Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to research and to upload all this fantastic music! I wish that I could repay you all in kind with music, etc. and perhaps some day I will have the resources but for now, again...many, many heartfelt thanks for all the hard work.

I´m reading about an interesting french teacher, composer and pianist. Charles-Wilfrid Bériot.
He was son of Charles-Auguste de Bériot (1802–1870) and María Malibrán (1808–1836).
There are some piano works in IMSLP but in this forum (http://www.unsungcomposers.com/forum/in ... 759.0.html) there are some other works. Anyone has the Sonate for two pianos Op. 61?

Interesting family, really!

Any help will be appreciated!
Hi there!

If no one has a copy here, it can be obtained from the Library of the University of Colorado Boulder.

Does anybody know where to get Alkan's first Fantasticheria in B minor, Impromptu F sharp major and the full score of Palpitamento? I asked for them at the french Alkan society but never got an answer...

Thanks for your help!

Best regards

Hi there
Alkan's Palpitamento is in manuscript in the Geneva Conservatoire. The librarian there Jacques Tchamkerten is very helpful if you wanted to get a copy made.
I don't know about the other two pieces off-hand, but I will ask an acquaintance of mine who has recorded both pieces.
Watch this space.

Amazing the things your learn here at Pianophilia. I am astonished to learn of unpublished Alkan.

These three Alkan pieces are available on the CD "Adventures with Alkan", played by the young British pianist Lloyd Buck, from whom I hope to hear more.

Some of our PianoPhiliacs will already be aware, but it appears the complete Op. 63 Études by Méreaux are to be released next year on the Acte Préalable label.

I wait eagerly to see if this project actually materialises, but one of the studies, played by pianist Artur Cimirro, is already available on YouTube here.
The pianist provides a well-considered article on the project here.

Irrespective of members' opinions of the music in question, I applaud any musician who takes up the challenge of such comparatively out-of-the-way repertoire. I hope more like-minded musicians come to the fore in the future.

Hello Members,
Does anybody have the score of Piano Sonata by Antoine Mariotte?

Thank you!
