Re: Note values in Schumann

Irregular notations are fascinating, I think. Here's another Schumann example, from the Symphonic Etudes. This is what I found in my Peters edition when I was a young student: Schumann Symphonic Etudes Peters.PNG My then piano teacher claimed that Schumann wrote it differently, and incorrectly, like...

Re: Note values in Schumann

John, maybe both our explanations are equally plausible. In the rather common notation of your Abegg example it would seem quite obvious that the quarters are meant as quarters, possibly less so in "Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen" (because of the unusual rhythmic placement of the quarters). That Schuma...

Re: Note values in Schumann

Then, if we look on it that precisely, there would have been a sixteenth rest after the quarter. I'm sorry, but I don't buy that explanation.

Re: Note values in Schumann

As for Schumann's rhythmic notation, I guess it's the result of both poetic and practical deliberations. So, one aspect may be that the crotchets in the original are meant to express single, 'poetically long' notes. The other aspect is that a rhythmically correct notation, as below, would look consi...

Re: Note values in Schumann

Slurs intersecting note stems do not disturb me, as slurs normally intersect other objects, staff and bar lines for example. Of course the slurs avoiding the stems in the examples above do not disturb me either. Here are the first two systems in an older Peters edition. It would have looked even bet...

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Thanks benwiggy. At least Dorico has payed attention to the issue. It still needs some adjustment though.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Well, perhaps I should have said rather happy, not quite happy. What really annoys me with Finale's slurs is this default behaviour: Finale slurs and stem direction shift.PNG How does Dorico do this, per default? I would be surprised if this hasn't been addressed before in this forum, but when I tri...

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

So, I'm quite happy with what I've got. The old program.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Traditionally, any default is always the wrong choice, and the important thing is that they can be changed to one's liking. I've found Finale's Slurs settings (in three separate dialogs) rather hard to understand, and I've largely just blindly copied numbers from forum posts to improve things. Dori...

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Anders, there has been a lot of discussion of Dorico's slurs because the default inherent slur shape (as opposed to the varying contours of the slurs as used in all the different situations) is quite different from Finale's. However, with setting changes, Dorico can achieve slurs that are comparabl...
