I'm back from Encore! I have to do a huge update later to tell about all the stuff that happened...but right now, I have a quick question for anybody who has ever played the Devil's Trill. I started working on it this summer, and the cadenza is, for lack of a better word, devilish. I have the International edition, and so all of the trills that are in the cadenza, which is most of the page, are not written out in trill form but in chords, with brackets to show which notes to trill. Because it's written this way, it's really, really hard to break down. Does anybody know of an edition that has all of those trills written out?
