The P&Fs and the Polka are the DSCH version; the preludes are the International Music Co version (as were the P&Fs I've lost  >:( ) .

Poulenc Nocturnes are Heugel, Improvisations are Salabert (which I haven't encountered before), Suite and Impromptus are Chester.

Holllllllly cow you've been buying a lot lately! Good choices though. The couple things I have from Baerenreiter are great quality, probably my favorite publisher now. And Janacek is great, the sonata and In the Mists especially.

The P&Fs and the Polka are the DSCH version; the preludes are the International Music Co version (as were the P&Fs I've lost  >:( ) .
I wasn't aware IMC printed the P&Fs...did they stop? And jeeez DSCH is so expensive! Crazy.

Haha, all too true.  8)

And I forgot to mention the Lady GaGa Fugue.

DSCH is expensive, and tbh not all that great in terms of quality. If got the two Shostakovich Sonatas from them and they are just adequate.

Don't know if IMC still do the P&Fs, couldn't see them anywhere. The ones I lost are older than you so they may have stopped.

Haha, I'm in the pink. (actually, the Barenreiter was slightly cheaper, I think, and I've dealt with the supplier before with no problems (save as below))

This one cost a small fortune. The binding sucks and the print quality is not the best, but can't wait to get my hands on some of these...

Given the amount of Scarlatti you already have, to get the rest you basically have two options. Buy the complete set from Heugel & Cui (10 Vols at $130-180 per volume) or get this:

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/Haydn-Scarlatti-The-Complete-Keyboard-Sonatas-Version-2-0/7868037

For $20 and print out the ones you're missing.

Hey - you might even get to like Haydn too.  ;)

For some reason I have never been interested in him... Can't really say I don't like him, just never bothered to find out...

I could of course print out sheets even for free, but I am so totally disorganized with sheets, I much prefer books. Self binding sucks too because you cannot really stack them...And I don't mind having different versions, with my memory I can take a sonata that I already played from another book and think it's a new one  ;D

Might still get the cd though, thanks for the tip!

lol ..chopin 10/1..   2 minute arpeggio study..  the usual prerequisite for a 40 minute elephant concerto.

I don't really expect it'll make me cry, my usual response is more of increased motivation than a sense of defeat. I actually feel like most frustrating thing will be in relation to maintaining appropriate tempo so that I can stick with the orchestra recording after the piano only stretches..   limits interpretive variation in the cadenza spots.

And


i think the only folks selling that are over in your neck of the woods...have looked all over in my part of the world, no luck. -if you bought online, can you provide a link?

i did see used copy of the rhapsody i just started for sale in the uk but it was prohibitively expensive (his works in general are very pricey, worth it imho in the long run i just couldn't swing it financially so I had to settle for the scan from your national library's angew archive).

i have posted recordings to my soundcloud to help folks discover these incredible works.
https://soundcloud.com/scriabinoff/sets/roy-agnew-sonata-legend-and

i do hope you'll study these someday.
i hope to pony up to these someday too.

note, agnew himself on both the recordings (see notes), i need to ascertain somehow the date of the playingof one of them (and only 95% certain of agnew being the pianist of the first recording the information is hard to come by....), one is from 1943. more agnew to come later, i have a huge final exam tomorrow and i need to get to bed asap. i only logged in to comment on your incredible purchase

(mad props on the schott grainger set, incredible body of work, on my hit list, i scanned that whole thing from the university library a while back to hold me over in the meantime...)

Not strictly "chamber" ensembles..

I've played in a wide variety of ensembles though..  from rock bands, to jazz trios, to big bands, concert bands, in the orchestra pits for theater shows, as an accompanist for choirs and other soloists, classical guitar ensembles..  i was also the percussionist in a full symphony orchestra for a bit (a local amateur one)

Nice, so is there a Chopin concerto no 1 orchestra track? I need it. Ive played in Bands as well and accompanied, but not much , more than that. I actually have super sensitive ears and probably would not want to be near an orchestra...

Actually, got them from the UK

http://sheetmusicwarehouse.co.uk

They were a bit pricey, but the only local copies I could find "might" have actually existed, were a signed limited edition of the Sitsky edition of the complete sonatas and had a price of "POA". I didn't.  

These were about 20 quid each, so not exactly cheap, but certainly more reasonable.

Agnew did a complete recording of all his piano works in 1943 for the ABC. If it's from then (and has dodgy sound quality to boot) it's probably him.

Nice, so is there a Chopin concerto no 1 orchestra track? I need it. Ive played in Bands as well and accompanied, but not much , more than that. I actually have super sensitive ears and probably would not want to be near an orchestra...

lol there was certainly a few aural issues at times playing with an amateur orchestra, with new works..  you couldn't always rely on everyone to practice, so sometimes it took a few weeks for things to settle in. It was always fun though, it was like once a week rehearsals and everyone would go out for drinks afterward.

I also liked how you could put your name forward to conduct..

for your concerto..

..because the rach 3 is on the concerto list?

not that I'm big on competitions, but if I was I don't think I'd choose that for the concerto.

No, because you mostly get to choose your rep list!
