    Hello!

    Just want to reassure myself in making the right call....

    In Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 2 there are roll slash discrepancies that I would appreciate help clarifying.


    Mvt. 1 - Because of the tempo, I am going to assume that all rolls, regardless of the number of slashes through the stem, are just that...rolls.  Not 16th notes.  Correct?



    Mvt. 4 - Same issue, with exception to the 4 measures between rehearsal letters C and D that has a slash on an 8th note and the 2 slashes on the quarter (these WOULD indicate 16th notes).  Also, in the Presto section these are all rolls, right?  NOT 8th notes??

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks!
    Kim
