Best Edition of Bazzini Dance of the Goblins?
Can someone recommend the best edition of Bazzini Dance of the Goblins?
I usually end up buying 4 editions of any piece before I find the one I like. Hoping to avoid that with the group wisdom here!
Have you looked at IMSLP:
The concept of 'violinits' cause me considerable amusement...
Andrew Victor: YES! I download tons for stuff from IMSLP, and I donate to them. It's just that.....well, a person can download every possible edition, but I wanted an opinion of other violinists, just in case there was an edition that was stellar. Thank you!
Comparing editions really is very interesting, albeit expnsive. I find one basic problem is whether you have a small hand and prefer more compact fingerings or a large hand that needs to be more open and stretched. I’m really struggling with the fingered version of the Paganini caprices that came with the urtext (Breitkopf) which seems ot emphasize the former.
Breitkopf? Do you mean the Peters but confuse the fingerings by Hertel with B&H? :)
I think I meant dumpkof but I’m not fussy. Anyway, its a dingy blue color....
I don't think you meant Dumpkof, since that is me. Could it be Henle and Barbieri then? The only other blue Urtext I know of is Bärenreiter, but that contains no fingering (except Pag's). Or is there a Breitkopf Urtext that I don't know about :O
Lora, Thanks for your reply. I understand exploring different editions for variations in fingerings, articulations and bowing, but even if I only have one edition I eventually make those changes on my own.
Hi Mattias not-dummpkof,
