Hi all,

Since a few years I've basically exclusively bee using Urtext editions of works. I don't need the editorial suggestions anymore to create my own opinion about the piece, but the composer's one. I have the Urtext editions of all of Bach's keyboard music. Most of Beethoven's, Mozart's, Haydn's, Chopin's and several others.

However, Urtext editions are quite expensive. That's why I'm going to create my own Urtext editions of pieces that I don't have yet and those which don't have an Urtext edition available online. I will upload all of them to IMSLP and let you guys know when new ones arrive.
