Re: Placing of a clef change.

Thank you very much, David. I'm glad it helped. I guess the common way of handling clef changes that you mentioned in the OP applies in this case as well. Maybe that is why Gould doesn't mention it.

Re: Placing of a clef change.

To me it would look more natural to have the clef change immediately after the To Glockenspiel rather than before it, since the player had been playing in the percussion clef until that point. And a case could be made for placing the clef even closer to the Glock. entrance to reinforce the change vi...

Re: dots and triplets

A few of the phrases written as straight eights seem best that way, others in dotted rhythm are best that way, but others in even eighths seem highly questionable and better dotted. I think the difference between the two rhythms is refreshing and should be preserved wherever it seems to enhance the ...

Re: dots and triplets

Thanks again, Ben. I found it online at IMSLP. The musical context confirms that the triplet signs were accidentally omitted. The four-note roulade is a replacement of the three-note roulade motive that starts the piece and appears immediately before the appearance of the the triplet version (encirc...

Re: dots and triplets

It's a great question to ask. I agree with tisimst that they probably should all be triplets. But context can be everything. What is the piece? Is there an autographs available? etc. There needs to be musical justification for the two roulades starting at different divisions of the beat so that the ...

Nota Bene part two

Note: To understand Beethoven’s decision in m. 196 of the first movement of his Sonata op. 90 requires dealing with the movement as a whole.

I downloaded all 1726 pages of it. It's encyclopdedic. There is little information about it online, but WWII may have stopped it.

Re: Center line stemming

John, you preferred the bass staff of C because of the continuation of beaming direction, right? I'm assuming you wouldn't want that center line beaming if the other tuplet had another stem direction like this. This one looks even more odd to me: Stemming by the phrase depends on context and the am...
