Look how Brahms notates alternating notes between the pianist's hands in his second piano concerto! He doesn't even bother to show the half bar in the right hand once the pattern is established.

Brahms, a master of simplicity!

Re: Simple syncopation notation

Showing this as cross-staffed 16ths would give a non-legato impression. The only thing I see here interesting is M214. That measure is a copy of M212 except that there are additional whole notes :6 . As it is impossible to play without pedal, I believe that the pedal info is somehow missing in M212...

Re: Simple syncopation notation

Dear Brooks, Welcome to the forum. Your scoring in Dorico is very nice. About your question: while it is nothing theoretically wrong with it (and that notation definitely could be applied for two different instruments), I assume that a better way to notate it for pianist would be to have cross-staff...

M35 RH can be a dotted half rest.
I disagree with this. You should always be able to see the middle of the measure. A dotted half rest would obscure that.
Not always. It is perfectly correct that way. But if starting at beat 2, the rest it must be broken.

Re: Tremolo spacing?

It looks very good to my eyes.
Sometimes the beams cross the staff-lines, sometimes no.
M35 RH can be a dotted half rest. Also maybe to organise dynamics more clear.

David, as usually, makes a good looking score with many Finale defaults! That is not so easy.

This should definitely be added there:

Check that every fermata is present in every part.
Yes, that one is extremely important, often missed!

Re: A modern looking score in 2018?

My final thought: changing the fonts does not result in getting more contemporary outlook of a score. It can be just different. The notation is written symbolic language, thus small omissions can have a great impact on the language. As a written language the notation describes sound or music, and so...

Re: A modern looking score in 2018?

Now, if we take these scores away to a reasonable distance, the first example is much more readable than the second one. Simply said, the perception and the size is much more efficient with the stylised serif; one that ignore this fact is making just more trouble in engraving. One could say that sa...
