Yeah, I know, clichéd, but we all have to have a go at it, don't we. What's the best edition, though?
I've got Marsick and Nichols/Hinrichsen for Peters and have fingering queries with both of them, not to mention their totally different endings.
I'm really interested but I don't know the different editions. Every one I have seen was essentially the same. The first time I performed this was in 1949 at a local church with organ and harp. The last time I can recall was for a dear friend's memorial in 1980. But I often play it just for myself - even within the past month.
Marsick is not too bad and it's on IMSLP. Only needs a few changes.
Somehow, I doubt that anyone will get extra points for fidelity to the manuscript on this one. Unless there is something really unconventional that didn't make it into the solo arrangements.
When I took up the violin after a 25-year gap, "Meditation" is the only "significant" piece that I could still play entirely from memory.
Ahhh... Meditation on Thighs, bittersweet little tune. I like to run through it occasionally.
MediCation of Thais... listen to the recordings you like the most and create your own fingering on your prescription.
A little background reading on the opera "Thais" (with the purpose of finding a riff on AC's "medication" joke) revealed that Leontyne Price is apparently still alive (age 96).
Yes Marsick is good
