Hope everyone is well.
Here I am again, asking about something that has confused me with an orchestra piece. 🙂
They are some sort of harmonic I gather, but not sure how to go about trying to play them.
Thanks in advance. 🙂 you are all the bestest
We played this in my orchestra a few months ago. In the orchestra we play such parts "a divisi" some players play the upper notes and others play the lower notes. The section leader generally decides who will play what. In the first picture you have a note you also have a fermata in which yoou would sustain the note as long as the conductor requires. In the second picture it is marked for the down bow. "mit dampfer" indicates that you should have a mute on. But if you are without a mute just play it with light bow pressure, softly, as it is marked double pianissimo , meant to be played soft anyways. Hope that offers some help.
