    Can you double a series of five triplets when each triplet is preceded by an appoggiatura?


    This is a tricky one, as it's not specifically covered in the Code.

    However tempting it may be, I don't think I would double the triplets in this case, even though the appoggiaturas are outside the rhythmic content of the measure. Since we put the triplet indicator after the appoggiatura I would argue that it would be more confusing than helpful to have it doubled and then interrupted by the grace notes.

    Another argument for not doubling the triplet is that we cannot double intervals or nuances if the appoggiaturas are not affected in the same manner. I say the same goes for the triplet doubling.
