Authentic or inauthentic score?
I have a PDF of what appears to be an authentic Prokofiev score scanned in from a paper manuscript. On closer inspection, I have found an unmistakable error. Is there a reason someone would do this deliberately? File here: http://petruccilibrary.ca/files/imglnks/caimg/0/0c/IMSLP00347-Prokofiev…
Right at the top of page 19, there's the error. The melody is in the Bassoon part, the well-known Grandfather theme. The four accented notes should all be F-sharp. Instead, there are three D-sharp followed by one F-sharp. Then, in the middle of the page, the restatement of the theme has the correct four notes.
What gives? Does anyone want to field this?
