How can I tell LilyPond to print two pages in a A3 landscape paper?
In the attached example, I'd like to have 2 pages instead of 4.

That's not lilypond's job, but your printer driver's or your PDF viewer's. (Or
altenatively you can post-process the PDF by using pdfnup on Linux)

Thanks Reinhold, pdfnup does the job pretty easily.
This is the command I've used:

pdfnup book.pdf --nup 2x1 --paper a3-paper --orient landscape --outfile bookA3.pdf

Before you mentioned pdfnup, I had tried to work with .ps files but I'd never managed to get a decent result.

I took the basic idea from this page:

(three utilities involved: psbook, psnup and ps2pdf)
... too much to study ;-) .. but I'll try again when I have time..

There's any disadvantage in postprocessing a .pdf (instead of working on .ps)?
I mean, quality can be reduced?
It does not seem the case looking at the screen, but if there's any drawback please let me know.
