Skalkottas Bass Concerto

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by simandlesque, Dec 27, 2011.

  1. Hey all,

    Does anyone know where I can get the bass and piano parts for the Skalkottas?

    The only parts I've been able to find are through Margun (sheetmusicplus) and Schirmer. Margun isn't selling it anymore, and Schirmer only hires it out, orchestra parts and all.

    I'm not above a bootleg copy of the piece if I can't purchase it; I just want to learn the thing.

  3. That's what I thought, but when I ordered it from them last year, it took 3 months just for them to tell me my order couldn't be filled.

    I suppose I'll try again...

    *actually, it is completely unavailable for purchase; I remember seeing that before I posted this thread.

    Too bad. Can you get a library copy?

    It looks like Vassilis Papavassiliou recorded it..maybe get in contact with him? Keep us updated as to whether you're able to obtain the piece...it's definitely something I'd be interested in!

    Another reason why these pieces don't get played. Rental music of this sort is just stupid.
