Thanks very much FW for the Elgar.

Nice to have the missing 8 measures of the octave section at Tempo I back.

And thanks to Jim for pointing out this piece.

Good afternoon!

Can anyone help with:

Holst Nocturne
Lambert Elegiac Blues

?

I'm also looking for suggestions for a single (maybe up to 7') piece by Bowen that may not yet have been recorded but which is rather stunning.

Also, any other early 20thC British pieces of similar dimensions that could do with a dusting down? I'm developing a programme/recording project.

Well my searching abilities require some polishing! I had a good luck but didn't find this (to me hidden) gem.

Thanks very much.

Elegiac Blues currently available from Chester as "print on demand".
Under Copyright in Europe (if you are still living in Poland?!).

But also available as pdf from alfor (will send it to your private e-mail address because of the aforementioned reasons).

All best

P.S. As I recently bought a grand piano, I am curious what you are using for study purposes and if there was any need
for acoustical adjustments of the room resp. thorough voicing of the instrument.
P.P.S. There are numerous interesting but neglected shorter pieces by Bax, Ireland and Bridge, but all have been recorded more than once.
Best regards, Alfor S. Cans

Dear Alfor

Many thanks for your offer. I noticed that the piece could be purchased, but not very easily by me given my geographical position. (Sometimes the postage costs more than the actual score!) I will probably order a copy to collect in September when I next visit the UK, but until then a preview would be very welcome.

I have a fairly recent (90s?) Foerster upright in our bedroom! It requires a bit more effort on the action than most uprights and has quite a full sound.

all very best wishes

Isokani

Foerster (Förster) is a very fine brand! During GDR times the quality deteriorated, but since the 1990s they are top quality again (I visited the factory in Saxonia in the 1990s). Effort on the action is pretty good, imho, because otherwise you may have problems to play properly on a concert grand.

This is the wrong thread to ask, but has anybody ever played the (Dale) Fandrich vertical action? This action was designed to play like a grand action: http://www.fandrich.com/index.php?PHPSE ... h%20action

Holbrooke's Fantasie Sonata No.1 Op.124 and Fantasie Sonata No.2 Op.128
are recent uploads to IMSLP. The trouble is, copyright issues appear to make
them unlawful to download in Europe for ten years.

What a dilemma for we Holbrooke fans in the UK, especially those of us who
have also contributed to that composer's piano repertoire. In theory, I would
break the law by downloading my own scans!

Apologies for the 'rampage' against the daft copyright laws!
