Laissez Vibrer: Chords tied to nothing
Laissez Vibrer (= Let it Vibrate) appears on piano scores from the 1890s onwards.
Means playing a chord, releasing your fingers but sustainging it with the pedal.
Consists of slurs that either:
type 1) start on a chord and lead to "nowhere" (Starting)
type 2) they don't connect anything (Between). They mostly appear around barlines and are the most rare.
type 3) they come from "nowhere" and lead to a chord (Recieving)
You may not understand what I mean, so see the attachment.
**The length of the slurs should be easily changed, but, by default, they should be somewhat longer than usual.
**The playback should either not change, or in the type 3, the chord could be silent.
**I suggest that the type 2 was some sort of bar line property that memorised how many notes had a laissez vibrer in the preceding bar and "transmitted" them to the next bar.
