The New Concept: Scores for All Stages of Learning

On the recent Music Education Expo in London, Piano Street presented a new concept for sheet music publication. Depending on your own level of experience and where you are in the learning process of a particular piece, you may need fingering, pedal markings, practice and performance tips, or perhaps the right opposite - a clean Urtext score.

why not just use "I am the very model of a modern major general"? It's the same thing, basically, and I'm sure SOMEONE here has it.

Brendel Plays and Introduces Schubert – 5 DVD Set

Alfred Brendel is an outstanding modern exponent of Schubert’s piano music. He is capable of bringing not only the verve of this music but also its poetic intensity and intellectual depth to life with a special vibrancy. In this unique collection – a 5 DVD box (on Naxos) at a very attractive price – he plays all of Schubert’s major works for keyboard and introduces each piece, throwing light on its compositional substance and at the same time revealing his own highly personal relationship with these masterpieces of Romantic music.

Yes, but if you wish to perform the song like Tom, they are pretty useless and are really for playing it solo rather than as an accomp.  It's in C major and that's about all you need to know...I realised this when I saw the music. 
Listen to his accompaniment, it's very simple and you will probably be able to pick  out the notes and chords.  The simplicity allows maximum concentration on the words.  The only other helpful thing on the music was the instruction at the beginning which says 'as fast as possible'.

If you still want the notes, pm me with your e-mail and I'll scan them to you.
