Hello and thank you for your posting.

Do you mean the corresponding translation of those instruments in English? Please, tell me more.

Thank you.

Best,

Yes, I can tell what the obvious ones are like Flutes and Oboes and Violins, but I'm not really sure as to the English Translations of the other ones...

Here we go:

Clarinetto -> Clarinet
Fagotto -> Bassoon
Corni -> Horns
Trombe -> Trumpets
Tromb. Tenori -> Alto Trombones
Tr. Basso Tuba -> Bass Trumpet (??) and Tuba
Piatti -> Piatti (actually they should have the same name)
Celli -> Cellos
C.Bassi -> Double Basses

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Piatti - cymbals.

I couldn't remember that one in English...finally found a website that has a pretty thorough list of instrument names in several languages - in case you start transcribing something from, say, a Russian score...
