Triple flats in Moussgorsky's Gnome
on: January 24, 2007, 10:08:09 PM
I'm working on Pictures at an Exhibition: the Gnome, and came across this symbol.



I'm confused by the 3rd note: the E with two flats in front of it, and then a third flat in the key signature.  On the piano the Ebb should be the equivalent of D natural, right? But with the flat in the Key Signature should it be the equivalent of D flat?

Thanks.

No, It's just a double flat, equal to a D. The key signature doesn't come into play here.

No, an E# in Eb minor is an F naturel, again, the key signature doesn't affect anything here, but good thinking
