    Hey to all (i'm new to talkbass)Just a couple of quick questions. Whilst on the site http://www.oase.udk-berlin.de/~mwolf/stream_students.html i heard a recording of the first movement of Frantisek hertl's sonata. does anyone know of any sites to order the sheet music of this from on the net? i've searched for this and for the tubin concerto, but can't seem to find either... :( Also, if anyone knows the piece "extreme" by lajos montag could they give a comparison in terms of difficulty to say, the bottesini Elegy in D major or the Eccles Sonata? (weird comparison, probably, but theyre the only pieces even remotely challenging that i can play, and alll i've heard of Extreme is a clip on amazon. cheap, i know) Any help would be very much appreciated.

    The extreme is significantly more difficult than the eccles. Its a neat piece and definately a worthwhile technical exercise.

    They sell the tubin concerto at the Juilliard Bookstore. It was edited by Zimmerman.

    sorry about this, but a few months on, after many computer niggles, email changes and the like which, made corresponance difficult, it seems that the Juilliard bookstore are after all unable to get the tubin for me. so now i see no other option than to order from this site http://www.me4u.biz/index.php3?sc=14 under the classical music section. does this seem obviously il/legal to anyone? i really don't see another option.
