No. 6, ed. by Gao.

Hi. I'm just curious to know what editorial changes Gao made to no. 6 which until now prevented it being posted on this site. Did he edit just no. 6 and not the others? And was it just a bit of fingering, phrasing, and the like - or quite extensive changes? Thanks. M.J.E. 12:20, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes, he only edited No.6 - it's clearly marked on the first page of the score (they were all published separately, and collected into one volume by Masters). The editorial changes include not only extensive fingerings and probably some original dynamics and so forth, but also a large number of ossias. His version of the piece is, essentially, geared towards rendering it more easily playable to the less experienced performer. I felt that the score differed too much from the original version (Villa-Lobos never put in anything like that for his piano works) to upload as-is, and therefore decided to make my own (much simpler and shorter) edition.
