Hi, I recently completed two movementa of a classical suite that I am currently composing for the String Orchestra. I intend to play it in my school's String Ensemble in the future. Any feedback and thoughts are deeply appreciated. Thank you!
Hey! I just finished an arrangement of space oddity and I want to know what you think about it. Here is the link https://musescore.com/user/24238096/scores/5785124
maybe you have the words to it?
I am arranging Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for a string quartet. I might add a double bass if I think it is necessary, but so far, no issues with it being a quartet, at least not in the first and second movements. Now I'm arranging the Presto Agitato and as if it wasn't hard enough with the need to smoothly transition from the viola to the violin in those sixteenths, if I keep the interval relationship, the notes are going to be too high. I could get away with this octave displacement in the previous 2 movements(With the first movement, I basically did this octave displacement for the entire bass line to fit it into the cello), but now, the octaves the sixteenths are in are crucial to getting the right sound out of the Presto Agitato.
There are 2 things I can think of as to how to get the Presto Agitato to sound right, one of which keeps the instrumentation, and another of which keeps the original octaves.
Option 1: Add Double Bass
This would keep the original octaves, and I could have it play the bass line and have the sixteenths start in the cello and rise upwards to the viola and second violin.
Option 2: Move bass line to Viola for first measure of each arpeggio run
This would keep the instrumentation I have going of a string quartet and for everything except the bass line, the original octaves would be kept as well.
Which one of these 2 options do you think would be better? Any other suggestions?
NOTE: I'm only asking about the arpeggio runs, the scales and Alberti bass are easier to arrange.

I'd like to play it with my sister, we are both Grade 8 ABRSM. I've trained making it myself but it's not good at all :(
I arrange simple but effective numbers for small drum and bugle corps. I haven't been able to figure out how to upload my scores to "give back" for some of the scores I've downloaded to build on. I'd appreciate any advice
and probably fill you w/ memories from your childhood
My name is Don. I wonder if there is room in this group for an old kid? I live in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area. I have been arranging and composing for 4 or 5 years now. I use www.SheetMusicPlus.com to sell my sheet music. It gives me a thrill, the goosebumps, and a smile when someone buys my work for their choir/chorus to learn and perform. I am...

I'm a piano player arranging for strings!I have a question: If I have the 1st Violins play div., and i want both voices to play legato and staccato, do I need to put staccato dots/legato lines over both voices or only one?
