Re: Not strictly engraving, but rather notation question

I had originally written accel poco a poco , for the first four measures, then at the new tempo, più mosso, ma tempo giusto ( :4 = 76) however, I was told this was somewhat wonky Italian. I have no suggestion for your question but as an Italian I can only say that's perfectly correct Italian. I cou...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

If you think that the fingering would differ so extensively for harpsichord and piano, I would vote for three versions, then, one unfingered, one prepared by an expert harpsichordist and one by an expert pianist, musicians who have performed the sonatas extensively. As for the different fingerings,...

Re: The biggest scandal in music publishing

Hi, NeeraWM - Michele! I'm Italian myself. I'm sorry to say I have neither the time nor the inclination to embark myself in a similar project, which of course I wish you to succeed wholeheartedly. More important, John Ruggero has a very clear idea of what to do and so he is the one who could carry o...

Re: All seven of Lotti's operas!

What an incredible work! And freely-downloadable, too. That’s very generous. Beautifully engraved, too (that’s no surprise).

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...
