Re: divisi to non-divisi notation in strings

I had recently the similar case and yes, tutti unis. is perfectly clear to understand. Tutti, because they all play now; Unis, because they are now united and not divided into play/rest division. would either of you think that the bar with only inside desks having a whole note rest for the outside d...

Re: Beethoven Brainteaser 3

Diabelli Variations are one of the most contemporary pieces ever written for the piano. In a recent chat with the Finnish pianist Joonas Ahonen, who played Diabelli together with some Boulez, Ligeti and Stockhausen, he agreed completely.

Re: PPP

From https://homes.luddy.indiana.edu/donbyrd/CMNExtremes.htm Rastall (1982) contains a fairly extensive discussion of early uses of dynamic markings. In the items below, no distinction is made between words and their abbreviations, e.g., between f and forte. Earliest use of any dynamic marking: Vinc...
