Murray Grodner's comprehensive catalogue

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by gael, Mar 16, 2005.

  1. Found in Lemur's catalogue (books):

    Author : Murray Grodner
    Title : Comprehensive catalogue of music, books, recordings and videos for double-bass

    Anyone knows this ? Is it really interesting ? Does it really help to find lesser-known references ? Is it especially interesting for classical, baroque, modern ?

    Its far more comprehensive than anything else out there. Basically, its Mr. Grodner's efforts to somehow catalog all the published and extant materials on the double bass. It's a huge undertaking, and each edition has been more and more thorough. Some things still slip under the radar, but very little.

    Whether or not its worthwihle for personal use, that depends on your personality - it is basically like an enormous list of materials - not a text in any sense.
  3. It seems really interesting.
    Maybe you can tell me if I will find there all references to get orchestral
    material of DB concertos. For example, I want Vanhal, for hire, or to buy, original, etc... I want Lalo Schifrin? It seems like this book can help me ?

    It is very comprehensive in listing publishers/sources for scores, as well as contact info for those scores.
