What do the slashes mean in this piece by Sor?

Postby glassynails » Sun Oct 28, 2012 1:42 pm

Hi.

Opus 32, No. 2 (a favorite of mine by the way). I'm wondering what the slashes at the repeats by bars 9 and 10 mean.


Thanks :)

I would assume it means that's the target of the repeat indicated near the end, which has "close slashes". Like the "Segno" of a "Da Segno", but easier to write.

I think just part of the repeat indications in German publications of the period Glassy, nothing more. A (very quick) scan of a few pieces shows them used in publishing houses in Bonn, Hamburg & Leipzig but not London or Paris.

Maybe someone with more time can shed more light.

Mark's correct, it's just part of the old style repeat sign. It encloses the part to be repeated. In a piece or two later you can see it done slightly different as both sections are repeated.

The slashes are considered redundant these days although I've occassionally seen composers use them as they hand write their manuscript.

The slashes are redundant but they're easy to see and i don't get lost with them!!!

It's like the old (very old) books when they used to write on the bottom of the page the first word of the next page.

That's a good idea, Larry. I never really thought about using them if they're not already there but I think I will. I've almost missed a couple repeats now that the old eyes need specs.

Ok, explains that!

Now what does the the "X" in bar 17 mean? Especially the way it precedes an accidental.

If you mean piece no. 2...Double sharp on the F (F##).
