  • Editor's Choice

Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).


Editor's Choice

The 'Ghost' Sonata here is actually a duet part which greatly helps with the understanding of the harmony when preparing this difficult piece. Gary Schocker has produced a 'teaching edition' which can obviously be used either as a starting point for further discussion of style or played as printed. Either way this is a valuable addition to the plethera of publications of this work and (for what this is worth) it is my edition of choice.

From the front cover:

'This edition was prepared with one ear toward polyphany and the other toward my (modern) flute. That is, these articulations and dynamics help bring out the inherent counterpoint and make the Bach Sonata feel easier to play.'
