Does anyone have Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas, Vol 1 the Alfred Masterwork Edition? Can you check something for me? Before I purchase the book, I want to make sure that Sonata No. 8 the 2nd movement starts with the sixteen notes on top, what is normally the treble clef, but in this case starts with two bass clefs. I’ve seen editions where the treble is on top and the sixteen notes are in the bass clef. Don’t want that one. My local music store doesn’t carry the book and Amazon doesn’t show that Sonata. Thanks

I have an Alfred Masterwork Edition, edited by Stewart Gordon. Is that the one you are looking at? That has what you are looking for, If I'm reading you correctly.

bSharp(C)yclist Yes. edited by Stewart Gordon. The one you linked is just that one Sonata, whereas the one I'm looking at is Vol 1 which includes Sonata's 1-8, but I'm sure it's the same one. Did you like that edition?

Hi PatG,

Ah, so you are looking for this one then.

https://www.alfred.com/beethoven-piano-sonatas-volume-1-nos-1-8/p/00-16743/

After looking at the sample pages, it looks the same. Sample page 219 is the same that I have, so I think you'd be happy with it ;0

I do like the Alfred books. This particular one, edited by Stewart Gordon, was recommended by my teacher. She knows Mr. Gordon from USC.
