Oh no! Don't give up!
I had never thought of this before. Now I'm thinking that if one has a MIDI file of something, it would be handy to have a program showing the total notes for each instrument. Then one could fit some mathematical model to it, and prove how great these works are. \:\)

Some loonies have done that with Bartok's music - I read about half of a book by Erno Lendvai about Bartok, and there is one page that is basically a list: if you count the total number of 8th notes in this particular piece, and you multiply times the golden section (0.618) you get THE 8th note which starts the recapitulation; if you count the total number of 8th notes in THIS piece, and you multiply times the golden section (0.618) you get THE 8th note which starts the recapitulation; etc.... for basically an entire page.

Musicologists have nothing better to do than fill books with note counting. :p

Rach. 3 never ceases to amaze me.

Beauty in its purest sense, IMHO--'tis inspiration from the Highest.

I have the MIDI files. Show me the script and it's done.

Otherwise, let's keep counting, folks!

(I'm just teasing you. ;\) )

I'm a music history major and piano principal - which basically gets all the benefits of being a piano major, but I don't have to prepare 4 pieces for a jury every semester (juries are optional for me), and I also get a musicology degree (instead of a performance degree)

Wow. I'll never again claim that I'm bored. Seriously: learn a language or something! All you really need to say when someone asks how many notes are in Rach 3 is "more 'n you can shake a stick at"! Happy counting.

Might have been easier to use the file on www.piano.ru/library.html, as its the two piano reduction. Oh well.

OK, the third movement is done, off to do some math:

Movement 3:
File 1: 1961
File 2: 2132
File 3: 2306
File 4: 1806
File 5: 1688
File 6: 1867
File 7: 1949

Movement 3 total: 13709[/b]

That makes:

Total notes in Movement 1 (normal cadenza): 10664
Total notes in Movement 1 (ossia cadenza): 11285
Total notes in Movement 2: 4662
Total notes in Movement 3: 13709[/b]

(Drumroll, please...)

Total notes (normal cadenza): 29035
Total notes (ossia cadenza): 29656
[/b]

Whew. What now?

No recounts!

However, I do plan to count the notes in a MIDI file of the work I found.

I expect, though, that the MIDI file will contain many MORE notes than is correct - remember a MIDI file will count every note of a trill, so while we counted trills as 2 notes, a trill in a MIDI file could be anywhere from 4 to 100 notes depending on the length of the trill.

If the MIDI number is within a decent range, though, I'll call our project a smashing success!

Thanks to all who undertook the project, this was fun!
