Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

So, even though you own a copy of the work, to download a copy scanned from a website that is not private storage of your materials means that you are effectively downloading an illegal copy of that work. Someone else scanned that work from their own copy and provided a means for you to download it...

Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

You must own the work and make the copy yourself, so long as you do not distribute it. If I understand you correctly, DatOrganistTho, instead of scanning some copyrighted sheet music that I own so that I can have access to it on a computer, I can legally download it here in the USA from IMSLP even ...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

With Dorico 2, I started a project that I've always to try, but now I feel comfortable doing it in a notation program. It took me roughly 45 minutes to input all of the information here. There have been no edits to layout, flow, collisions, spelling, etc. There are a few things that are wonky that I...

Re: Academic Research on Notation

Not so much the history of western notation but rather the history of typesetting standards. Does that make sense? "The great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from." ;) Ted Ross's book, coupled with House Style Guides from various publishing houses, would be a good start. W...

Re: Academic Research on Notation

In addition to the above mentioned books, you may find "The Printed Note: 500 Years of Music Printing and Engraving" by A. Beverly Barksdale useful too. It was originally printed in 1957 as a "textbook-catalog" to accompany an exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art. (I have the 1981 reprint.) While...

Re: Academic Research on Notation

What sort of research exactly? Do you mean the History of notation? Or computer representation of notation? Or something else? There is a huge wealth of research into historical forms and the development of Western notation (and I dare say other types). I'd be surprised if you couldn't find a consi...

Academic Research on Notation

Has there been any academic research regarding music notation to this date that anyone knows of? I'm looking into a few sources, but I would like to know if any of you might know of something tucked away somewhere.

Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

You must own the work and make the copy yourself, so long as you do not distribute it. Grabbing it off of someplace else if it is not your own is technically illegal (if you live in the USA).

Re: Please enlighten me on the meaning of...

Nicholas, G, if that is Dorico, can the S-shaped slur be made to look more like the original, or maybe even better? (Sorry, not NicholasG, again ) Here's the Debussy snippet in Dorico with a 2-segment S-shaped slur (all slurs have been manually adjusted, but with better starting settings than the d...

Re: Lyric Extenders on Long Vowels

I would have expected Lilypond to handle extensions correctly by default. If you're looking for a good book of music engraving rules, I can recommend Elaine Gould's "Behind bars", from Faber Music. LilyPond isn't automated, but that's okay. I'm aware of the rules right now, and it wasn't LilyPond's...
