Re: The Critical Editing of Music : History, Method, and Practice

Mark, maybe your turn to write your own book on history of music notation? :)
I see the potential, but it is a very extensive task, indeed.
John has started numerous very interesting topics on notation in the historical editions, mostly on piano music. You can read it as an inspiration.

Friends, what do you think about having a forum category for uploading documents (mostly PDF) that are worth to host/share/preserve?
Such as older books on notation, or your own theoretical papers etc.?

Re: The Critical Editing of Music : History, Method, and Practice

I think that the current, contemporary notation is what is distilled for last 400 years, thus our notation today represents the historical development, and the rules today are the most of the rules accumulated for centuries. Therefore perhaps Williams is enough good so far to consider it to be "hist...

Re: Other comments on notation

but Music Engraving S***posting. So, go and participate at your own risk XD Yes, I remember it now I saw it. I would emphasize the word "risk". A lot of absurd and chatter/gossip posting, time consuming. The users post others engraving attempts and make fool of it; some users make with purpose a "b...

Re: Other comments on notation

I can't open the link, I don't have Facebook anymore. What is that group about?
I know there is a Facebook group called Music Engraving Tips, but mostly people "fight" there (never ending arguing), and you get some advices rather not to comment.

Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

Anyone interested in sharing the technique for having the tie not pass through the notehead? Is there a plug-in involved? (In Finale) 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 the...

Re: When should interpretation should become?

I don't see exactly why the dotted 8 would be performed shorter, since there is no indication for that. On the other hand, writing the second way (interpretation) makes another layer of probability - that it could be played even shorter than one eight. My final comment is that the interpretation-not...

Re: Finale or Sibelius

Right Laurence, so it is. I'v just started with Sib on a smaller-size project (chamber opera), where no particular extended technique is used. It works good so far. It works more quick for what I do now.
Yet I am missing some features of "total control" what is found within Finale.
