Any help to fill the holes on the missing Etudes is much appreciated.
Some of them are available as scanned reproductions from the French national library e.g.
Op.122: https://catalogue.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/cb430842362

If I'm not mistaken, this 37pp score would cost 25.9 €
Thank you, will check with the group before ordering.

Hi,

I am very very interested in getting the 6 sonatas of FRANCOIS-ADRIEN BOIELDIEU.

I will be grateful if someone can upload the score.

They all appear to be on IMSLP, incorrectly filed under collections:

Apparently they uploaded some manuscripts of unpublished works by ye good olde Alkan! A true festival for every fan of Alkan's music! I'm talking about two (unfortunately) unfinished pieces: Appassionato for piano and an Etude for Pedalier both in D major.

Also there are two orchestral works, Cantatas in particular: Hermann & Ketty and L'entrée en loge.

Again check this out for yourself if you are interested and to verify the sources!


Alkan - Appassionato.pdf


Alkan - Étude pour piano.pdf
I'm only now seeing this. I, too, was delighted to discover these digitizations at Gallica earlier this year. Just one note re the 'Appassionato', this is actually a draft or copy of the first part of the composer's 'Délire', from the Esquisses, Op.63, No.29. ;)

As to the pédalier étude, it seems decidedly odd. Although appearing conventional enough on the page, I found the harmonizations to be very out of character for the composer. BUT this could be my own failings as a transcriber of course!
