Re: Notesizes in Strauss Don Quixote (Jos. Aibl Verlag / UE)

Recently, I have found it necessary to reduce note size slightly for cramped ledger line notes so the ledger lines don't touch, since Finale doesn't allow for different ledger line lengths in the same document. I believe Robert Patterson has a plug-in (possibly only in a beta version) that does exa...

Re: Vocal score

You are assuming the excerpt is in C major. It is not, but rather is not in any key, therefore the clarinet KS is correct.

Are you saying that six against four is impossible? Better tell Brahms...

If they were, they probably would not be able to admit that to you, having certainly signed an Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA).

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

I am making the switch, although some clients still prefer Sibelius or Finale. Just did a large job for National Symphony and used it for the Harp parts, which would have been a pain in either Finale or Sibelius but were easy in Dorico. Still not comfortable with note entry. I really should remap th...

Re: Binding of scores (loose sheets)

The problem with both these methods is that the music will not lay flat.

For large PDF scores I have used a three hole punch and then put the sheets in a 3 ring binder. However, if I was going to perform from this, I would most likely get it coil bound - it's not that expensive.

Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

Thank you for correcting me on Mexico. Do you hear a lot about enforcement down there?

I was employed with a Mexican orchestra some years ago. I would say most definitely *not*. Many times we performed from illegal photocopies.

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.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

When using the new divisi feature, Dorico cannot add sub-brackets to, say, a divided Violin 1 section. Daniel Spreadbury has acknowledged this to me (in a comment on the Scoring Notes blog).

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

This really looks very good to me.

When Dorico allows for more flexibility with brackets and sub-brackets, it will also become my first choice.
