Just for the record, here's a source: Henry Mancini recommended this practice in his book "Sounds and Scores" from 1973 where he describes his arranging and orchestration techniques for Hollywood orchestras in the 60s/70s:

There is no a direct solution to "cut" the slur in Finale, but there are workarounds. 1. Enter with two slurs, measure attached, than fine tune them to look like they are a single one, but cut. 2. Enter a normal slur with preparation to be "cut". Than when finished, save it as PDF, than open that p...
I agree, but I'm trying to avoid using multiple mixed languages in the score. So my choices are Italian (all of the tempos and tempo changes), or French (the title pages, movement list, instrument names). I suppose French would work okay. Translated literally, it would be "sul segno". If you like i...

Hello, when playing in musical shows here in Germany, we usually get the sheet music from the US or UK publisher, which means that the music is written with 4 measures per staff. I vaguely remember that someone called that the "Broadway layout", maybe it was in one of the equally meaningful and ente...
I find it merely strange that many people obviously have confidence in a new product based on the single fact that it is new. The argument that other programs contain "20-year-old-code" seems to gain popularity. It seems obvious to me that Finale might be the target. Even if that is not the case, 20...
I don't know if this book has been translated into German. Indeed it has. When I studied at the Folkwang Musikhochschule at Essen, Germany, I took the course Notationskunde with Prof.Broszka where we worked a lot with the Apel book in german. There's a german edition dating from 1960, the preface c...
