Re: Not strictly engraving, but rather notation question

thank-you Harpsichordmaker. I think the accel. in the score has the dot, it may have been a mistype on my part here in the post.

I'm glad to know that the indication for the new tempo is actually correct Italian.

Re: Not strictly engraving, but rather notation question

Molto rubato :4 = ca. 48 accel. Tempo giusto :4 = 76 that's very close to what I ended up doing. I included "più mosso" before the tempo giusto. because of the nature of the music (just looking at the notes one wouldn't automatically assume that there is a sudden change in the tempo, or that the ac...

Re: Not strictly engraving, but rather notation question

the issue here is that from the start of the accel passage at measure 162, there is no real "battuta", it's quite free. as long as it gradually speeds up. but then, when it hits measure 166, the tempo is now faster, but more importantly, it is no longer "free" but in strict tempo at this new tempo. ...

Not strictly engraving, but rather notation question

I am having difficulty finding the right words for a tempo change in one of my latest scores. context: cadenza-like passage, between the soloist and a flute solo. the material is written so that it is completely rubato/free, with each instrument free to enter at or after the end of the other's phras...

slurs on double-stemmed consolidated instruments

weird title, had trouble putting it into words briefly, probably more because I'm not sure of which terminology to use. anyway, here goes: two instruments share a staff in and orchestral score. their material is almost entirely rhythmically the same, so they share stems through most of the passage i...

I've launched a site, https://Scorico.net, dedicated to the sharing of Dorico-related resources... mostly scores, but other materials as well.

Re: Percussion (susp. cymbal) notation question

thanks.

one would think, considering the sheer quantity of different symbols they've invented for percussion notation, that there would be one for this type of situation!

Percussion (susp. cymbal) notation question

I have not written very much for percussion, other than very standard notation for the last 40 years. But I find myself with an effect that I haven't used before (which I am MORE than certain is absolutely standard.. it's just foreign to me): I require after a short roll on a suspended cymbal for th...

Re: "ad lib"bowing

the desired effect is of completely free bow changes, sort of like crowd noises? It's not a tremolo, nor is it a long sustained note with invisible bow changes. I ended up putting a footnote in the score/parts. I was able to squeeze just enough room out of the bottom of each part's last page, and th...
