Re: Position of objects

I’d say they are probably fine as is, but it might look better if they appear centered over their respective notes. You mean the beats? Hm, that could be improved indeed. Ideally, shouldn't the :forte and the staccatissimo instruction be closer to the notes than the beat symbols? Maybe that's not p...

Is this position of objects (beat-symbols) good to you?

Re: Single note of 5/4

Here is another solution of Crumb. Composers seem to suffer from this note-value. There is undoubtedly a logic to that notation, but unfortunately the usual more complicated way of notating it is what musicians have become used to reading almost by instinct. Anything new has to be questioned and le...

I agree, but MuseScore isn’t really better. I’m a bit surprised that only Sibelius and LilyPond do optical spacing correctly here …
Yes, but in my opinion Sibelius has its own spacing issue. To much space for grace notes, and also very strangely main notes. Just, I don't get it.

Optical spacing

When I look at this example, I feel that the second grace note is to much close to the main note.
Interestingly, the spacing (stem-to-stem) is correct, yet I can't remove my feeling that the spacing is improper.
How do you look at it?

This is done in Finale.

Piano octaving

What is better notation to use, single or double?
It is a very long phrase, perhaps two pages like continues...
