Hi Phil, thanks for listening.
This was a small band-all in CMB.
I kept looking at one note( a D#) which didn't fit in very good. It
seemed to act as a leading tone, but the harmony didn't support it. Perhaps it sounds OK on piano.
I believe that a common practice throughout the 19th Century was to enter wrong notes in written music & correct it when playing.
I was recently in a conversation about an arranger (years ago) who copied music by ear always altered enough notes to avoid copy infringement.
Thanks for listening, David.
I guess when your contemporaries are Brahms, Berlioz, Mendelssohn, chopin, and Schumann, it's hard to rise to fame.
I have enjoyed searching the Congressional Library for historical pieces.
