comment Soprano recorder vibrato
To help locate your diaphragm, when you breath in, your tummy should go in, not out and you'll then be holding the air in the right place to do the vibrato. The effect is sort of like "fluttering your stomach muscles"

comment How many voices do violins usually play in modern orchestral music
As an aside - Penderecki split the whole string section into divisi to play a "wall of sound" that consisted of 30+ notes in the chord :-)

comment Key signature for writing in modes other than major and minor
That makes sense - mostly I found it on a whole bunch of Romanian and Russian music but they were German transcriptions. Have also seen it occasionally on Hungarian music.

Re: The mode based on E with a G sharp sounds like A harmonic minor - E is the dominant chord, A minor the 5th, but the major third pulls it strongly to E despite the rest of the normally sharp notes being lowered by a semitone. European music has some fun conventions like H = B and B = B flat when it comes to chords :-)

Re: I wonder what notation programs can do it - I'm pretty sure Sibelius / Finale and those newer notation programs deal with it fine.
