I pointedly spell it without the d, to differentiate from the other meaning.

BTW, I never realized till I looked it up just now that apparently 'my' spelling is the less preferred one.
I had thought it was at least 'equal'....

Thank you for making me realize I'm weird in yet another way besides the ways I knew. grin

P.S. Great to see you!!! -- been quite a while!

Mark - It might depend on the edition you use, as to how well they use the octave-above symbols to eliminate the number of nasty high-ledger-line-count notes. For me, the ledger line notes that give me pause to think are the ones above E. In my Barenreiter edition, there are only about six or seven such notes, with the exception of measures 22-26. And in those five measures, I would do what bennevis said -- i.e., write in the note names by the offending notes. Since they come in three groups of same-notes, it would only be necessary to write in F#, A#, and C# one time each, before the first such note in each of those groups.

I tried playing this in recital once and despite my best efforts I ended up with egg all over my face at the end. What a humiliation.

Haha, I think ridiculous ledger lines get stuck in everybody's craw. I've got a piece I often play where both hands are in the stratosphere but despite the fact that this would easily lend itself to 8va notation, the score somehow thinks 7 ledger lines is totally cool. Not cool. Yellow card.

Thank you for the excuse! I'm going to go ahead and claim that ledger lines are my primary deterrent to learning La Campanella. If it weren't for them, I'd totally play it. I'd only need a couple of hours, too. But, you know, ledger lines.

Ha! Figures. For whatever reason, the lines have never been bothersome to me. Now the irregular rhythms in something like Scriabin...
