  • December 22, 2011 Old school editing

    Edited by Emile Sauret (1852-1920) and ©1930. I wish the listing would reflect this; as is typical for early 20th-century violin editing, the reliance on odd-numbered positions is present to a degree that seems anachronistic. For example, in the first movement, Sauret only braves second position for...

    one beat in m.99 and sixth for one beat in m.111. Everything else is in first, third, and fifth, often with multiple shifts (i.e., two shifts in three notes). Such editions can be of historical value as a snapshot of the editing styles in a given generation, but it's not my cup of tea. On the plus side, Schott's usually fine engraving makes this a pleasure to read.
