Beethoven Variations op.34

Postby HonkyTonk » Mon May 12, 2014 4:40 pm

I have been looking at the composer's manuscript (reproduced at this site) and was surprised to see that the 3rd variation has what certainly seems to be an "alla breve" sign at the beginning. None of the older editions that I know give this and I was wondering if any of the more recent Urtext editions reproduce it or comment on the matter. Can anybody help on this point?
The alla breve (cut common time) marking would certainly seem to suggest a more flowing interpretation than the usually-given common time signature does.

The Wiener Urtext Edition (UT 50024 c 1960) has alla breve at 3rd variation.
