Collaborative Symphony

Does anyone want to write a collaborative symphony where we write separate movements but fit within an idea and a theme? FILLED, BUT NEEDS SUGGESTIONS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is how we are going to do it, we will come up with a theme or an opening melody, which will we will have our movements based on. Once completed we will compose our movements, and when we're done, I will put them together and all people who participated will uploaded it with credits given.

My scores aren't updating correctly...or at all.

I just finished some major edits in two of my scores, and now musescore won't let me choose the file to replace it with in the edits page, and when I click "save", a random plank page opens that says, "{"result":"ok","info":{"url":"/user/27321385/scores/5666087"}}". Nothing else happens. Is this a bug that found it's way in because of the new feature added earlier, or is this a part of the new feature that is supposed to happen? I need help.

What Do You Notice About Vivaldi’s Concerto “Il Grosso Mogul”?

It’s a strange concerto. I have already made a list in the piece’s transcription of “noteable characteristics”. If anyone has anything to add, I guess you could suggest something here or in the comments. Harmony, melody, rhythm, and anything else—I just want to know as much as possible about this intriguing piece!

(Please use the YouTube playback! Click on the mixer and change “MuseScore audio” to “YouTube playback”. I think you need to be on a computer and not a phone for this.)

@Caters I’ve seen your own transcriptions and thought you might be interested!

Stuck in my harmonic analysis, need some help

So everything went fine in my harmonic analysis of Rondo a Capriccio. That is, until I reached bar 281 in my score. I know that there are 4 sequences in a row. And I know that during these 4 sequences, it modulates from G major to Ab major.

Sequence 1:
Bars 281-288
Trill sequence

Right hand

Scale step down, Scale step up, Scale step down, Third down


Left hand
Same as or inverted relative to the right hand(it changes and about half of it doesn't include the third but instead has a rest)


Sequence 2:
Bars 289-292
Scale sequence

Right hand
3 scale steps down(4 sixteenths), third up


Left hand
Step up, third down


Sequence 3
Bars 293-303
Chromatic diminished 7th sequence

Right hand
Diminished 7th Alberti bass for 2 bars, going up 1 half step per bar, Major scale on second half step, skip of a third between lower note of second and third diminished seventh 


Left hand
Minor third, minor third up a half step, single note up a half step, skip of a third between single note and next minor third


Sequence 4
Bars 304-312
Dominant sequence
C minor chord breaks it off from the previous sequence

Right hand
Minor third above the octave in the first bar, skip by a third to the next 3 bars, all of it Alberti bass except the scale in the last 2 bars


Left hand
Octave in first bar, Major third in second bar with bass note up a fourth, Bass note up a half step in third bar, Bass note down a half step in the fourth bar


I'm not sure how to analyze all these sequences except the last one, the dominant sequence. Could somebody help me with this part of my harmonic analysis? Here is the link to the score:

Commission #1

Alrighty! About time we get into our first song of the whole shebang called Jam of the Month! This month's song is.....

Cherokee!

Cherokee is a classic up-tempo swing tune by Ray Noble made in 1938. There have been many adaptations and played recordings of this song, some of which include the original recording with Ray Noble and his Orchestra, Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, Bud Powell, and Christian Mcbride. Cherokee is all played in the same key, Bb major, but it's tempos and styles may vary. Listen to these many versions above to see which style you like best! 

Have fun with this one, people! Let's start it off strong!
