Jack, I take it that she did a modern edition, mostly, particularly adding modern fingerings. It is interesting that you talk about sight reading. I hope to use the book for that. I ordered it yesterday from the USA, and it might take two months until it arrives here in Germany. Annoying! But surely worth the wait.

Great to know, Anne.  I'm so glad to hear about the Rachel Barton DVDs! It's about time that these are recorded, no?

Hi Jack, Beth, and everyone!

Merry Christmas to all of you from me, too.

You know that I am a big fan of Rachel Barton Pine. She has brought out Volume 1 of Foundation Studies by Wohlfahrt, presumably starting with the simple ones. It comes with a DVD of her playing all of them. Here is a link to her playing one of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuSI6t54KWY. Todd Ehle (Professor V) also has some tutorials on Wohlfahrt at http://www.youtube.com/user/professorV#grid/user/C87D94AE592BC324.

I know that that is not what you have been asking for, but perhaps it can tie you over until Beth gets down to this project.

I'm glad you're working from that book. I think all her books are brilliant. Your request is duly noted ; )
