Re: Funny notations 😁

I've seen it before, Anders. I don't think it is an actual published revision, but some personal art work given as a gift. I found the following interesting article about it and Mendelssohn's art work: https://mtosmt.org/issues/mto.10.16.3/mto.10.16.3.walden.html Yes, I have restricted myself to foo...

Re: Problems with posting and reply

Now I am noticing something quite strange. If I bring up notat.io, at first, I am not logged in. But if I select any category on the home page, go to that page, then go back to the Home page, I am logged in!

So that is an improvement. I don't have to log in each time.

Re: Different notations - Bach - Cello

That's right. As are as I can tell, such slurs only became standard in the later 19th century. They are scarce* in earlier music. The earlier composers avoided extraneous markings. The attitude seems to have been that since all such ornaments were played legato, there was no need to put in slurs. I ...

Re: Notation program...

What a nice compliment, Den. Thank you very much! When I told my wife what I had written about the developers, she agreed wholeheartedly and said that in her many years as a systems designer, she had seen this phenomenon repeatedly. Software engineers are lone, problem-solving wolves who want to pro...

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

Regarding the A# in the Hammerklavier, I may post a thread on that. In short, Schenker had no doubt whatsoever that it was a mistake and that an A natural was the intended note. To me, the evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of the A natural. Much of the evidence is presented in an excellent article...

Re: Different notations - Bach - Cello

That looks very good, Den. Here is the Wiener Urtext which is even more authentic. Haydn Sonata Wiener Urtext.jpeg I was very suspicious of the double slur in m. 3 in the Paesler and that indeed is not authentic. I am just as suspicious of the slurs covering the small notes in the Wiener Urtext. The...

Beethoven is ingenious in every way. I would give a lot to be able meet that guy!
Me too! The first thing I'd ask him would be: "Now about that A sharp and those metronome indications in the Hammerklavier Sonata..."

Re: Different notations - Bach - Cello

Den, I know you were just experimenting with the curved beams for fun, but actually, I don't think that the curved Bach beams are necessary in an authentic edition. If you look at the pieces that Bach published himself, like the Art of Fugue and the 6 keyboard Partitas you will see straight beams. T...

Re: Key signature and staff size

Aha! Den, could you post what Graphire does with C# major and two treble clefs?
