Talk:Morceaux de fantaisie, Op.3 (Rachmaninoff, Sergei)

The composer revised Melodie and Serenade in 1940. These editions are missing.

[New comment - previous comment was unsigned.] These are available here:
I don't have the band-width to copy them across, at least now - but it's easy enough to find them there. (This site as a whole is well worth examining for lots of music, especially by Russian composers.) M.J.E. 18:11, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

I see someone has now put those pieces here - thanks for that. M.J.E. 19:08, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Serenade arranged by Godowsky?

I've just been looking at the last score listed on this page, which is the Serenade supposedly arranged by Godowsky; but it is just the same file as one listed higher up, which is just the original (1892) version of the piece. The score bears no indication that it has been arranged by Godowsky, and it looks to be the same version as yet another different file of this piece, near the top of the page. (The two files are different typesettings, but look to me to be exactly the same version of the piece.)

So did Godowsky arrange the piece, or not? In any case, the version currently here may be wrongly labelled as arranged by Godowsky, and may need to be changed - or deleted, considering that it just duplicates an earlier file. I'd do it myself, only I'm not quite sure how to, and not sure if I have permission to do this. (Is it like Wikipedia? Anyone who sees an error or anything that needs to be filled in can correct it?)

Digital transfer vs Restoration (2. Prélude)

The digital transfer sounds better for some reason. It seems that Reeder made a better job by just transferring it than Varney did by restoring it. --Funper 03:05, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree. I think the restoration ended up destroying some of the original recorded sound. Carolus 03:13, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
