INFORMATION
You are preaching to the choir Neil.

So i was exhausted and did not give enough information. I'll try not to
go to the
opposite extreme.

The conductor is trusting/allowing me to shape the part.
So i want to make full use of this opportunity. Performance of this piece
about 15 years ago was effective, but i don't remember many details.

And you don't [necessarily] know that i almost always have a copy of the
score for anything we play, (and my score usually gets passed among
several of the winds during rehearsal ).

I am continuing the score study, and searching out other recordings,
especially those recommended.

Reading the descriptions of each movement in the front of the score
reminded me of pictures...
And now i visualize that last section with the fog rising to obscure and
mystify the scene in the earliest predawn, verified by the segue into the
"Misty dawn on the Appian Way".

QUESTIONS:
I do wonder if anyone can direct me to pictures or more complete
descriptions of the scenes. What are the specific pines in each
location?
I imagine a pond or pool of water in the Gianicolo scene.

What the heck is a Janiculum?

REMARKS
Per your gentle instruction, i am continuing the structure and theme
understanding. I just about HAVE to do this, because i am dyslexic and
get confused easily while counting rests. Learning structures and
pencilling rhythms & instrument cues is better in the long term for
getting into the music, so ironically, the weakness may be a strength.

Mille grazi,
annhall
