Tosca

Does anyone know of a reduction of Tosca that is larger than the McConathy 2/1/2/1-2/2/1/0, but substantially smaller than the original 3/3/3/3-4/3/3/1? Thoughts? Advice?

Re: Overrated, Overused, Overdone, underrated etc.

Goldberg Variations is the most perfect piece of music ever composed, or at least very close to it. What's wrong with the Glenn Gould performances? I think they're fantastic.

Re: Composer Work Lists

More information is better, but we can't let the lists get too cluttered. The sort of "generally accepted format" is the CTKDFGN format.

You can always buy it from Ricordi. They have a nice vocal score edition.
