After looking at your examples (in PDF-files) [...]
it looks like the small slurs are clear in the sense that they do not
merge with the staff line. Therefore, both slurs have the right
I disagree -- here is my correction of the uppermost tie (done manually
in a graphics program):
Description: Adobe PDF document
Note that the tie is exactly the same height as the lower two (in fact,
I simply duplicated the third tie!), and yet it does not merge with the
staff line. Furthermore, this "corrected" tie could be scaled down a
tiny bit in Lilypond to avoid even the 'proximity blur' that one's eyes
might add automatically in such cases (I just didn't know how to do
that in Graphic Convertor).
[n.b. I left the second tie (counting from the top) uncorrected, for
What could be improved, is the roundness of the taller short slur.
the beatifulness of the slurs corresponds to the mathematical
that the curvature of the slur increases from the center of the slur
to its ends.
A very interesting theory/observation!
