Chopin Mazurkas edition choice??
on: October 29, 2016, 03:18:26 AM
Has anyone compared editors of Chopin's Mazurkas?  I'm considering Polish National edition, edited by Jan Ekiar, Dover edited by Carl Mikuli, Kalmus edited by F. Liszt, and Henle edited by E. Zimmerman.  Does anyone favor one editor's presentation?

My preference would be to either the National Edition (Ekier) or the Paderewski.

The Ekier books I've used have had good binding sewn in signatures, quality paper, and crisp printing.  Read here first if you are interested in getting the set

Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

I've got the Pderwsky edition and I'm quite happy with it
