Hi guys...I have Otis Murphy's and Koryun Asatryan's recordings of Borne's Carmen Fantaisie, but they are slightly different (??i have only briefly listened through them). Does anyone know what editions they are playing, if in fact different?

I see one on Dornpub, does anyone know if this is one of those? Also on June Emerson in the UK, which lists Borne/Roth/Meylan as the composers.
Thanks for any info.

Otis Murphy played this piece on his recital here at my school last year. After hearing it, I ran over to dorn's website and ordered it. After listening to it, I realized they were both in completely different keys. So I know that the dorn version and Otis's versions are different. I have the recording by Koryun, but I'm not sure if it's different. The biggest thing I noticed in both of their recordings, was there was altissimo, but there's not really any in my version of the piece.

I performed the one Mr. Murphy recorded at my senior recital this year. I purchased it from Broekmans. I believe they are in the Netherlands, but I received it in the US with no trouble.

In fact, the publication listed on June Emerson is Kunzelmann Musikverlag.
Also, there is, at least, a third recording of that piece: by Daniel Gauthier, on his CD "Spirito Latino" on the MDG label.

I have the Otis Murphy recording and the Daniel Gauthier recording. They sound like they're in the same key.

The only difference I can hear (aside from some large differences in tempi) is that there is one section that Otis Murphy plays that Gauthier does not. In Gauthiers, the piano plays the melody for a short section with no saxophone, but Otis Murphy plays it in his recording. The section is in both recordings, but it's played on piano in one ans saxophone in the other.

Aside from that, they sound incredibly similar.

I think it's a transcription of a flute piece, originally.

I've noticed that too. I don't have the music with me right now to verify what section it is, but I remember listening to Mr. Murphy's recording with the music in hand and there is a section that he plays that is not written in the saxophone part. If my memory serves me right, he is doubling the melody (with the piano obviously) during that particular section.

Gauthier, Murphy, and Asatryan all recorded the Roth/Meylan edition. Available from Eble. I think this is the best one.

So the edition available from June Emerson is the Roth/Maylen that Murphy, Gauthier and Asatryan have recorded?

When I saw him perform this, he turned away from the audience and played into the piano, so maybe he just liked this part enough to play along with the piano?
