I wonder how many of us have played anything other than a Bb or an A ---
I am one of those who have not --- and therefore we're wondering how
much of a difference there is? It wold be foolish, of course, to
compare (say) Emma Johnson's C against my Bb. I'll bet many of us have
little 'gut feel' for the differences that this list is discussing.

The concept of owning every member of the clarinet family has little
appeal to me, but being able to hear myself play each of them for a few
minutes (not all on the same day, of course) would be very educational.



What is the purpose of a language? =A0 To be beautiful or wise or
pleasurable in itself? Or to describe many different things ---
beautiful or not --- to other people? This is why the question of
whether music is a 'language' is relevant.
