I'm putting in a piano part in four voices. I've got four staffs. I'm
wanting to interpret this eventually. On top of the laundry list of things
I've already grumbled about to date, it strikes me that it is also needlessly
tedious to have to keep putting in four dynamics, four hairpins, etc. when
these directions are only printed once on the original part, in the space
between staves on the grand staff. Even doing it twice would be
comparatively reasonable, but having to do it four times because of the dual
voices in both hands, that's getting downright absurd. When we make it
possible to have multiple voices, we should have the discrete segments share
common features such as these, with some understanding that one is the
"master" segment, and the sub-voices take the same dynamics and whatnot.
Perhaps unless otherwise specified. I suppose there might be complicated music
out there where having different dynamics in all four (or six or eight)
implicit parts is necessary, and that should still be possible; just probably
not the default, standard behavior.
