I could do with a music stand that will go almost flat on the top hinge - looking into this issue.

Adrian, truly epic, Bro! I almost fall off the chair. Hahaha!


Can anybody name the epic on the stand?


EPIC means "extremely awesome"!
I remembered that I had done similarly but horizontally across like a train, when I did the Mauro Giuliani op.15, many many years back. You can imagine how long it is. But for me, it feels really good!

I am somebody who likes to have the music there on a stand, but in a long piece (such as Paganini Grand Sonata and Bach Chaconne), I don't want to have a mass of sheets stuck together that look like they might collapse at any point. I also want to avoid as many page turns as possible.

For those who like to have the sheet music in a performance, what practical solutions do people use?

Do you use an even bigger board attached to the stand, and if so, where could I buy such a board?



You could use a sheet of cardboard to extend the left/right width of your music stand. A small dab of glue stick will hold the music sheets in place without doing any damage.

Exactly what I would do. I prefer playing from memory, but in a big piece it could be useful to follow where you are in the development of.

Cool :)

Adrian Allan, That is the Grand Stand Sonata in 18 parts by Correx.

I use my iPad with forscore app and Bluetooth pageturn firefly. I literally have libraries full of music for guitar, solo voice, choir, jazz, and fake books in one small convenient device.

I simply use clothes pegs where required
