I was just randomly buying sheet music a couple of weeks ago and I picked up a copy of Telemann's Concerto in G Major for viola and orchestra - the Schirmer's Library edition by William Primrose. I listened to the piece on CD when I got home and found the slow movements very simple and lovely, so when I looked at the music I was gutted to find that Primrose has added a lot of ornamentation as he sees fit, rather than just suggesting it and leaving it up to the violist themself. I don't want to just do Primrose's interpretation of this piece, so I'm annoyed - his version seems very twiddly, and I would struggle to play it and anyway I prefer my music to sound simple and elegant!
Bah!! Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Can anyone suggest a good edition? I can't even pick out Telemann's original melody in the first movement, so it's difficult to try to work around.
