Frederick Kuhlau Sonatinas
on: June 13, 2004, 06:23:39 PM
Does anyone know where I can get my hands on Fr. Kuhlau's complete piano sonatinas, urtext?  I can't seem to find an unedited version of his Sonatinas, only edited editions which are just awful.  Does anyone have a link to download or where I can buy the score, if they are in existance?  I mean an urtext (non-edited) version?  Thanks.

I don't think there is an Urtext edition of them - actually Henle has one of them included in a volume of sonatinas by mixed composers.

I would look at the Alfred edition. While their editions contain editing, they usually put editors marks in a lighter gray, so they are distinguished from the composers marks.  
I'm going by my experience with the Clementi sonatinas, Bach inventions, and Chopin prelude editions. They are great instructional editions because they contain a lot of information on ornamentiation, etc.

That's the thing.  I can't get those kinds of different editions here in Japan, especially where I live which is way in the countryside.  Thanks anyway, Hmoll.
