Re: SCORE?

If I remember correctly, the person who engraved the SCORE version initiated this contest, confident that SCORE would edge out all competitors.

When it appeared that was not going to be the case, he quickly cancelled the contest.

Re: Mastering Rachmaninoff

Since this is an international discussion board, I would be careful discussing copyright issues. In some countries (like Canada, where IMSLP is based) it is a simple life + 50 years. The US has a labyrinthine and complicated law, brought to you by the Disney Company (in the form of pay-offs to membe...

Re: On Beaming

I believe Petroushka 3 movements is in public domain since it was originally published before 1923. If the Boosey is truly a reprint and not a revised version, it too is PD.

Re: [BRAVURA] Organizing the font?

It's possible. I do it all the time.

There is also a font called Norfolk which is a version of Bravura optimized for Sibelius. You might have more luck with that if you want it for your default music font.

Re: [BRAVURA] What does this represent?

I've been a professional clarinetist for more than 40 years and have never seen this clef. Anyway :f 9 would be an incorrect transposition for bass clarinet, since it is transposed a major ninth higher than written (usually, but let's not open *that* can of worms).

Re: Espressivo font

About the peddling – long, very long ago I stopped sending my critics to some composers that I work with. Everyone knows why and must take its own responsibility
Very wise advice. I wish I had taken it about 20 years ago!

Re: Crumb's unique rhythms

Keep in mind that Crumb worked as a copyist for quite a while. His autography is beautiful - suitable for framing.

The music isn't bad, either...

Re: Pencils for music

I find that on average in each box of 12 Staedtler Tradition 3B there are 2 individual pencils whose leads keep breaking when being sharpened. As soon as this happens for a third time with any individual pencil, I bin it. The others in the same box continue to sharpen without any problem. Sort of h...

Re: How to make an orchestral performance part from loose sheets of paper.

There is a video tab leading to more videos, although I don't think he has one addressing your particular issue. However, there are countless videos on bookbinding that should lead you to that information.
