May 29 '18 at 1:55 comment added user48353 I'm not contradicting you, I agree with what you've written: pedal markings are just noise on the page unless something not obvious is intended. I wrote "too categorical" because I felt that the sentence beginning "To put pedal markings in makes the music look like a student edition" could be read as meaning all pedal markings in all music. Reading it again today, I think it's clear enough as is, so +1.
May 28 '18 at 16:53 comment added Heather S. @replete, I don't see how this contradicts what I was saying, only that "special effects" is another use for writing in pedal besides just wanting certain harmonies captured. But, still, writing pedal all throughout is akin to writing in bowings for string players. Professionals only need markings when the composer wants a specific sound.
May 28 '18 at 12:05 comment added user48353 A little too categorical. Adding pedal markings is justified when unusual effects are desired, e.g. Beethoven Op31 No2. If you meant putting pedal markings in the OP's excerpt makes it look like a student edition, rather than that putting them in music generally makes it look that way, then I misunderstood you and my comment doesn't apply.
