Hello friends and fellow musicians!
I have a really quick question regarding Chopin's Mazurka (No. 51) Op. 68, No. 4 in F minor. I was recently introduced to this marvelous piece and when I went to purchase the MP3 of it on Amazon I received a recording done by Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.
I then downloaded the sheet music for this piece from imslp.org:
http://imslp.info/files/imglnks/usimg/d ... _Op_68.pdf
Now, the MP3 that I purchased from Amazon and the sheet music that I downloaded from this site do not match up entirely. So, I purchased yet another version of this Mazurka (I'm assuming the original one) which is about 1 minute and 40 seconds shorter than the Michelangeli recording.
When going back over to Amazon and buying the "shorter version", I noticed yet another recording of this particular Mazurka that was done by Vladimir Ashkenazy, and it said next to the title "Revised version". And THAT, is my question(s):
Could someone please fill me in or provide me with a little more information regarding this "Revised version"? And as well, would someone please be kind enough to steer me in the right direction as to where I may be able to acquire the sheet music for this Revised/longer version of the Mazurka?
I really do love both versions ― long and short ― but would really like to be able to learn the Revised one if possible.
I so very much appreciate anyone's helpful insight regarding this beautiful piece, and I thank you so much for your time in reading this thesaurus-size post. =^ )
All the best,
