Carl Tausig-Ungarische Zigeunerweisen; i cant find the sheet music for this song anywhere.  >:( . . .

Oh how could I have missed out this fantastic Tausig showpiece! Brilliantly played by Josef Lhevinne on Ampico Piano-roll reproduction (although he skipped the slow Introduction).

And I have the complete score, albeit a Xerox copy I got from Great Britain during my undergraduate years.:)

oh i also forgot to mention Scriabin's Vers le Flamme. How could I have forgotten that one?  ;)

PeterHK, I would greatly appreciate if you could upload or send me a pdf file of Tausig's piece.

Hi synesthetichord,

The making of pdf files is not possible on my computer because I do not have Acrobat (I do have Acrobat Reader, but that is good only for reading pdf, not producing).

But it would be possible for me to scan the sheet music to produce GIF image files - but then you have to wait for at least 2 days because (a) the scanning and re-scaling of the images will take time, and (b) my computer has just gone haywire and I need to fix it before I can do any work. I am right now using my housemate's computer to type this message.

Dont worry about making the files in a hurry; im going on a trip in a couple of days and might not have access to a computer for about  a month.

For me, I always though Lecuona's Malaguena was really powerful. After I finish playing it, I go, wow, that was immense... Also, Wilde Jagd by Liszt really has a strong power.
