An invaluable edition (imho; of course Mr. Netherlands knows better):
Beethoven PC 5 ed. d'Albert.pdf

Page 17:
Playing octaves „mit eingezogenen Fingern“, i.e. with the tips of the middle fingers
touching your palm (more or less), was not only a specialty of d'Albert,
but also of Busoni (see the attached picture) and a couple of other
pianists of the past.

Wonderful, Alfred! I was hoping you'd find d'Albert's edition of the Emperor and here it is. Very important comments contained within, too. d'Albert's interpretation as shown in this edition has not aged one bit.

I don't know what advantage playing octaves „mit eingezogenen Fingern“ gives, but it's sure too late for me to learn this technique! :D

Am sure this edition is much appreciated by all us lovers of this best-of-all concertos.

How could I possibly disagree with an authority alfor?

Seconded!! I just tried but it seems that I can't master this...

Anyway, thanks very much for this insightful edition Alfor.

I'm surprised that anyone would bother to transcribe this. Most violinists I know could easily do this right off the piano score. Amazing what publishers will come up with sometimes! :D

Not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but there is an interesting volume digitized at Gallica including a large number of short works written in dedication to the memory of Beethoven.
Includes miniatures by Liszt and Henselt amongst a host of other names, many of which I've never heard of (hence my interest).

Sorry to trouble the forumers.

Schirmir seems to come out with a ONE VOLUME (really thick) Beethoven's 32. I think the volume is Schirmir 2103. Unfortunately, the book in my country was shrink-wrapped, and the shop will not open it (alas, this is not a typical music shop).

I am just curious, if anyone may have the copy, tell me which edition is it? Their "urtext" or Bulow-Lebert or is it any other edition.

No need the scan, I only like to know the edition.
Thank you.

It appears to be the old Bulow-Lebert combined into one volume.
