Hello to all !
I am new here!
I have just bought the score to my two favorite Beethoven works, the second movement of the Emperor Concerto in Eb and the Ouverture "Egmont", and have been reading them along to the music.
I was wondering if there were any musicians amongst yourselves who would help me with something. The score is in concert pitch Ab, or F minor, but the "Clarinetti in B" are written in Bb or G minor. Also, the Corni in F, Corni in Es, Trombe in F and Timpani in F-C are all written in C or A minor, with no key signature.
I know about transposed instruments but I don't understand why all these different ones are in the same pitch on the score!
Thank you so much for your help, I hope this makes some sort of sense!!
