wind player assistance, please.
The first page of a score below (pdf)
This is a suite of dances each in a different key. This first dance is in e minor. SO...
I put the clarinet in A. However, it looks awkward with the Bass Clarinet in B flat. How usual is it for a bass clarinet player to bring two instruments along? (to put it in A as well.)
I thought I'd keep the trumpet in C throughout to make my life easier. Cs are now common, yes?
Also, I consider it high sacrilege to have a key signature with the F horn. (perhaps a function of my age?) How do I remove just ITS key sig?
