    Instruments in another language.

    Realizing most if not all of you are well versed in recognizing orchestra instruments in another language, I thought it might be nice to have a list for those occasions where you just can't recall. (Like myself the other night. Sheeesh! ) Or, just a refresher.

    Thanks Nickie! This is actually pretty cool! I've never experienced a score written in Bagel.
