The Elusive "Badinage"
on: July 17, 2004, 08:17:37 PM
Anyone know where I can find the sheetmusic to Godowsky's "Badinage" etude? All I can find are books with all of the studies on Chopin's etudes...and those run for about 50 bucks which is silly when I'm just looking for the Badinage one anyways. (I realize I could just download a MIDI file and convert it to sheetmusic, but I need a published score as I want to use this piece for my college entrance auditions.)
wOOt! I have a website now! It's spiffy!

You really are quite the lazy one. Try looking better, and maybe you will actually find it. Just skimming through something won't actually help. Had you actually chosen not to be such a lazy person, you would have gotten here: https://www.geocities.com/alanchan1048576/mus/godowsky.html which the sheet music and midi files for just about all of Godowsky's etudes.

I don't think it's possible... they will not make a book of 5-6 pages, and the only "edited" scores are books. Just try to find someone who has the book, and ask him to make a scan only of the badinage etude. But you could  buy the whole book, since you will surely make other etudes of him to make exams. And you could use it to make sight reading for fun and other things like that !

Ahem. I did go there. I did go to Godowsky's page. I did see that there were .pdf files for some of the etudes, however the Badinage etude was not available for download, but that doesn't matter anyways because if you would have actually read my first post you would have seen that I was looking for published sheetmusic. I have been seeking to find the sheetmusic to this etude alone for some time and have looked on the internet many places, and as I also mentioned in my first post, in my searches I only turned up pricey books of the entire set of etudes. I thought maybe someone would have a real suggestion where I might have more luck searching for such a score.

Publishers put out the sheetmusic (not in the form of a book, but in nice looking, professionally done sheets) to many individual songs. Sorry for snapping at the last guy but you cannot submit a xerox copy of a score for you college auditions or competitions.

You can purchase the Lienau edition of the etudes in five separate volumes.  Badinage is in Volume 5.  Each volume runs about $23.  I use these editions also because they divide the etudes into smaller books which stay open better.  This is a better alternative than the $50 book.  

You can find these editions here.  Just do a search for Godowsky:

Surely you can manage 20 bucks.   ;)

Let me add that the $50 book includes a few of Godowsky's own preparatory exercises.  The Lienau edition does not include these.  No big deal, though.  I'm talking maybe 5 pages worth of stuff.

What's so hard about buying the $50 book?  if you bought the five separate volumes you'd rack up double that amount...that's just lunacy
