 Mozart editions (in Rome?)
Author: Morrigan

Hi everyone,

Lots of people have seen that I've been working off the Boosey & Hawkes Mozart Concerto and usually have a pretty strong reaction, telling me to get something else because its 'rubbish' or 'old-fashioned' (I'm quoting others on this, remember).

I'm in Rome at the moment and an audition has come up sort of last-minute, and I need to go out and buy the Mozart concerto again so that I can take the piano part along with me. So what editions are good, and does anybody know of any good sheet music stores in Rome?

Thanks so much

The Baehrenreiter so-called ur-text edition has the advantage of being clearly printed on decent quality paper. It also comes with the part for basset clarinet and critical notes. I compared it with the 1802 Andre edition, and it is fairly close. The advantage (or disadvantage -- depends on how you view it) is that it leaves many of the decisions about articulation to you. Ur-text is more of a sales gimmick than a guarantee of authenticity by the way.

There is a big music shop in Via Ripetta, near the Piazza del Popolo. Failing that, there used to be a big Ricordi store just off the Piazza Veneto.

Try Scatola Sonora near Piazza Vittorio or Musicarte (Via Fabio Massimo).
