    Yes, 13 musical symbols at 1D15E..1D164 and 1D1BB..1D1C0.

    But there are no characters beyond the BMP that will ever be recomposed using

    Unicode Standard Annex #15 ( specifies that
    precomposed characters that are added after Unicode 3.0 are excluded from
    composition (i.e. not recomposed when NFC is applied to them). As all characters
    beyond the BMP were added in Unicode 3.1 or later, you can effectively ignore
    any character greater than U+FFFF (or any surrogates if you are processing
    UTF-16) when applying NFC to a text stream.
