Non-MuseScore score question
In the attached, there are simultaneous > hairpins and "cresc." text. Any idea what is actually meant, is it to get louder or softer?
The snip is from IMSLP45497-PMLP04725 page 123 (Die Walküre, Act III Scene I about 12/13 of the way through the scene). The same section in a different score edition (IMSLP341993) has the same concern, so it's not a one-off problem.
My next step is to see how it's approached in recordings, but given the short duration it might not be possible to pick it up.
Any help appreciated.
