If so, yes, Fadini does retain the most of the notational particularities.

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

Just "looked inside" Volume 10 of the Fadini edition (Sheetmusicplus) and it's the same modern (?) notation as the Gilbert - guess I need to get used to it. Also, K1 is #517; it was mentioned previously that the Kirkpatrick editions are not in fact in chronological order, which I though was somethi...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

Yes, of course my preference for unfingered editions is just that - my own preference, for the reasons I outlined. And of course I agree there should be a cheaper printed complete edition. About 100 sonatas are printed in urtext by Henle, fingered. 4 volumes have been published until now, don’t know...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

I agree with Romanos401. The problem for harpsichordists doesn't even exist, as they are trained since their first year. The problem is all for the pianists. But are you sure, John, that the fingerings and the ornamentation would solve the issues and bring a higher number of the sonatas to more play...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

Yes, I agree. Though, Scarlatti hasn't so many ornament signs, just a longer or shorter "shake" (the usual pralltriller or mordant). Nothing comparable to the French's or Bach's tables of ornaments. Its meaning is to be imagined as we have no table of ornaments, and it seems more than likely that in...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

I just checked on the Fadini edition, which looks like an excellent critical edition. Ricordi says that it is free from editorial suggestions etc. so what is still needed is a complete, well-edited, urtext edition at a reasonable price. Something like what is available for the complete works of all...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

John, it’s a pity very few people outside the harpsichord world (and even inside the harpsichord world) do know the Fadini Edition (Ricordi publ.). Emilia Fadini was an Italian scholar and harpsichordist who dedicated her life to Scarlatti and to concerts and teaching (most of the nouvelle vague of ...

An interesting discussion

Up- and down- flags: different widths

Sorry if this has already been discussed. I was reading Leonardo Vinci’s “Erighetta e don Chilone”, ETS Edition, and I noticed the down-stem note flags have a larger width than the up-stem’s: IMG_9766p.jpg I - sort of - like it. The down-stem flags nicely support the nothehead, while the up-stem fla...
