  • January 03, 2008 You want this

    Barenreiter is the most authentic source of scores for Baroque and early classical music. You want it free of edited dynamics, bowings, etc. Musicians of that time and today did and should come up with their own interpretations and variations of phrasing. That is music.

  • November 25, 2006 No dynamic markings?

    Honestly, don't buy an urtext edition if you're looking for an edition that has been "realized". The whole point of buying this edition is to have JUST the score, so that you may make your own decisions as to ornamentation, dynamics, etc. On another note, be aware that...

    this is the urtext from a different source than most of us are used to, so some accidentals, etc., are very different than the traditional.

  • November 01, 2004 GREAT!

    Overall, I was very pleased with the price, the value for money, and that it has all orchestral parts in this score. However, I would like to clarify that there are no dynamic markings in the text, and I was slightly suprised. Otherwise, very good, and I recommend it to...

    everyone who is interested in Vivaldi's music or baroque music in general for an orchestra.
