My neighbour Stephen Hough is king of the hood this morning. He has got to the bottom of an exposed flute note that has bothered him every time he plays the Tchaik first piano concerto. It’s at the opening of the second movement and it’s an F in all printed editions.
Only in the composer’s original version, which Stephen has tracked down, it’s a B-flat. Result!
