I'm playing Rach 2 in a concert later this month. In the 3rd movement the basses are instructed to muta E in D
. I'm guessing this means to tune my bottom E down to a D. There's a pause halfway through the movement at that point. Any tips for tuning down as silent as possible in that pause?
I'm not too keen on tuning down for the whole symphony as it makes some of the already difficult sections even harder
Any other advice for this Symphony would be greatly appreciated too.
