Nocturno (Score & Parts)-FL/2OB/2CL/3BSN/2HN/TPT
Publisher: Barenreiter (Germany)
for flute, two oboes, two clarinets, two horns, three bassoons, and trumpet
by Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)-German composer
Edited by Christopher Hogwood. Clarinet parts provided in both C and Bb. The scoring includes a part for Corno (Inglese) di Basso. Since this actual instrument (it is NOT a bass oboe part) does not really exist any longer, common practice has it played by a 3rd bassoon (or tuba or even euphonium) but not contra bassoon, as the octave scoring would be wrong .
