The sheet music is on the Library of Congress website:

https://memory.loc.gov/ammem/smhtml/smhome.html

You can find it by doing a search on keyword "Gottschalk" (but be sure to select "search 1820-1860 and 1870-1885) and downloading each page as a TIFF image.  

Or, I have also made a PDF from these same pages which I would be happy to email you (it is a 1.5MB file).

Vanessa...Also Schirmer's library of musical classics has different volumes of Collected Works by Gottschalk for piano. Most music (piano) stores carry them. Out of curiosity, do you play many pieces by Gottschalk? I just asking, ask I dearly love his work, and he's one of my fav's. 3 of my favorite pieces are:
The Banjo, Fantasie grotesqu, Op. 15
L'Union (Paraphrase de Concert Sur les Airs Nationaux), Op.48
Bamboula, Danse de Negres, Op.2

Are you familiar with any of these, and if so, what do you think. Some of his are SOOO fast. I always say, my fingers "smile" when I play Gottschalk!

Does anyone else enjoy his music? I hardly ever see him mentioned in this forum?

Shag :)

The Library of Congress American sheet music site is great.  I have found a number of Gottschalk pieces there (Chant du'Soldat, Rayons d-Azur, Forest Glade Polka,  etc...) that I have not found elsewhere.

I also recommend the Dover edition of Gottschalk's piano music (26 works).  Dover editions are made to last forever, the print is large, and they are inexpensive also.

hi, Shagdac
no, actually, yesterday was my first time in my life heard of this awesome composer, i accidentally was listening to his song on KUSC.org. FM 91.5 in los angeles area. and i felt in love with this piece.  but i have never played any of his piece before. i am trying to learn this piece on my own, since i can't afford a piano teacher now.  ha, this is how i learn Chopin and beetoven's pieces.

i dont know if you never watched a movie called "The legend of 1900" a legend of a great piano player.  in one scene, in the dancing ballroom at midnight, the guy (Tim Roth) was playing this piece, i think. or it is similiar, and i wonder if it was made by Cottschalk too

i will try to listen to the pieces you were talking about. they must be great too.
