Re: Notating Alternate Sections

In the score, I would lay out each of the B sections one after the other, carefully marked to start at the beginning of a left page and end on a right page. Then the conductor can clip pages together to avoid the non-played section. You mean the librarian, of course! :) To the OP: You didn't specif...

Ugly slurs

Check out this excerpt from John Adams' Hallelujah Junction, most likely engraved with SCORE.

Re: Does anyone know what Strauss intended?
