Can anyone make a recommendation for a good edition of Liszt/Schumann's Widmung? Is there a definitive edition that most agree is the best?

Thanks in advance.

I have only the Schirmer (ed. Wm. Scharfenberg) and the Peters (ed. Sauer). The Peters is Volume IX of their Liszt series (cat. no. 3602a), and includes 19 transcriptions of Schubert Lieder, two of Schumann, three of Beethoven, 6 of Chopin, 2 of Mendelssohn, one of Lassen and one of Liszt's own songs. Last time I checked, this volume was selling for around $110.00 in Canada and over $90.00 in the US. (Edited: just doubled checked; it's down to $83.00 at SheetMusicPlus. Grab it while you can!

Liszt Transcriptions

Alfred Masterworks also publishes it separately.

The advantage of the Peters over the Schirmer is that Peters presents the score on six pages with only two page turns. The Schirmer spreads it out over nine pages - more page turns. There is more fingering given in the Schirmer than in the Peters if that's important to you.

I am sure that there are other editions. Perhaps one of the most authoritative would be Editio Musica Budapest, but I haven't checked their catalog to see. My copies of volumes in their Liszt Piano Works date from about 20 years ago when the series was still in progress.

All that said, it really depends what you're looking for in a "best" edition.

Regards,

Thanks, I think I may check out the Schirmer edition. Is there a Verlag urtext edition of this piece? If so, has anyone tried it?

The Editio Musica Budapest is available, for only $139.00 Canadian. For me, there would be little else of interest among the transcriptions in this particular volume:

Liszt transcriptions

Many thanks. I have so many volumes of music though I'm trying to buy single editions for now of only what I need when I can find them. But again thanks for the suggestions. I appreciate it.

If by "Verlag" you mean Bärenreiter Verlag, I couldn't find it in their catalog.

How about IMSLP, or are you not fond of loosely computer-printed sheets?

By the way, that EMB suggestion at $139.00 was pretty much tongue in cheek. I'm thinking that not many will be investing that kind of money when searching for a single selection!

You can also find this with Henle Verlag. It comes as a separate booklet for about 8 euros. The EMB would be the most official. They sell it for 40 euros on their site without shipping but I do not know if they ship to US. The EMB comes of course with several other pieces.

They don't have to be loosely-printed.

Depending on whether your laser/inkjet printer can handle Tabloid/A3 paper or only regular Letter/A4 paper, you can either:

* bind the music into books/booklets using one or more signatures, or
* use cellophane/painter's tape to tape multiple sheets together

There are many book-binding as well as sheet music taping videos on youtube.

I didn't realize there were so many Verlags! I typically purchase Henle for much of my music needs.

A "Verlag" is just a publisher. There are hundreds... !

Actually, I was referring to the quality of paper when I wrote "computer-printed sheets." Even there, one can buy special paper if paper quality is a concern. What I do with those that I print out from IMSLP and want to keep is put them into three-hole plastic sleeves and put them in a three-ring binder. That serves my purposes for extra/other editions or copies for my teacher. My teacher, while listening, can write on the print-outs if I am using my own score at the time. That's a case where the paper quality doesn't really matter (to me).

Regards,


BruceD

Hah! Thank you. All this time I thought Verlag was the editor's name!
