Generate piano part

It is possible to automatically generate piano parts from a score?

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, add a new piano part in that layout. Then you can select a range of notes in multiple staves, copy them, and in the piano part, choose Paste Special–Reduce.

I suppose it’s not completely automatic, but it’s a great way to create piano reductions. You usually need to make some changes to a piano reduction anyways, since it’s sometimes a bit of an art.

Thank you very much for your quick reply. Massimo

One key tip is to reduce in chunks, doing sections that are in rhythmic unison separately from sections with different rhythms – this allows Dorico to consolidate music with the same rhythm into the same voice.


Yes, a warning though, as Dan said, that the piano part will require a lot of voice manipulation before it looks idiomatic.
