Re: Enharmonic symbol

Having browsed through the thread, I find that one solution is missing. The simplest, and least harmful IMO.

The equal sign has been suggested already, and really says it all. The parenthesis is important, I think, to show that it's just a reminder, not a new information.

Re: Enharmonic symbol

I've decided to add a cautionary accidental to the first note, which should be sufficient help, without muddying the waters too much. The placement of the cautionary accidental after the "problematic" note (in David's example F#) seems more logical than before it. The second alternative i...

Re: Enharmonic symbol

IMO any supplementary explanation will just obscure the simple fact that the same note is spelled both as D flat and as C sharp. What's the problem?

Re: What a difference a line makes!

Ideally, I would have put a slur over the "For" as well, but I'd still value the line there. I did some work for a publisher recently who insisted that there was always a tiny bit of a line on any melisma, unless it was really impossible. I agree, on both points. Personally I don't find t...

Better to expand the usual I-II, III-IV pattern into I-II, III, IV on three staves, than to introduce a new pattern of I-II-IV, III.

Re: Tuplet values

Another question about your first example. Now and then I get older manuscripts to work with, where composers obviously use slurs instead of brackets for tuplets, in the old way. Sometimes they are broken, sometimes not. When not, the slurs are not always that obvious: are they just "tuplet slu...

Re: Tuplet values

Doesn't it look more like a badly placed 2? (Left bottom "corner".)
Badly placed or perhaps a little too small.

Not to mention Schubert. Most likely he'd written 10 symphonies if he'd had that.

Re: string quad-stop question

I can't let go of the question of long or short chord breakings. As I understand it, OCTO, you prefer Szeryng's smooth and almost simultaneous chords, but I'd like your opinion about what's often heard in Bach performances. Take fx. this beginning of the first solo violin sonata by Bach: Bach multi-...

Re: string quad-stop question

I think the question how to notate the difference between a rather fast, unaccented beginning of a broken four-stop on a string instrument, and a more accentuated one, remains unanswered. John's comparison, interesting as it is, doesn't say much about string notation. While four-stops, notated as ch...
