Editions

Below are links to editions of various compositions that I have prepared in connection with performances and research. In some cases these are pieces that I have performed; others are obscure compositions mentioned in the scholarly literature for which I needed scores but could not find usable editions, if at all. Most of the scores listed below were not intended to serve as critical editions, although some include commentaries about sources and readings. They are listed alphabetically by composer. Pieces are for solo keyboard if not otherwise designated.
