Is it 440 Hz? Or 442? Does anyone know? It sounds like 440 but I want to make sure.

  • Do you have a recording? You could try to measure it with your tuner or with a reference sound.

  • @harper Yes, but there's no guarantee the recording itself wasn't pitch-shifted during processing. Back to the question: who says they always tune to the same pitch in the first place? They probably do, but... Commented Dec 31, 2014 at 13:54

  • Google the orchestra, find an email address for a staff member or musician in the orchestra, write to them, and ask them.

Likely 443. That's what half a dozen other Russian orchestras use, claims http://members.aon.at/fnistl/page3.html (found via Why are orchestras tuned differently? ).
