It was still a reletively difficult piece but it sounded fantastic the first time we played it through with a full brass section (the afternoon before the consert) coming in on the first big chord.


Why was it transposed to a D minor? Because it's easier to play?

Only one flat in the key signature.

Okay, I've studied theory as well, and know that. I also know that it's not so hard in the original key.

C# minor is a fabulous key, but it's not the easiest key in the world, plus it modulates in the middle and we would've ended up in F# Major (6#'s) which wouldn't go down too well with the 2nd violins who had enough problems anyway.
