Subject: Bass orchestra

Unfortunatly, it is true that I will probably never get that combination
together.  A guy can dream though can't he?  I'm glad to see that the list
was excited about my plans.  The orchestration is not just low instruments
( notice the plus).  Almost all of the members of all the instrument
families are to be used (i.e. 2 piccolos, g treble flute, 3 c flutes, 2
alto flutes, bass flute, contrabass flute, and so on and so forth).  My
general idea is to use all the tone colors available except where they are
in extreme rarity, contrabass sax  (I'm still open to cange that one).  So
far I'm through the first movement, sort of a show case for double reeds.
I still have a long way to go, and will have to see what further
combinations I use.
