An f? I always use an overblown e -- is this the Wrong Thing To Do?

You think you know something now, wait till you get your home page up
and running. :-) Mine is at
<URL:http://nyx10.cs.du.edu:8001/~gfitzger/home.html>. The only thing
even _remotely_ clarinet-related is the Atwater-Donnelly Home Page, if
you consider tin whistles to be clarinet-related. :-)

Missed it by _that_ much. :-) These days I prefer Shifrin, but
Stolzman's recording of the Rossini was the reason I learned it. My
teacher believed that the Intro, Theme & Vars. had to have been
editted from the original, because of all the high notes. Were they
practical when he wrote it?
