We have also improved, contextualized, revised and beautified them, and also introduced them as we would like to be a score:
- Carefully designed.
- Date of composition, longtime and difficulty level at a glance.
- Orientation of the main technical and performance skills.
- Opinion of relative importance (historical+musical).

- Useful historical and musical contextualization (Spanish, French and English).
- Opera setting if the case, with recommended discography and videography.
- Superb figures related to the score, some of which unpublished until now
