Re: Buying a plate

Yes, their system us confusing in either case. I prefer the style that places such bar numbers at the beginning of the first complete measure in the system.

Re: Buying a plate

Ooh: also there's a mistake! The first system is a massive cadenza in one bar, numbered 63, which has no barline at the end, and the next system starts with (64) in brackets. It ought to be (63), as the continuation of the cadenza. Otherwise, we're off by one when we get to the next bar number. I d...

Re: From Plate to Page with Dorico

Thank you very much, Schonbergian! I am glad that you saw such a quick result. The first time I tried it, I was stunned by the difference in such a short time. Here's another one you might try. It is so "simple" that it never occurs to pianists. Yet it is the most basic of all piano exerci...

Re: Henle Rach 3

This "spacious" score that adds 32 to pages (=16 more page turns) seems to be aimed at advanced players who are not good readers, since good readers prefer more compression in a score like this to be able to take in more music at a glance and avoid as many page turns as possible. The resul...

Re: From Plate to Page with Dorico

You are very welcome, benwiggy. And congrats on your new piano! A piece of advice about improving your keyboard skills: if your have the patience, the biggest bang for your buck would be to play all the three and four note major and minor chords (all inversions and possible fingerings) chromatically...

Re: From Plate to Page with Dorico

A really beautiful job, benwiggy, and a great illustration of Dorico's capabilities. A few things about your version: 1. Henle uses a smaller size fingering for grace notes, which is very common. (I don't, however, because the small numbers can be hard to read.) 2. Dorico has trouble with the length...

Re: simile and sempre

I think it depends on the situation. If you feel that there is a danger of misunderstanding, write it out. If not, don't.

In the really old days, they didn't even use simile and sempre, but implied it. Then simile and sempre became necessary. Now...

They're out of stock. They must be a big seller at Walmart. :) The example given is the first page of Chopin's Waltz op. 64 no. 2 in C# minor.

Re: Augmentation dots

I think that it may be a matter of taste, since I have seen this done both ways.

But I would move them in. Dorico does this by default. And I would bring all the ties to the noteheads, threading them through and under the augmentation dots.
