Nitty gritty

I'm into the nitty gritty details of my DMA document. I want to have a draft finished this week.

Question for oboists with access to the first oboe part to Mozart's Symphony No. 36 ("Linz")--or anyone with access to this score--or bassoonists with the first bassoon part. First movement, Allegro spiritoso section--oboe/bassoon line in E minor. (Rothwell "Difficult Passages" vol. 2, pg. 15, #466.) I'm looking for those measure numbers. The line goes (q=quarter note, h=half note, e=eighth note; grouped by bars): (qq)E-E (hh)E-B (eeeeqq)A-G-F#-E-B-B (eeeeeeee)A-G-F#-E-A#-B-A#-B (eeeeqq)A-G-F#-E-C-C. Five measures total including the pick-up measure.

If that makes sense to you, and you can help me out, please leave a comment here with the measure numbers or email me if you have my address.

Good luck, right? It's just an itty-bitty (nitty gritty) detail. If all else fails, I can hunt down a score (too bad this library is so small).

It begins in bar 79 and goes through 83, Jill. (On the third beat.) By the way, my part looks different -- it has no grace notes, but is notated as we play it. (Even 8ths.) Hmmm. I'm guessing it's because these copies (fromt the CD-ROM orchestral library) are Kalmus.

Hope this helps! :-)

The complete score. Online. I had read about this ... that ALL Mozart works are now available free online. Is that cool or what?

I met David Packard when our opera company moved into the new hall (which he paid for in a major way. He had a party last year for the opera cast & crew and I was able to see some of his Mozart project. He LOVES Mozart. I'm not sure if this was a part of that, but anyway, there you go! :-)
