 Re: Al Fresco chromatic trill

Individually, altissimo fingerings can vary with different setups, so the players need to work out themselves something that comes close. Collectively, from the recording, it seems to be a gesture where, if you have enough people really trying to play it, the average that comes out is a shimmering chromatic scale. Sometimes, composers write unplayable stuff because they really want the effect that results when people try to play it. I've read that Ravel was surprised when the winds accurately played the opening of the Daphnis Second Suite, but I don't know if that's true. Mahler does things with the strings where the point really isn't each player playing it exactly right and together. It's important not to stick out or be the last one to stop at the end, though.
