Op 7 no 1 was formerly in the ABRSM Grade 8 syllabus.
The Simrock Edition is based on the 1925 Benjamin Edition, edited by Martin Frey. The editing, if any (see Op 8) appears to be mostly confined to pedalling, fingering, and repetition of the LH figure detail in no.3.
Those in possession of the Simrock edition may care to note the following differences in the 1959 Collected Edition.
The pedalling indication is simply con ped. Some individual pedal marks are given to indicate that a note in the bass is to be held: these are on the second beat of bars 5 and 6, and at the beginning of bars 17, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 45 and 46. There is an additional (con Ped.) at the start of bar 21. Bar 50 indicates that the pedal should be held over the last three notes of the LH.
The only fingerings given in the 1959 edition are for the LH in bars 47-48.
The first 6 pedal marks are present, after which bar 3 has sempre con Ped. There are further pedal marks at the following places: bars 4 and 6, on the sf with a release mark before the rest; start of bar 5; 2nd beat of bars 10 and 12; 3rd beat of bar 14; start of bar 17; start of bar 25; the two low notes of bar 26; start of bars 41, 42 and 47; the two low notes of bar 48; start of bars 49 and 50; start of bar 79 with a release mark before the 3rd beat of bar 80.
The only fingerings in the 1959 edition are those indicated below for bar 75.
The pedalling is mostly consistent between the two editions.
There is additional fingering in the Simrock edition. However quite a lot of the fingering in replicated in the 1959 edition.
