Rachmaninoff - Moments Musicaux Op. 16 No.1

in Piano

I just started transposing this piece on Musescore, and something struck me as odd. In the second measure, the right hand progression is written as D flat, F, G natural, A flat, B flat, C. In every recording I've listened to, the A flat is played as an A natural. The A flat that's written in the score doesn't sound right at all. Has anyone else ever worked on this piece or noticed the atonality of this section? The piece is otherwise beautiful and I can't wait to finish it so I can share it with the community.

App is not usable

  
I have  problems with the actual Musesore-Version.

  1. I Importet 6 Files over      ITunes. If I open the Bibliothek / Songbook  the first time, the App      shows me 6 Files. At the second time it shows me 12 Files, for the third      time 18 files ……. Then if I closed the App and look at Itunes I see 6      Files.
  2. When I open a Song, the      App needs a very long time to open it. After 70sec I closed the song and      reopen it, then it needs 2 seconds to show me the song. The file ist about      48kb.
  3. When I would do a transposition,      the box shows me not the key and I cannot transpose into another key.
  4. If I would open the      mixer, there is no reaction.
  5. I cannot close the song,      I must restart the App.

In this Version the App is not usable .

Reducing Pain

Hi! I've been practicing the marimba a lot recently, and I have blisters on my fingers. My forearms are very sore and painful too (I can't even stretch them now). Could anyone give me some tips on reducing pain/preventing them in the first place? Thanks in advance!!! 

Need advice about the bassoon

You may or may not know this but I am arranging the Pathetique Sonata for a symphony orchestra. I have gotten to the second Grave section and the notes reach the very lowest register of the bassoon. Before I get too deep into it, I need some advice about the bassoon, preferably from someone who plays the bassoon.

Can the bassoon play pianissimo in its lowest register? Because the last note of the Grave section that I would put in the bassoon part is a B natural below the bass staff. I know the bassoon can be very mellow sounding but can B natural below the bass staff be played pianissimo? If not, then I will just have that note played by the double basses and notate it up an octave from where it is in the piano score to get the desired pitch.

I need music. Please. Thank you. :)

Okay, I'm gonna keep this short. I have a quintet comprised of 2 violins, viola (me), cello, bass. We are all in 8th grade, moving on to our Freshman year. If someone could please help me find some music to keep our quintet alive, please let me know. I would like "Wake Me Up" by Avicii, but anything that is upbeat and exciting would be nice. We are more dedicated than your typical middle-school players, however still require some simple music. Thank you!
