Misc. Comments

  • edited by Friedrich Hermann
  • first issue: 1898 according to plate number, 1899 according to HMB
  • Nos 1 to 18 and No 20 transcribed from David's Die hohe Schule des Violinspiels
  • Another viola version of no 2 (La Folia) by Konyus (Conus) is available on IMSLP here
  • No 19, edited by Gevaert, is not in the David series. It may be a version of the Handel Gm Sonata HWV 368 which is No.55 in the Alard-Dessauer Les Maîtres classiques du Violon series. The Alard-Dessauer viola version (untransposed) is here.
  • Nos 21 and 22 were issued in 1931 and 1932 edited by Paul Klengel (1854-1935).
  • Practical note: Violists will find that this is literally "high" school in the sense that most of them are transposed up a 5th, using David's original piano accompaniments. They are therefore quite difficult and un-violistic. Compare the two versions of the Vivaldi violin sonata in A: the high version from this series and the lower violin-fingered version by Paul Klengel.
