There's been 1) a 1919 score of the Violin Concerto, with a confusing history and some obvious errors, but acknowledged by Nielsen; 2) Telmanyi's revised score from 1949, correcting some of the errors but also being too 'creative'; and 3) the new, official Carl Nielsen Edition score from 2002, reflecting the best current knowledge as regards both correctness and authenticity. Supposedly, recordings after 2002 would be the new, improved edition then.

Nice! It's too bad recordings are inconsistent to include publishing information.

Perhaps haul out your ouija board and ask him?  ;)

PD

The Ouija spirits were feeling a general malaise, so I asked my Magic 8 Ball. Its response was hazy...  ???

Great, so my recording of the VC is liable to be out of date and inauthentic… I hate knowing things like this.  :laugh:

I know, I hate it too! lol  But, hey, the most important thing is "Do you enjoy the recording(s)?"

Once I Figure out where I put my 2-CD set, I can see when the recording is from...  ::)  Need to catch up on filing!

The original/authentic version of the Grieg Piano Concerto, recorded by BIS, has 100s of differences (as far as I remember around 400) compared to the usual, popular version - yet it's quite rare that I notice much of it, during an average, admittedly not that concentrated, listening ... :)

Good point.  Something to think about....

It's true that often the differences are not that significant to anyone who isn't sitting there with a score.
