How should I interpret an end repeat barline without a corresponding start repeat barline? I was expecting to see a few bars delimited by corresponding start and end repeat barlines, but in this piece I encounter the end repeat barline after bar 8 but there is no preceding start repeat barline.
the barline after bar 8 is a combined end / start repeat.
The piece is a Frank Bridge Miniature piano trio - a genre whose written music I am not familiar with, although I expect repeat barlines mean the same in any genre.
the final barline of the piece is not a repeat barline and there is no “Da Capo” instructions at the end.
