Works by Chopin—Facsimile Edition, A IV/59/3/2. Warsaw, 2019. Oblong, 28 x 22 cm, 2 vols, 4, 47 pp. Full-color halftone of the “rejected public autograph” (a careful comprehensible rendering of the piece put aside for some unknown reason). This version is written in the original key of G minor, with differences in melodic and rhythmic details from the published version, including a 4-bar section before the coda that was ultimately scrapped. This rare ms passed into Ferdinand Hiller possession after Chopin’s death (thus the inscription p[our] Mr. Hiller”), and later into the Musik-Bibliothek Peters as is evidenced by stamps in the ms. Comparison of this source with the British Library copy (no.22 of this series), reveals a lot about Chopin’s compositional practice. Commentary (Pol-Eng-Ger-Sp-Fr-Jp) by Jeffrey Kallberg. Bound in blue linen, with matching slipcase. $69
