Have anyone used INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COMPANY editions ?
« on: November 08, 2016, 03:34:41 PM »
Hi, I know this publisher is based on US.

Im trying to seek out more information on whether this publishers' editions are reliable.

I personally have used their Moszkoswski Op 72 Etude for college exams and I'm trying to find sources to get it. Does anyone know where i can get this online ?

Thank you so muchhhh :)

I have no idea about the reliability but the editions are traceable through International Music Company website--  a google search shows that International Music Corp is also known as bournemusic

You can place individual orders if you can't find another source

Sheetmusicplus.com sells their editions, but not this particular one

Yes, their editions are pretty good. Actually many of them are facsimile reproductions of older editions, often with editorial additions (fingering etc.). The Moszkowski you mention doesn't appear to be a reproduction of the Enoch edition so it may have been re-typeset by IMC. It's edited by Isidor Philipp, who died in 1958: the IMC ed'n has a copyright date of 1963 which makes me wonder if some other publisher had this edition first. Anyway, Philipp was a respected pianist and editor.
