I'm thinking about buying some of the Miniature Scores from Dover Publications for score studying. Do anyone have some experience with those scores? Are they for full orchestra? Are they easy to read (not to small printing)? Am I better of buying the bigger (in size) versions?
I'm considering buying the scores for Scheherazade (Rimsky-Korsakov) and The Planets (Holst) and probably some more. Are they full scores or only parts (not complete)?
Sorry for all the questions, but can anyone help me with some answers?
A miniature score means that the score is a graphic reproduction so it can fit into your pocket. It's the complete orchestral score, just miniaturized by the camera. They used to be called "pocket scores". The Dover scores average $6US and you can see them at www.doverpublications.com.
