Browsed the Internet and have found Musical Information in Musicology and Desktop Publishing. And I liked to «benchmark» LilyPond a bit — how it would do this fragment:
Of course, I mean «benchmarking» in sense of comparing with some «predefined quality». Take a look at ly — no tweaks but some fingering inside slurs and some \fs put down.
Well, some of elements are unknown to me ;-)
But i like LilyPond very much :-)
Here is a (as for me) really difficult test for Lilypond. Requires 5 or 6 voices and some twidding to manage those horizontal spacing… That’s the main problem is not slurs. (hmm… what about pedals?..)
