Re: An Intriguing Measure in Beethoven’s op. 101

What are your thoughts on those in light of Schenker's personal observations, John, and (additionally for me) the initial gesture in the first movement? Is its notation just designed to show the three registers used, or would Beethoven have seriously intended for both the low note and the chord to b...

Re: Notation program...

I much prefer the slur in that situation as well, John.

Re: Lost Notation 8

In Canada, editions of PD works are also PD, with only brand-new editions like forewords and fingering considered copyrightable.

Re: Lost Notation 8

John, I think your edition might be the one that can finally surpass Schenker's, and I eagerly await its publication. I already recommend your Inventions & Sinfonias edition to all of my students.

Re: Working during Covid-19 lockdown

I echo David and John's wishes as well, and hope that nobody else here falls victim to this virus. I also echo David's observations about a lack of creative impulse during these times. Practicing has been productive, but without Bernstein's "not quite enough time", I'm not pushed to accomplish anyth...

Re: Note values in Schumann

I do like the larger lyric size of the Breitkopf edition. Small text is much harder to read at a glance for me than small music.

Re: Range and Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas

Vaughan, so you wouldn't even go so far as to add the missing octaves in Op. 10/3?

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Looks like a computer engraving default (perhaps because it's easier to keep the slurs further away and avoid collisions). LilyPond doesn't do it, and I haven't seen it in any well-engraved music of the past. Given the actual purpose of a slur being to connect notes, I see no reason not to place it ...

Re: Effect of Notation process on engraving rules

Also, digital tools seem to have been created by those programmers not particularly familiar with the reasoning behind many traditional engraving practices, which were then thrown out without any real justification. (See: Good contrast between elements, ottava lines, optical boldness of differently ...
