Not "wrong" exactly - both Stover (1977 and 2003) and Benites (1979) editions follow the 1942 MS which does give F natural. This F natural appears to be quite deliberate - with a finger 1 indication crossed out in favour of 2, facilitating the glissando to G sharp. Several other editions have appeared which are of little interest as they seem to be derived directly from Benites and/or Stover.Christopher Freitag wrote:Yes, but he has since changed it to an F natural after seeing the MS copies that I showed him. The Stover edition has it wrong.
The 1938 MS offers F sharp - using finger 3 for both it and the following G sharp.
I must say - to my layman's eye the calligraphy of the 1938 MS displays more similarity to other Barrios scripts whilst the 1942 looks immediately 'other". I don't know why Stover is so sure that the later one is authentic.
Do you have a copy of the "Paraguayan MS" Christopher and, if so, does it shed light or offer any other elements of interest?
