Talk:Fantasie sur un air de F. Schubert, Op.21 (Boehm, Theobald)

Flute Part / Flute Part - original

I noticed some inconsistencies in articulations here and there - so I checked carefully with the piano part. It has it's own inconsistencies too, but I was able to conclude fairly certainly what was intended. Nevertheless I have included the original for those interested in comparing.

Theobald Boehm, Op.21

These parts have been scanned / cleaned and then extensively retouched. The condition of the original was somewhere between 'poor' and 'terrible'. The yellowed paper was easily handled by the scanner exposure, but the printing was very uneven. Perhaps due to worn printing plates, many of the thinnest line segments - stems - symbols - text - were often missing. I retouched these with a graphic editor. I did not retouch the flute line on the piano part - enough of it is there for the accompanist to read.
Trivia - this is one of the few works I have seen that has 256th notes. See page 9 of the piano part, in the flute line. Unfortunately the copyist just represented these as 16ths in the flute part :-(

When you say original flute part I don't think that means what you think it means. This is a 1860s edition and the work was published originally probably in the 1830s; that no editor is credited does not mean no editor intervened or even perhaps intervened thoroughly. Without comparison with the original Farrenc-published score or better-best still, Boehm's manuscripts, it's hard to say how much. Eric 13:11, 17 November 2013 (EST)
