Well, i've been attempting to learn Bottesini's Elegia in D, but I've run into a problem. I have no solo strings, and probably cannot afford them. I would tune my orchestral strings up a tone, but i've heard that its bad for the strings, and they will become too stretched out, therefore becomming very loose and unplayable. I'd assume that the increased tension isn't good for the bridge either. Is it illegal to take that sheet music, enter it into Finale and put it into the correct key for orchestral tuning? I own two copies of the song. I was just wondering if anyone knew off the top of their head. Thanks in advance.
