Also it would be good to discuss how to deal with da capo sort of repeats,
and how to deal with da capo with an implicit "senza ripetizioni".

A somewhat extreme case occurs in Chopin's mazurka Op. 7 No. 2 in A minor:

(pages 3 & 4)

Different pianists will play the four printed sections of this piece in
various ways (score says to do AABBCDDA):

 And Raffaele can discuss/think how to access measures in the score which
is coordinated with the score.  Such as if I wanted to start the
performance of the score at the start of the last repetition of the A
section which is at measure 1 in the score, but typically the third
performance of measure 1 in a recording...
