Dear friends,

Since I too need a "long fermata" to place between two (or more) notes, I've searched around for a solution and I found this thread.

I now managed to draw the symbol in postscript. This is my first attempt to use postscript: I can imagine this will be very far to be perfect! However, I hope this can be useful to someone:

% begin code
\version "2.12.3"

cadenzaFermata = \markup { \pad-around #1 \postscript #"0 0 moveto 0.6 2.4 4.3 2.4 4.8 0 curveto 4.2 2.2 0.6 2.2 0 0 curveto 0 0.1 lineto 0.2 setlinewidth stroke 2.3 0.2 moveto / glyphshow stroke" }
  cf = ^\cadenzaFermata

\relative c'' {
  a4 \cf b r2 |
% end code

As you can see, it's very simple - but I think it can work. It surely would be better to have this as an articulation, but I'm not so good with Scheme, for now. Has anyone some good advice?
