fingerboard producing a wobbly, timid, badly defined sound which will be very hard to tune. Unless somebody really addresses that, best in a sectional. The repeated pizz entries are also a little tricky musically because people always play them as if they were upbeats - but the first of each two notes is on the beat.Where do you play, BTW?

Quote from: Ring of Fire on June 17, 2008, 07:51:18 PMI play in the college orchestra of where I go to school, SUNY Fredonia. We played this past year Mahler 4, Some of the Dvorak Slavonic dances, the opera was Hansel and gretel. This past semester, we played Rimsky-korsakov's Sheherazade, Tchaik's Swan lake, Piston's Incredible Flutist and the Egmont overture and Weber's Overture to Der Freischutz. and this year, there will be another orchestra. Since we're getting a lot of more strings, there's going to be a smaller orchestra that probably will consist of mostly freshman and people who aren't in the opera this year
