About Bookmarks and Bookmark Lists

Bookmark Lists are accessed from the Bookmark icon at the top-right corner of the OrchPlay interface. Before loading a bookmark from the list you must have the related OrchPlay files installed in your Music Library. OrchPlay bookmarks contain information that works in parallel with the OrchPlay Music Library:

  • Playback cursor position, score page and Locator selection (starting-ending time and measure numbers)
  • Activated and deactivated sound of specific instruments as well as Mixer settings (mutes, solos, balance)
  • Colored score markings

With custom or OrchPlay-provided Bookmark Lists you may:

  • Quickly prepare lectures and presentations and organize your audio-visual material for Online classes
  • Instantaneously alternate between multiple selections of instruments; choose an instrument or build any instrumental combinations
  • Highlight the role of a specific instrument in a musical context by increasing its presence
  • Compare the musical interpretation of the same passage from different recording

Next to the Bookmark icon you will find the Embedded Documents. The OrchPlay Music Library always provides a study score in PDF format. Teachers have access to different score versions with full or selective orchestral family reductions and piano versions. The page layout enables students to write directly onto the score. PDF scores filenames have suffixes combinations that indicate their layout:

  • ORCH = Orchestra score with blank staves for orchestral families reduction or piano reduction assignments [Pro and Teacher]
  • REDUC = Orchestral families reductions for orchestration or piano reduction assignments [Teacher only]
  • Piano = Piano version for orchestration assignments [Teacher only]

Pro/students may listen to the orchestral families reductions and piano versions. Only Teachers have the written solutions as scores.

After clicking Download Bookmark List OrchPlay will offer the possibility to automatically download the OrchPlay content for that list.
Since OrchPlay multichannel files are large the process can take up to multiple hours. It can be interrupted and resumed at any time.

36 recordings from 5 composers are referred to in this bookmark list

With the Classical period came the new notion that emotions were not steady states, but were constantly changing and sometimes contradictory responses to one's experiences and thoughts, made obsolete the Baroque approach of conveying a single feeling in a movement or section.
Instead, composers began to introduce contrasting moods in the various parts of a movement or even within the themes themselves. The possibilities for contrasts were heightened by the nature of the new music, with its many short phrases and its dependence on differences in the material to articulate the form.

Burkholder, Grout, Palisca. 2009. A History of Western Music, Eight Edition. p.482

This bookmark list contains examples of string sections taken from classical masterpieces of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven.

Score annotations are provided for all the bookmarks included with the exception when they seemed unnecessary (tutti sections, only selected group playing, etc).

During the Industrial Revolution, string instruments were altered to create a bigger, more dramatic tone, with greater string tension, a higher bridge, and a tilted fingerboard. Fingerboards were lengthened to allow for higher notes. The modern bow, devised François Tourte around 1785, had a wider, uniform band of bowhair kept taunt with concave curvature of the wood and a screw tightening mechanism, which game more control and a larger sound.
