Our Editions

The majority of our programmes feature music for which there are no modern editions; as such, we endeavor to make our performing editions available on the public domain.

These stay as true to the original sources as possible, refraining from the clutter of prescriptive figured-bass marks and realisations in order to preserve clarity and readability, and leave the performer room for interpretation.
