Im writing a PianoQuintett at the moment. I have two problems there right now:
in the cello: when i write a portamento from a high f1 to an lower g and it plays all the notes in there exact, shortly one after the other instead of just bending down. (i mean instead of fe(eb)d(db)… it plays f, e, eb, d, db… maybe you understand what i mean) Is there a way to change that, or am i writing the wrong signs for that effect.
There is a part where the violin 1, violin 2 and viola play almost the same thing. now i want the viola to be louder. but when i try to add a “mf” to the viola it adds it to every instrument on top.
Thank you very much
