I'm seeking for some uplifting/heroic soundtracks like bee movie/astro boy/sinbad etc., any ideas? Maybe someone got an insiders' tip?
Preferably scores for animated pictures (but please no dreamwork/disney/blue sky, couse I probably know most of them allready)
You probably all know the difference between a slur and a tie. If two notes are slured, they are meaned to be played legato. If two notes are tied they are meaned to be played without release. But what to do if I want two notes which are exactly the same to be played legato??? I mean if I would slur them it would look exactly like a tie, and could be easily confused... Do two same notes which are slured even exist in sheet music anywhere???
You can see the tenuto sign pretty often in scores, but I'm quite confused on how to interpret it...
From what I've heard there are the folowing interpretations when there's a tenuto sign: 1.play the note sligthly accentuatet 2.play the note completely sustained at all costs, or even longer than the actually note value is (make use of rubato) 3.play the note like portato/non legato (also it seems like they are using tenuto for single sustained notes, for example between two staccato notes)
So which option is the most usual in your opinion? I'm especialy confused couse 2 and 3 are two completetly different things...
Let's take this score for example, how would you play the tenuto notes on the first page? http://www.sendspace.com/file/0h74cx (score was downloadable from official page, so it should be allright to post it on here)
