Re: Funny notations 😁

You are definitely on to something there, OCTO! I just fear that the multimeasure thing could be a bit risky too: :n4 :n9 🍺...

Re: Funny notations 😁

Useful symbols in parts like this: 🚾 (short rest), or ☕ (shortish rest), or 🍺 (not so short rest), or 🛌 (long rest).

Re: Errors in Janacek?

Or, the X with bracket could refer to a footnote somewhere in the score, or to a comment in a preface?

Re: Errors in Janacek?

It would be interesting to know who made this change for the first time. The composer himself, or a conductor in contact with Janacek?
