It appears that there are several editions of Asturias (leyenda) of Albeniz. Question: Does anyone know if one edition is more authentic than the other? 1. Union Musical Espagnola. Edited by Juan Salvat (IMSLP download) 2. Edited by C. B. Roepper (IMSLP download) 3. International Music Company. Edited by Isidor Philipp (On order) I downloaded #1 and #2 editions of Asturias (Leyenda) few days ago, and #3 is on order. It's conceivable that I may end up with 3 editions that will vary considerably. Besides several other minor variations, there is one major difference in measure #25 and onward concerning the leaping ff octave chords. Salvat edition: the ff octave chords in R.H. is on the downbeat Roepper edition: the ff octave chords in R.H. is on 2nd 1/16th beat. Also in measure #71, and measure #3,4 of middle section, etc., the entire piece tries to emulate a guitar, so I think the chords should be rolled as it sounds stylistically more appropriate. I've also heard recordings that roll and don't roll these chords. Here is a recording I made following the #1 Salvat edition with the leaping octave chords on the downbeat. What do you all think? I haven't decided how I like it better, but I think it's more difficult to play it this way as that extra 1/16th note might give one just the time to reset the fingers on the right notes. I devoted almost the entire weekend on learning this new piece. I couldn't wait to record it. Clearly, it's work in progress as I've been practicing on it for a few days, so it's not perfect, but I could always use criticism. I'll make a better recording after I get all the notes right on the octave chords, and get more feedback on the authenticity of the various editions. Hopefully the piano will be tuned in a few weeks as it was tuned exactly 1 year ago. You might notice a slight decrease in the dynamic range as I changed a few sound panels in the room, no effects other than 11% reverb, and used my tiny MicrotrackII recorder for the quick recording.
