A thought.

There are countless - well maybe not, since some doctoral student has
undoubtedly counted them - editions of K622.

If editing is "wrong" - or at least, "wrong-headed" - perhaps it's time to
have a Mozart scholar-in-the-know come out with a "non-edition." Just the
facts, ma'am, the notes we're reasonably certain of, and a text explanation
of what's not there (and why it isn't).

At this point in my playing career, it won't make much difference. There
are a bazillion young kids, however, who could be saved from erroneous
"learning" by a direct, scholarly and honest approach to the piece.

. . . I'd buy it, anyway.

Perhaps Tony and Dan can collaborate. I'll buy the pizza and beer.
