My apologies, I thought it would capture as a PDF. I'll try and PM you the score!

Looks like Finale to me. There are a lot of things that indicate so (treble/bass cords, etc.), but the system brackets and grand staff brace is a dead giveaway.

Cheers! I did zoom right into the clefs and braces of this score and also of a score that I knew was engraved in Finale, and they seemed pretty much identical! The publisher for this one is Schott, I've noticed that some of their older scores were typeset in Finale, but some of their newer ones or smaller chamber things were done in Sibelius. Do any publishers still use programs like SCORE?

I've always wondered the same thing. I know Henle does, but not sure about others. I've seen scores from Bärenreiter that have the SCORE appearance, but I believe they just use a similar music typeface. I could be wrong, though.

Thank you for the heads-up! I'll drop him a line :)

Wish I could’ve seen this earlier and shown off how I recognized that the music font is clearly Maestro, and the curly braces on the Harp are definitely Finale. You guys are great.

Schott used SCORE plenty years ago (they promoted it and gave it to their external engravers).
They moved to finale being concerned about the stalled development of score.
They moved to Sibelius driven crazy by incompatibilities between finale versions.
But the new Mahler edition is done in the old Score, because that's the one, they are trusting in, not the followers.

Alright folks, another one for you sharp-eyed engravers.

Because this was engraved in c.1998 by Schott, am I right, due to the previous comments, to presume this is a Finale job again?

Cheers!
