Re: A modern looking score in 2018?

I think there were two separate questions here: the purely aesthetic design of the items on the page, and the underlying layout. Regarding the former, this presents some difficulty, as many "modern design elements" (razor-thin line weights and edges, sharp angles, varying soft colours) are simply in...

New classic typeface

I was browsing MTF's website and found this gem that wasn't there last time I checked: https://www.musictypefoundry.com/product/roman-ionic

It looks excellent for music use and similar to that used by at least Durand in the past.

Is that Knut's music typeface & engraving?

Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

The barlines give it away as LP. I'm intrigued by the clef, though - it looks better than the default by miles but still looks good with the rest of the default font.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

For what you do, it looks that it would suit you well. Why not, if you work alone in your edition. Also, your 'example' score in Dorico looks more like "printed" - in a positive meaning. The thing I hear often about Dorico is that it "looks" pleasant. I wonder why? My guessing is that it looks more...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I still feel like the "Sibelius"-style slurs and ties curve too much near the ends. LP has the same issue by default, albeit a bit less pronounced.

Dorico Pro 2 released

https://www.dorico.com/new-in-2/

Thoughts?

Still lacks a few of the features I'd want from LP, and seems to still have trouble with the kind of deep customizability that Finale and LP allow, but I don't have first-hand experience with it.

Re: HB Music Engraver

I've seen this used on ancient computer scores from the 90s. I think most users had to write in the lyrics by hand with it.

Definitely not a fan of the output.

Re: "Library" vs "Performance" editions

Isn't this included in the Henle app to some extent, where you can select different bowings and fingerings on the fly to be overlaid on a base Urtext score?

Re: When should interpretation should become?

I have always understood the notes of a slurred group in instrumental music to be both connected to each other and also shown to be separate in some way from the surrounding notes. This is the only way in which the grouping can be shown. The degree and means of separation depends totally on the sit...

Re: "Instructional" editions

This is why I like the Schenker edition of the Beethoven sonatas so much - it's as close as one can get the composer's intentions and it still manages to be helpful in almost every way without being intrusive.
