Re: Autograph of Scriabin's Sonata no. 7

At this point, I've always wondered what EXACTLY is the purpose of the parenthesis. I mean, in a certain sense, it is semantically complex... it draws attention to the fact that this bit of information is parenthetical - not necessary to the expression itself - but paradoxically it expresses somethi...

Re: Florian's Nepomuk - and reimagining a Durand score

This is great work, Ben! I noticed that the "boldness" of the pngs in the documentation on GitHub was bolder... is that a new version of Sebastian or is it an artifact of the png raster?

MTF Gone?

I was sad to see this banner: https://www.musictypefoundry.com/font-services

It looks like things aren't being sold anymore. I hope Abraham is doing okay.

Re: MEZZO & MEZZA my new SMuFL fonts

Very nice! What is the "No Glyph" thing? How many symbols are there? I'm seriously considering picking this one up... but you drive a hard bargain! noglyph.PNG No Glyph was actually just something Dorico displayed it, actually there is non accent no symbol above that note. I think I corrected the P...

Re: SCORE 3.1 [Looking to Buy]

San Andreas Press has been defunct since at least 2014. There are still a couple of email addresses on that site: stephen@newnotations.com score@scoremus.com No idea if either are active, but could be worth following up if the OP is still interested. The website newnotations.com redirects to https:...

Re: SCORE 3.1 [Looking to Buy]

I've recently been in contact with a publishing company about doing some engraving work and the owner wants me to try and get SCORE 3.1, as that is what they prefer to use.

Re: Henle then and now

Something that I've noticed (as someone who's very sensitive to engraving styles and house styles) is that I get very tired of reading the modern Henle editions compare to the old. Spacing is strict and mathematical, and for some paradoxical reason it makes it harder to read. There's flow and charm ...
