No, I have not indicated the editor when I have performed the Weber 1st, but I
don't use all of the ossia parts anyway. These extra ornaments are found only
in the first movement. I agree, an "Urtext", more authentic, closer to the
manuscript edition, may yield Weber's true intentions better, but many students
need more to go by.
I have never investigated the Weber manuscripts. How much is truly the composer
and not copyist or performer indications? Keith Koons (University of Central
Florida) gave an interesting presentation at Ohio State on the different Mozart
Concerto editions. Since Weber is another candidate for so many varied
interpretations and editions, perhaps it is time that someone did the same, but
rest assured, it won't be me!
