Urtext ma non troppo

From Taneyev to Busoni
After publishing Dreamstory I began realizing a change in the way I made harmonies and melodies (elegant jazzy chords, anyone?). This, in addition to immersing myself in a plethora of piano music by Liszt, Chopin, Bach and Ravel sparked my interest into (Western) music notation and professional music composition.

Using Sibelius I started out with the default Opus font while manually inputting the notes. I was unhappy with the way the notes looked so ventured on a pursuit for a new music font. I came across Bravura by musical software company Steinberg. Although incompatible with Sibelius a modified version called Taneyev by polymath Andrew Moschou will work. Overall the design seemed too pudgy for my tastes.
