Say, is there an authoritative edition of Granados's music? An Urtext if you will?


If there is, I'd like to know. But I doubt it. I've listened to so many players play his pieces and they are all so different from one another. I suppose de Larrocha would play the most 'authentic' music, but still...it would be nice to see it in print. I'm using a Dover edition and never checked other editions. Thanks for giving me the idea, Pete. :wink:

The complete edition edited by Douglas Riva should be pretty reliable, seeing as he worked closely with Larrocha.

Why am I always the last one to find out about these things?:x I didn't even know there was a Riva edition. :oops:

I sure am glad that I hang around with such smart people. :D I'll check out the book very soon!

I was also unaware of a Larrocha/Riva edition.

Apparently, it IS the urtext edition, if anyone finds it online, let us all know!

Oh, yes, Pete. That's it! I'm so excited. Just found the complete set on a Spanish music publishers website and struggled with working out the money conversion of the various volumes. But then I found them at sheetmusicplus.com

here is the direct link:

The $740 dollars for the complete set shocked me, and I'm sure my husband will not let me order it. But I don't want every volume. Only 8 of them, so I'm going to order two at time to avoid suspicion.

Monica you found it! Thanks.

Just what I'd expect of anything Urtext. For those of us that take accuracy seriously, it's almost worth the price.
