Etiquette: Mark's observation is right. Plainly I was hasty.
I had quite a 'sore chin' and am not very streetwise.
It did not occur to me, when I read Steve's last line:
"If you could post something on the list correcting this,
it would be very helpful", that I should have redrafted it.
It was much too easy just to press the buttons.
He would surely not have given his permission
for the whole thing to go. He has written to me again
retracting most of what he wrote the first time,
but I cannot share his exact words with you yet.
He says that he is not subscriber, so someone who is,
reported my question to him, possibly out of context.
That may not have been quite fair to Steve or to me?
We were being 'wound up'. It would be good if
Steve's customers in the USA would report to the
list that they have had no problems of the sort
erroneously suggested. If I am allowed to continue
to subscribe I will now go into lurker mode for a
while. If I have input to anyone's questions, and
I have the time, I will reply directly.

I met Steve briefly in Stockholm. He maintains a correspondences
with Pamela Weston and she is in regular contact with me.
He has also emailed me from time to time. I have helped him
with two recent repertoire recovery projects: Ireland's 3rd Piano
Trio, originally conceived for cl vc pf (see Cobbett; Ireland),
begun in 1914, but was not completed, without the clarinet,
until 1938; and Bax's Trio (1906) for vn va pf, (see Foreman; Bax)
where the viola part, written for Tertis, is too high for the viola,
and which the composer gave permission to be played on the
clarinet, but was published without a clarinet part.

Last night Victoria Soames played Howells' Clarinet Sonata and
Hurlstone's Trio at the Purcell Room. Howells' Sonata was intended
for the A clarinet. Boosey published it for the B flat and had to be
canvassed to produce an A part. It is now out-of-print and only available
at greater expense from the Boosey archive. The Hurlstone Trio has
been re-united with its 'lost' Scherzo (placed third) and the original
movement order has been re-instated. The three movement published
edition placed the first movement last and the last movement first.
A new edition is preparation. The Scherzo is quite exciting and full
of counterpoint. I first heard it on an as-yet un-issued CD, recorded
last year in Budapest by Spencer Pitfield and his colleagues from Helsinki.
A success story.
