Well, I am sure you could find some of those at an out-of print book store, try abebooks.com (I can't think of any others at the moment so type something like "rare and out of print books" in a search engine and it should come up with some more online stores. Have you tried sheetmusicplus.com (you probably have)? um...oh!!!!!!!! You can find the arensky (the piano part at least, I think there is also a orchrestral reduction that can be played by a second piano that comes with it) at musicminusone.com. Music minus one scores (again I think it is just the solo piano part and an orchestral reduction which I think would do just fine if you aren't performing it with an orchestra, for the time being at least) come with a CD with the concerto played up to speed with the orchestra and piano soloist and then up to speed without the soloist so you can play the solo part along with the CD. And then there is a second CD with the soloist and without (like the first CD) except it is slower (until you get comfortable with the concerto, the fingerings ect...) and then you can progress to the up-to-speed CD. If you have any questions about musicminusone.com refer to that website or you could also e-mail me at DLL11211989@aol.com or just add another post (why am i telling you this?, of course that what you do when you have questions..........)

you can find the arensky at this website:

(copy and paste it into your URL thingy...i don't know how to add a link to a post...)

Um....

Signed,

well...the only MMO edition I have is of the paganini rhapsody by Rach and it has only a few fingered passages but I think that is because Rach didn't provide hardly any fingerings for it but it does have some fingering suggestions from the editors. These editions come in a glossy folder with artwork on the cover, when you open it on the right hand side are the CD's in two pockets and on the other side is the music, which is seperated from the folder (i.e. not connected to it) um.........the cover of the music is kinda think and cheap (probably recycled) but the music inside is printed on nice opaque paper, the book opens flat on the music stand thingy. Again, I'm not sure if what the fingerings will be like for the Arensky, but they are good quality editions for the most part (you might want to have your local library order it for you if they allow that sort of thing and you can check it out before purchasing it)

Sauer concerto no.1

https://joell12068.zftp.com/sauer_concerto1_1.pdf

https://joell12068.zftp.com/sauer_concerto1_2.pdf

https://joell12068.zftp.com/sauer_concerto1_3-4.pdf

Sauer concerto no.2

https://joell12068.zftp.com/sauer_concerto_no2.pdf

The others I don't have, except I think I may have Kullak's C minor concerto.  This one is not a pdf, its a djvu file which is opened by LizardTechs djvu browser plug-in.  If I find the Kullak, I'll post it later.
