Re: Notating to encourage rubato.

A few accel.'s and rit's., feathered beaming, small notes, and/or more complex tuplets would help the player know more clearly what you want. Wonderful! Very good ideas.

Re: Notating to encourage rubato.

Re: Triplets in 6/8

Re: "Library" vs "Performance" editions

You don't mean "study score" or "pocket score" to say "taschenpartitur"?

Re: Final Music Prep Checklist

Thanks.
He should list this forum as well!

Re: What do you think?

Interesting. It should be investigated if Mendelssohn indeed had influence in the first edition's print or not.

Re: MuseScore acquired by Ultimate Guitar

As I understand now, MuseScore.org notation is a community driven, but it was at the same time inside of a privately registered company.

Re: MuseScore acquired by Ultimate Guitar

Acquired from whom, for what?

All these "bug reports, coding, to contribute community" seems to me now as false.
A sad story.
