comment Pronunciation of musical notes
"G-iß" und "G-eß" hat als Beispiel für Aussprache auch keinen Sinn...? Wieso? G-dur und G-moll (oder g-dur und g-moll) werden so geschrieben und ohne Probleme ausgesprochen.

That answer has been altered. In its present form I agree that it answers my question – in the first sentence, in fact.

For instance, I know that the German names of English G sharp and G flat are, respectively, 'Gis' and 'Ges'. But is Gis in German pronounced as 'Giß' (one syllable) or 'G-iß' (two syllables)? Similarly, is Ges pronounced as 'Geß' or 'G-eß'?

Again I'm sorry, but I don't think anyone has read my question. I'm not asking what the notes are called – I know that. I'm only asking how the German names are pronounced.

I'm sorry but that doesn't really answer the question. First of all when you say "spelled" I suppose you mean "pronounced" (Ges is not spelled like "guess"). Then "…the 'k' spelled as soft as in guess...like 'giss'" – that doesn't mean anything, I'm afraid. There is no 'k' in 'guess', and if you mean the 'g', it's hard, not soft. But thank you for trying.

comment 'Dass' since the spelling reform
Thanks for the answer. According to the principle you stated, we would write not only "Spaß" and "dass", as quoted by elssar, but also "Straße" and "Klasse". So the following vowel makes no difference, and in these cases the reform has not actually changed anything. Is this correct?
