#beginquote# This is a very valid question, that I find comes up often, when teaching violin and viola students, who have not been exposed to very much music theory. In general the choice of enharmonic spellings, are directly due to the "function" of the specific pitch. Often, a chromatic alteration, is directly taking place as a functional tone...in a sense being the integral pitch for a modulation. In addition, several surrounding tones...may have the integrity of their "spelling", and function, remain, intact... due to the non harmonic tones being written, in relationship to standard voice leading, and analysis. I would suggest studying Music Theory. There are many helpful sites on here. I can suggest specific books. One "bible" of music theory is by Walter Piston. #endquote#
