Thank You for answering my question about winds doubling.
If I may I have another question about strings interlocking and I have an example here which I'm hoping You could offer your thoughts on. This is an exerpt from a piece that I'm working on:
What I did here is (referring to the first strings chord):
div Vlns I + II playing D4 & F#3
Vla playing B3
div Vlc playing D3 & F#2
My thought process was that the Vlns playing the D4 are in a fairly good register, the Vla playing the B3 are stronger there then the Vlns would be, finally the F#3 is where the Vlns are weaker and the 1st Vlns are enforcing them. The Cellos are playing a rhytmic pattern.
This sounds good in the digital domain but would this work in a live setting?
Another approach I was thinking about as I want to add a flowing Vlns melody was to do this:
div Vlns II playing D4 & F#3
div Vla playing B3 & F#3 (doubling Vlns at F#3 as they're starting to get into their weaker register)
Vlc as they were
This way I have the 1st Vlns free to play a melody
Are the above approaches workable in a live setting?
Thank you very much for your time.
