I’m attempting to emulate the orchestral score of Jean Sibelius’s Tapiola (see it on IMSLP).
In the style of the time (1926) Brass instruments and the Bass Clarinet are shown on the (transposing) full score as having no key signature.
I can kinda hack this by saying in my custom full score layout that e.g. the Bass Clarinet sounds a C as a D ( Flutes and Violins etc. have a key signature of B minor) but this doesn’t seem right and what’s more, Dorico changes the Instrument Name on the Staff to Bass Clarinet in D.
But Ah! Yes, it’s local in the sense that it’s local to the Bass Clarinet staff. But it’s global in the sense that it changes the key signature of the Bass Clarinet staff in the Concert Pitch non-transposing full score as well as the Transposing Full Score.
So now my (non-transposing) full score has all the staves in two sharps … except the atonal Bass Clarinet.
I was hoping to achieve:
Replica (transposing) score per Jean Sibelius original
A purely concert pitch (Non-transposing) full score easier for me to see harmony
