I started with a new teacher last week, and we started with Simandl. When he saw that I had the Sankey edition, he got a kind of pained look on his face and asked if it would be too much trouble for me to get the Peters edition instead. I said, "of course not", but it left me wondering - just how many of the fingerings did Sankey change, and in what ways are the approaches fundamentally different? My first teacher had me studying out of Rabbath, and I liked that approach a lot - it just kind of made sense to my hand most of the time. I've been practicing out of the Sankey Simandl lately (while waiting for the Peters edition to arrive), and I notice that a lot of the fingerings are contrary to what my hand wants to do. Granted, I have very little experience with traditional technique...can anybody shed any light on this subject?
