Chopin Etudes
« on: January 17, 2021, 02:56:21 PM »
 I am working on a few of the Etudes. I have the Dover, Schirmer, and Cortot editions. Are there other editions to use to compare fingerings and pedal markings? Thanks for your help!

Henle verlag and Polish National Edition might be useful

Agreed, the Ekier National Edition is really good in my opinion. I have them for my studies and they are far better than the Dover editions.

Henle for Chopin isnít very good IMO.

I understand Ekier is viewed by many as the best thouroghly researched and accurate edition. I have the Henle for the Chopin Etudes and since its an Urtext it has Chopin's original pedal markings, which are sometimes surprisingly long. They do print Chopin's original fingerings as well (in the few places he indicated them) and those are valuable for sure!

Something to keep in mind with Cortot's edition is that Cortot's fingerings sometimes differ quite a lot from Chopin's.
