Piano Music Notation Question

Recommended Posts

I have attached a section from a piece I am working on showing two different ways that I can notate the section. Originally I was using the Version 2 notation but recently switched it to the Version 1 notation. I have seen both notations used in piano scores. Which way is preferable?

It depends somewhat on whether you want to emphasize different voices or something else like building up a chord note by note. I would go with the second choice here; it's kind of annoying seeing note after note tied together like that. I'm also not so sure how necessary it is in the bass clef. I'd think just three crotchet notes in one voice would suffice.
