john carter Posted June 8, 2007 Share Posted June 8, 2007 Running through Mendelssohn's 5th Sonata last night, I had difficulty deciding how to register the opening Andante. The score indicates "mit 16" for the manuals, but every option I tried just sounded muddy to my ears, even using a double string which blends easily in most circumstances. Of the recordings I have, none sounded significantly better. I hate to ignore something clearly indicated in the score, but it just doesn't sound right. Is it just me, or does anyone have the same feeling? How do you register this movement? JC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
