David Drinkell Posted April 2, 2018 Share Posted April 2, 2018 The version of Jehan Alain's 'Ballade en mode phrygien' available on IMSLP is the Leduc edition and gives registration: Recit Hautbois, Positif Bourdon 8 Flute 4, Pedale Soubasse, with the chordal middle section on Voix Humaine. After this, Cromhorne instead of Hautbois for a few bars. There's a performance on YouTube of this version: However, there's another performance (same player and instrument) using the Barenreiter edition. the registration is completely differen:t Right hand: Gross Nazard+Bourdon 8'; Left hand: Gambe, Flute octaviante 4, Plein Jeu. The middle section: Bourdon 8'+Flute 4'. There is also Flute Harmonique 8' on G.O. with Positif coupled to it for the last 6 notes of that section (Lento), played with the right hand. Any opinions on which, if either, is "right"? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
