Re: Font Attempt

Very nice, OCTO! I like the the size of the black notehead, although as Schoenbergian points out, it might be a bit too slight fore some, so it's worth experimenting a bit with the size and angle. Also, it looks to me as though you've tried to make it more 'authentic' by making a slight dent in bott...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

This looks very good to me as a first pass. It is in need of some adjustments, but I'm guessing you'll come back to that. Watch out, though, for the faulty kerning between the a and t in spicatissimo . I'm also not entirely sure what is meant by the eight-notes in parenthesis, as long as they aren't...

Re: Dorico 1.2 released

I have to say that in spite of certain limitations, the new implementation in 1.2 is incredibly impressive. Even if I can't use Dorico yet for more challenging engraving projects, the functionality is now thorough enough to handle simpler tasks with a minimal amount of effort. Dorico is still a youn...

Re: Notatio members meeting

It was a wonderful meeting indeed! I would strongly suggest organising such a meeting if you live fairly close to each other or are travelling. It's so nice and easy to become friends in real life when you have as much in common as most of us have. And please drop me a line if anyone of you are trav...

Re: Different types of accent in notation & performance

On the other hand, attacks and other such effects don't happen in a vacuum. They are used for specific musical reasons and this has a big effect on how they should be played. I think that pianists may be more accustomed to thinking of the general effect intended and interoperate markings in that li...

Re: Different types of accent in notation & performance

Thank you, John, for chiming in! I know now I've heard the piano fp effect in the past, but I had forgotten about it. I'll certainly make use of it when I get the chance! I was thinking about all the different ways one might strike the string on a piano and that the markings might be an illustration...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

I've seen big band composers write to, followed by the beat number, to instruct players to hold a note full length. This seems a bit cumbersome to me, but seems to work in a jazz context. Even more common in a jazz context is a simple notation such as "-3," "-4.5," etc. to mean "off on 3" or "off o...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Thanks for sharing this, Ere! I've seen big band composers write to, followed by the beat number, to instruct players to hold a note full length. This seems a bit cumbersome to me, but seems to work in a jazz context. In principal, I don't find your solution ideal either, for obvious reasons, but it...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Very interesting! I just listened to a variety of recordings of the passage, and with the exception of Wilhelm Kempff, all of them seemed to hold the long r.h. notes in the second and fourth measures by their full value. The shorter notes seemed to vary more, but, in my estimation, only due to varia...
