Hello my first post in the composers forum!
I am currently studying scores - Tchaichovsky Ballets and The Planets at present. I have a decent studio euqiopped with various orchestras and Cubase 6. I generally use Cubase score but mght by Sibelius (I am using the trial to see).
Presently I am looking for reliable scores by the masters as above. I have some minature scores but find that the music flashes by too quick.
a] I could download MIDI files and stick these in my sequencer, but I would loose all score markings and this is really important to me.
b] I could try to find Sibelius music files and use these, but I want to be sure that they too have the appropriate score markings
c] I could use conductor scores, this is probably the best way, but I dont know how to get these and what publisher would offer relaible scores.
My present modus operandi is to download Utube performances, load them into a player with A-B repeat function, work out the form, then isolate various passages fro deeper studies
What would be truly wonderful is a way of loading an accurate score into a media player of some kind, watchthe notes go by and at the same time be able to isolate a passage whilst listening to a real performance - maybe something is out ther like this?
Can anyone advise about how to source the best scores for study?
