    On line Scoring Dictionary?

    I am presently studying numerous scores (and testing the Strad -emulating real parts in orchestral settings) and I come across symbols I don't recognise (even though I do read for my own instrument) Does anyone know a comprehensive on line dictionary for this? I tried google but no luck so far.

    Thanks in advance to the illustrious forum

    Would this site help? It shows symbols, but you have to know what their name is to ferret them out. http://www.music.vt.edu/musicdictionary/

    Thanks for this - Yes it does help. Are there anymore - particularly with score markings catalogued

    I don't know of any such sites, but I'd be willing to help if you have a few specific symbols you need interpreted.

    Isn't this a good forum! Thanks. OK at present.

    You should probably get your hands on a good orchestration textbook. Most of your questions could probably be answered there. There may even be one or two in your local library.

    "Flageolett" means harmonics. Try looking it up in the "individual strings" section of your Adler book.
