I have the two-volume edition. In what ways does it differ from his earlier Barrios volumes (generally speaking)?
Yes I remember looking at a couple pieces in both editions and the second one had some nearly impossible fingerings where the first one was quite manageable. It might be worth another look now that I've gotten a bit more playing time under my belt, and maybe I will be able to grasp why one might choose the more difficult fingering.
Yes the score layouts in the new 2 Volume Mel Bay edition are absolutely terrible. something about the larger music font and the way the sections of the pieces are organized just does not work. What a shame.David Norton wrote: ↑Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:16 pmThe two-volume set contains more pieces in total, which were found/recovered after the original four-volume set came out.
On the down side, significantly IMO, the two-volume requires a much heavier music stand, and is a hassle to use for playing. The older skinnier books don't cause this issue.
