You know, I played Mahler 4 a year or two later. :-) I think I played
bass on that, too. Of course, if all you have is a Bb soprano and a Bb
bass, it makes those particular changes a little bit easier.... :-)
Or, I just blocked it out of my memory....
Anyone else played the 2nd part for Evita? I think there's a 5-second
bass (or was it bassoon?) to soprano change....
