Re: [PDF] Debussy, Claude - Preludes Book 2 No. 3 La Puerta del Vino
LATE EDIT 24 Oct 2017: There is a SERIOUS ERROR in my revision of 8th Oct, which remains unresolved in my post of 20th Oct.
I had refingered the B# in MEASURE 84 to make it playable, but have only just noticed that in all 3 versions submitted to Delcamp (and in a further 11 versions, unsubmitted, being work in progress) that the problem was not in my original fingering at the sixth position, but that the B# should in fact read G#, which is very easy to play at the CVI. My initial playing of the piece was from my own handwritten manuscript, in which Measure 84 was indeed correct. But I rested the piece and have only just come back to it, enjoying playing it from Bernhard’s beautiful engraving, but I was too hasty with my posting of 8th Oct!
I was off my guard, having lost my copy of the piano original. I have now replaced it and checked every single note, rest, and fingering. All OK. As author, arranger, and proofreader, I accept full responsibility for my inadequacy in not spotting this earlier, and for my idiotic post of 8th Oct.
I do believe that this piece is useful addition to the guitar repertoire. The player has a choice now of three versions, mine, playable but I believe to be as close to an urtext version as is possible in a transcription, a very beautiful version by Carles Trepat, which is not quite as close to Debussy's text, and an interesting version using a five-finger right hand technique, by Charles Postlewate, buried somewhat out of sight in his volume "Homage to Villa-Lobos".
The corrected measure is shown below.
