Kreutzer Galamian in PDF
Hi guys, I ever played with a Ferdinand David's edition of Kreutzer. But in a talk with some friends, they said that the Galamian's edition is better to practice. I would like to see it before buying any to compare (here in Brazil is very expensive), but I can't find where to download it, anyone know?
Thank you all.
Best wishes from Brazil.
You can see a sample page at Shar music or Sheet Music Plus.
I don't think you're going to find it as a pdf download; it's still under copyright.
Thank you for the answers. A friend of mine has the scanned version and sent to me. If someone wants to see it too, tell me in the instagram's direct @arthurlautonviolinista
Please be aware that sharing a complete scanned version of the Galamian edition of Kreutzer is most likely a copyright violation.

I don't know if there is a conservatory or music school with a library around there, but I would find it surprising if a library at a music school didn't have the Galamian edition of Kreutzer.

Dear Ms Matesky, I unfortunately have no way to contact other posters on violinist.com other than through this forum. With utmost respect, Mary Ellen Goree
Dear Mary Ellen Gore ~
The Etudes are available in several editions on the IMSLP site. Just print what you need from there.
Dear Elisabeth Matesky, very best wishes from San Antonio, Texas, to you for a wonderful Easter in Chicago!
I thought Heifetz got on fairly well with Galamian. Did he discourage his students from contact?
Comparing Galamian's edition of the Kreutzer with that of Flesch shows very interesting differences. For example, for augmented fourths Galamian likes to open out his long fingers on one sting, while Flesch prefers two close fingers across two strings. Flesch also likes to avoid lower positions on the steel E that he hated so much.
I don't worry about what edition I have. My teacher just writes new fingerings and bowings into everything anyway. And if I am working on something on my own, I figure whoever the editor was, they probably know (or knew) more than I about violin technique. Including Ivan Apparently the Terrible.
Respectfully, i use a Galamian edition, and i like it really a lot.
