Hi Ted and list. When I was at Berklee I seem to remember there was some
research quoted as to the relative 'feel' of different keys. E concert was
always described as being bright or brilliant. If memory serves, some
studies were done, but I can't remember the details. Ted probably doesn't
remember me, but I was a bari player in those days who has only recently
come to the enlightened position of only having to lug a clarinet around.
