The slurs are the giveaway. The note spacing is too good (not saying much) to be Sibelius, I can't imagine them using MuseScore, and it's definitely not LilyPond.
I think all programs can be forced to listen to a good editor/engraver. I have managed to get quite good results with MuseScore. But I guess it is no-no for Bärenreiter.
I believe this is Finale.
And yes, slurs are definitely not good. Reminds me of Sibelius (default).

I agree that MuseScore has basically surpassed Finale's default output. My comment was more that Baerenreiter would probably balk at using an open-source program and go with something commercial.

Here are two slur examples from the Baerenreiter op. 54.

White space killers, and they don't mesh with the beams. Has the engraver never seen well-engraved music of the past? Or is the engraver in a hurry? Is there no one left at Baerenreiter who has an eye for music engraving? Have plate engravers ever been consulted by designers of software? Many questions.
