Default alternate parts for string quartets


Our ensemble is a string quartet (sometimes a quintet) with a B-flat clarinet (sometimes trumpet) playing either I or II Violin, and while I (playing clarinet) can transpose parts on the fly, it does get tiring it would be great if you could post transposed I and II Violin parts for the string quartets. Occasionally I've found the transposed part I need tucked into another instrumentation for the same piece. Also, if a Double Bass part could be arranged for all the string quartets, slightly eaiser than the cello part, would be great so the Bass doesn't always have to double the cello.

I am all for samples when they work, but with the more solo stuff if you can, hire a quartet. It will sound a million times better, although part of the real sound is that it does not sound as clean as the sample. You will get the enjoyment of working with a real quartet and make some new friends with contacts in the classical world.
