Hi everyone, I'm a composer interested in the contemporary techniques of this wonderful instrument. But I have some questions about the fingering and the resulting notes, so I want to ask you.
If I press the d# trill key (and hold it) while playing another note (let's suppose the G# above the staff), what will happen? I will hear the D# or the G#? In general, if I press a trill key while playing other notes (above or below the C#4) will I hear the note of the key or not?
Then, these trill keys produce notes at a single fixed pitch or can you change it by overblowing? For instance, the D# will ALWAYS produce the D#4?
Finally, I heard a flutist who said that a flute produce a C# without pressing keys (its fundamental tone). So, why on the fingering charts the C# is produced by pressing Eb key with the fourth finger of the right hand?
Thanky you very much for your help!
