Music theory question?
Hi. I'm working on Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata", 3rd Measure, to try to learn more about MuseScore and I'm almost through, even though there have been a few challenges along the journey. Now I've come across yet a challenge.
The attached image shows the "issue" in measure no. 189. There's a whole bunch of notes which are a lot smaller than the "normal" notes - and I cannot figure out the duration of them. I presume there's no change in the time signature (C) and that the last three notes are to be regular quarter notes. That leaves one quarter note worth of "space" or duration for the first 26(!) notes. When I watch the piece on YouTube, the tempo seems to slow down and the number of notes in this measure are played calmly and slowly, compared to the rest, which is played "Presto". I don't know if the small number 8 above the G-clef after the trill-symbol in measure 188 means anything - and if that's the case, what it means?
I've also tried to search the great internet for answers, but had no luck there.
