Lifesaver!!!by rdbflute at rdbflute.comon March 8th, 2009
Would you believe it was the day before a concert of all six Brandenburgs and there was no piccolo violin part for Brandenburg #1.
The rehearsal started at 9:30am. At 8:30 am I got a call from the conductor wondering, since I had previously sent him some flute parts, if I might have the string parts for #1.
No such luck. But a few Google searches later and I purchased and downloaded the parts for B #1 and printed out the TRANSPOSED Eb piccolo violin part.
Our concertmaster was ecstatic. The part was clean, readable, and correct. And I managed to get it to him before the piece came up in rehearsal.
Thank you, VSM.
