Any idea what Wagner intends with these dynamic marking?
These two screen captures are from the same spot in different editions of the same score, Die Walkure Act III Scene I.
I'm a bit perplexed by the hairpin diminuendo combined with the "cresc." text. Which is it, > or <? What's supposed to happen with the dynamics?
I can't get the intent in recordings either.
It's on IMSLP45497 page 123 of 137 in the pdf and IMSLP341993 page 182 of 459 in the pdf.
