Repiano parts.

How should I handle Repiano parts in MuseScore?


What do you mean by "handle"? Are you using the brass band templates? Or do you need help adding a part to an existing score not created from one of the template that already includes such a part? As far as I can tell, it's just a special name given to a part that is actually for a standard cornet, so adding a corner and changing the name in Staff Properties would do everything I imagine you might want done.

In a band context repiano roughly means "not solo"; in other words part of the accompaniment. I understand it's literal meaning is "stuffing". There is no physical difference in the instrument, just a difference in what it is playing and its role. The repiano clarinet usually plays the the same or very similar notes to those of the solo part, but doesn't do the soloistic bits.

Older concert (or military) bands would have clarinet parts named solo, repiano, 2nd and 3rd.

More recent music would likely be scored as 1st, 2nd, 3rd and possibly 4th clarinet. The soloistic bits if any will probably be in the 1st part but marked "solo"
