6 Flute Quintets, G.419-424 (Op.17) (Boccherini, Luigi)
Scores and Parts
Paris: De la Chevardière, n.d.(ca.1775).
Quintet in D major, G.419 (No.1)
Stanley Sadie (1930-2005)
London: Musica Rara, 1965. Plate M.R. 1079a
From the uploader's library. Editor's preface removed. There is no fundamental difference in the editorial approach for this edition compared to the Haas edition below. True, there is a preface, but contrary to what S.Sadie states the "smaller type" adopted for non original markings is not applied rigorously. In the sample flute page for instance, the original D (for dolce) is entered unnecessarily in smaller type as P dolce. Appoggiaturas are realized correctly and in full, and editorial intervention across the board is restrained, which is, after all, a good thing.
Quintet in G major, G.423 (No.5)
Quintet in E♭ major, G.424 (No.6)
Karl Haas (1913–2005)
London: Novello & Co., 1960.
From the uploader's library. Stained cover page cleaned. An interesting edition when compared with the De la Chevardière's publication : original additions there are, but very few in number : on page 1, taken as an example, some bowing modifications, a few expression marks and phrasings, the letters R and D replaced by rinf. & dolce, but the appogiaturas are not realized except as footnotes. Unfortunately, the editor did not pursue his efforts to the point of prefacing his edition. Stanley Sadie edited the same work around the same period (Musica Rara Publication).
