 Re: How to play FF on the Cor
Author: Chris P

Cors aren't loud instruments and it's all down to the scoring and how sympathetic the players are around you.

If it's a cor solo and heavily scored, then you've got no chance of being heard.

This is why with orchestral cor solos the scoring is usually very sparse or there's no-one playing at all so the cor can be heard.

Cors simply don't do concert band level ff. They're a polite and refined instrument by nature and as soon as you get some git on tuba blasting out regardless, then you may as well not bother playing. Just based on my own experience.

Another gripe is if the cor solo is cued in the alto sax part and THEY PLAY THE CUES AND THE CONDUCTOR DOES NOTHING!

Chris.
