Can anyone advise which are the preferred editions of the most popular etudes and caprices? Most copies I have seen have been "re-edited".
** Kreutzer (Edition Peters, edited by Hermann)
** Fiorillo (CF Peters, edited by Fr. Hermann
** Rode (edited by Emil Kross)
My only concern would be whether the fingerings, bowings and other editorial improvements are no longer in vogue, or have altered the original too much etc. The preface to the Rode especially indicates some potentially significant changes.
Equally however, they may be invaluable additions... Maybe the editorial details don't even matter (give or take)... Comments appreciated.
