Hahahah dude, my teacher ripped off a page of my WTC today.  And after only a couple minutes after opening the book for the first time.

Probably to save it from murder!  :P

You see, Bach and I just aren't meant to be!

Rach is best.

Of course Rachmaninoff is best! ;D



But ANYWAYS, just bought Rach 3 and Rach sonata 2 by Horowitz, a bunch of Carl vine, La Campanella by Yundi Li, and two Scriabin poemes from Valentina Lisitsa! :-* :-* :-*

I know on another thread I said I had Horowitz Rach 3 and sonata 2, but they were recordings from YouTube.

Ooooh hahaha I get it!  Carl Vine has like no music compared to everyone else, so to say 'A bunch of Carl Vine' is...  

Whatever dude..

But yeah, I'm listening to his second sonata for the first time and it's soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!

strongly considering adding this to my december performance line up. i know it's not really a 'Christmas song" (it's a super funny raging debate online actually if you consult dr. google, there's even a facebook page proclaiming how it isn't christmas music), but it is holiday music in the minds and hearts of many folks so it seems like a wonderful time to showcase it as it will probably be playing on radio stations and pumped through shopping malls etc.

had the score for a while but just picked up the mp3 file (usually var places sell the dl for anywhere from .89-1.69 US depending on artist, source/stie, etc) for audio for the tune so i can listen to the transcriber himself play it for my inspiration.  i need to start learning this yesterday....
score:

Rodgers & Hammerstein Transcriptions (Four Transcriptions for Solo Piano). By Oscar Hammerstein and Richard Rodgers. Edited by Stephen Hough. Piano. BH Piano. 32 pages. Josef Weinberger #M570050291. Published by Josef Weinberger (HL.48016406).
 
Contents: The Carousel Waltz (from Carousel) • My Favorite Things (from The Sound of Music) • Hello, Young Lovers (from The King and I) • The March of the Siamese Children (from The King and I).

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/Rodgers-Hammerstein-Transcriptions/4107311




am strongly considering getting the audio to his transcription of the Pabst (is it Paul or Pavel Ive seen it both ways all over)... Concert Paraphrase on Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty as he made some singificant changes to it and i've never heard the audio to it (i've got most the the Hough transcriptions, they're freakin great).

is it a kalmus score? i swear it's like the things have bad dandruss and the score pages are flakes, those stupid things refuse to stay together for me. i;ve spend more on clear packing tape to repair and tape the entire things than i did originally for the blasted things. refuse to buy another one of those black and white pieces of junk unless it is the ONLY one published and even then id prolly be better off printing the score off myself and binding it independently at a staples or other document shop!

don't bother with those yellow schirmers either. those are junk too but for different reasons.
if you struggle with JS Bach, i suggest one of the Alfred student editions , they tend to have very good conservative editing (and indicate where they have done ) and very good fingerings which is great at first until you get the hand of figuring out Bach fingerings (which i still struggle with. takes me forever and several revisions....)

I ended up going with Otaku. I emailed Anime Artbook asking about a special order. They seemed like a nice place to deal with, but it would have been nearly 100 dollars with shipping, and I really couldn't justify paying twice as much just for good service. I think I'll use them if/when I get the Kingdom Hearts Field & Battle book or any of the Final Fantasy books.

I look forward to it arriving! What, if anything yet, have you played from it? I think I'm going to start with The Door.

Since you seem to be the resident Vine expert, vat performer vould you recommend I look into for Vine recordings? Also, besides his sonatas, vat might I vant to get?

Yeah, this is my third Kalmus book.  My other ones are fine, but the pages started falling out of this one the first day I got them what the heck?!

Bach is freaking impossible... >:(

I have a copy of Bach's inventions and Sinfonias from Kalmus from my dad from a long time ago, this version...

...and it is an utter mess. I don't use it, since I have my own Henle copy (from before I found this lying around), but wowww, there are no pages attached, pretty much!

Then I also have a second copy of Mozart's sonatas from my dad, also Kalmus

And it is quite old yet still in flawless condition.

I guess Kalmus hates Bach just as much as you do.

or my dad just likes Bach and used it more than the Mozart

yeah the thing with otaku is that they're big time so for these 'lesser known' ones, the small shops that do not do that much volume get screwed on the wholesale side of it, the distributors and publsihers seems to really only want to help out the sup3er large volume dealers, which otaku is. anime artbook is still very competitive most of the time, and even when they are not matched or less, i have seldom payed more tha 5-10 more to use them, but the loyalty has paid off in that htey ahve gone to great lengths before to get me some very hard to find materials.

these selections are on hold (by circumstance not by choice) until i  can perform a handful of what i'm working on right now, i'm under the gun for 9-11 solo works right now so i need to get it down to at least half that, then make sure the remaining get ahead of schedule before i can even think adding anything else. it's going to be a very busy fall piano term.....(and i don't even plan on doing collaborative stuff which i normaly do a fair amount of!).

i like more and more of his piano/ensemble works as of late. i got to turn pages for a big chamber concert put through the big orchestra concert series here last spring (my teacher was pianist in the trio for clarinet piano and violin), man that was fun, it was hard to fight the urge to lose myself in the music and not miss some very fast moving music and tricky page turns!

good find on that man!

The Complete Preludes and Etudes for Pianoforte Solo by Dover $13.56

It was 20% off because SheetMusicPlus is having a 20% off piano method books (which includes etudes!), and I had a $10 SMP gift certificate, so I figured I might as well get something. I already have a Henle of opus 11, but I don't have any of the other sets of preludes and I don't have any of the etudes and Henle doesn't print anything except op. 11 (yet), and it was only $14 and oh, this is how I rationalize buying way more music than I'll ever have time to play :P

Julian Cochran. Five Mazurkas, piano solo (Complete Set)





"Cochran's music also has its roots in the great pianistic tradition of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He cites Liszt, Balakirev and Prokofiev as major influences. It's no surprise, then, to hear extreme virtuosity in some of these admirably concise and expertly-tailored compositions. Hearteningly, though, this virtuosity is always in the service of the music, rather than an empty display of flashy pyrotechnics. A fine example of this is the longest piece in the collection, Mazurka No. 2, which comes in at just under five minutes. In it, Cochran marries simplicity with virtuosity to stunning effect. " - Levon Parikian.

I purchased all five inspiring mazurkas by this gorgeous composer!

hit my my favorite 2nd hand music/book shop. picked up a simplified /'easy' piano version of this but it has chord symbos over the basic score so it should be fun to 'fill in in the blanks' . this stuff can be super hard to come by, also got a 'danzas' book but no image available of it anywhere and i have yet to photograph, I pretty much automatically buy anything "puerto rico' and piano, this is my third find of such material at this place, and each time it was 'by accident' i.e. 'mis filed' just came across it while browsing other stuff
 


also got a vintage 'new old stock' copy of this little gem. some really nice (and from the looks of it, kida hard in spots) arrangements. mainly bought it for the concert version of 'oh little town of bethlehem' as I am considering learning it for Christmas.


still in print

i got a heck of a deal, nice and old (i love old scores, something romantic about playing out of them) and only 2 bucks! shp has a good price considering how many pieces you get.

i didn't have enough money but next time i go (it will probably still be there, as some of that stuff is super dusty and seldom gets looked through) a durand edition (new 'old stock') of a vintage oversized copy of the Poulenc Suite Francaise, excited about getting it next time if it is still there.

...

I envy you people with second-hand music stores. All my town has is a Schmidt music (don't know if that's a thing in other parts of the country, but it's basically the big franchised company that employs people who know nothing about music except a few chords on guitar, maybe...they sell a very limited selection of advanced piano repertoire...mostly just Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven) so I buy everything on SheetMusicPlus. I'd look for used stuff on ebay, but the amount you pay in shipping generally cancels out any good deals you might get.

Speaking of which, I ordered this for Funérailles (I could've ordered it separately for much cheaper, but I figure, I might as well get the whole thing so I have more sightreading material and playing material).



and then I ordered this too (the title has "Virtuosite" in it, so I'll definitely be a virtuoso once I'm done! ;D )

I decided some years ago that life is simply not long enough to study everything, so I thought I would concentrate on works for piano and orchestra.

Some I play myself (if I can). Others if I think they are worthy and have not been recorded, are sent to record companies for consideration.

The preludes are full of great music! Definitely pick them up. I usually avoid Schirmer, but I have the Boosey & Hawkes and it seems to be pretty much identical to the Schirmer, and much more expensive.

figured since i paid/pay a [HEFTY] library fee that the access to the thousands of scores in the music library (some very old rare ones too) I might as well begin 'browsing' it rather than only utilizing when looking for something in particular or researching.

so i checked out a few gems today that i will probably archive for my own use (the library has copiers w scanners but they're  a pian to use so i may just take my time with my cheapy little scanner then convert them to pdf merged files at some later date).

this was quite the find, new release including some previously unpublished works.including the  piano sonata which i had been on the hunt for , for quite some time...

bought the mp3 album off of amazon so i have matching recordings to these works

Sonatinas Collection 1 Ongaku No Tomo Edition (Japanese Book).
It looked interesting and i love all things japan so i grabed it!
sonatinas by Takagui, Ikenouchi, Otaka, Yamada, Tsukatani, Okumura, Miyoshi, Hara.
Can't wait to add these to my collection. I've never seen this book, Imust have walked past this particular collection so many times and never saw it! (it's been in the library for years it seems, old score, not in the best condition cover wise but pages are clean).


Finally, I can't find this for sale anywhere by itself, it may have originally been a supplement to the volumes of the sonatas but the library had these in the Beethoven Sonatas Score section (thankfully it wasn't in the general collection or i would never have foudn them). Two volumes published by ABRSM  and edited by Barry Cooper of complete commentary and analysis including performance guidelnes and relevant info on the 32 Beethoven Sonatas. This will become a highlight of my archives, this information is so great to have for future reference when studying these sonatas.

I believe the same info might come with these new editions as an isbn search led me here

Also Rash but no cover pic  >:(  A surprisingly good price, though for a living composer.  :D

It's been on sale on Amazon for ages. Got mine months ago. Time to renew your hunting license?  ;D

ha ha yeah, its funny how some 'common' things can stay 'hidden' unless particularly looked for, even when they are not really rare lol. but the book is 'brand new' so i think it was a recent purchase for the library, and i frankly never went out of my way to look for berstein's solo music , though now that i have the full recordings (minus the newly published in this ed.), i really like what he does. it is certainly a lot more benign than what some of his contemporaries were churning out.

yeah i need to enroll in hunter's ed. course or something  :-\

... (the library has copiers w scanners but they're  a pian to use so i may just take my time with my cheapy little scanner then convert them to pdf merged files at some later date).

If you plan to do a lot of archiving, this may interest you.

I haven't made one yet, but it seems like an interesting project. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Yes. How much did each of them cost?

Also, do you already have his first sonata?
