Archaic transpositions. Provided by request. Though if the new clarinet in C becomes popular, then it would no longer be an archaic transposition. I've heard quite a few horn players tell me that they prefer parts in the archaic transpositions, and some even say they wouldn't mind if modern tonal composers likewise used archaic transpositions. Maybe Wagner was on to something after all. I haven't heard trumpeters say the same thing, but I have nonetheless provided trumpet in D parts for this piece.

And for high school orchestras. Tenor trombones written in bass clef. With this particular piece, the use of bass clef winds up being even more nonsensical than usual, especially for the first tenor trombone, which would've most likely have been an alto trombone in Salieri's day. At letter O, the practical range of the modern tenor trombone is altogether exceeded. On the other hand, Salieri certainly did not mean for a pretty chord at this point in the piece.
