possible celesta error
S5 - Suggestion
- I'm perplexed by Musescore's automatic transposing of celesta parts down two octaves. I could certainly be wrong here, but I've always written celesta parts to be transposed one octave. Just now I checked some of the major orchestral sites, and they seem to agree that the celesta transposes a single octave. For example, look at the Vienna Symphony's celesta page (http://www.vsl.co.at/en/70/3196/3204/3207/5751.vsl).
- One of the problems with transposing a celesta down two octaves is that you are likely to end up with notes far below the bass clef, which are hard to read -- not to mention that it's unclear just how one is to enter a celesta part when it's posting notes so far in the basement.
