Other comments on notation

This web site is impressive for the care and high quality with which its contributors notate music. Sometimes when we strive this hard, a little comic relief is in order. Here's another notation site, with plenty of illustrations, that may offer this: https://www.facebook.com/groups/165495723984913/...

Re: So what is generally considered the best all-around Beethoven piano sonatas edition?

I remember an enlightening conversation I had with my theory professor. I asked him about a detail in one of the sonatas; he replied that he'd look at it, since he didn't know that sonata well, since he didn't play it -- because his wife did. As academics and practicing musicians they had split the ...

Re: Most popular engraving programs?

I think you're right -- I've gotten the idea that Encore is popular in South America, especially Brazil. My interest is more in total numbers. I don't know where we could get those.

Re: SCORE Music Publishing System VS. Graphire Music Press

You're welcome, George. A couple of thoughts: when I got the program it came with a Windows PDF manual. I'm on a Mac and asked Ernie; he promptly sent a Mac manual. It might have something about score setup, or the Yahoo group could. Otherwise, I'd just make a few templates. If that's the way to do ...
