Does anyone have a copy of Stephen Heller's op 7 impromptus? I have just found a performance of them on Japanese youtube channel but I cannot find the score at the usual sources to download or buy. :)

was this score ever found? Worldcat only shows 1 copy at Danish Royal library.

Never seen this op.7.
A comment about it from the time it was just played in concert by Heller himself :

Hi musiclife, parsonstreet and Jean-Séb,

You will also find a copy of this work in the catalogue of the Südwestdeutschen Bibliotheksverbundes and the Catalogo del Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale, Italy.

Thank you for this information! It seems the Op. 8 Rondo-Scherzo was nicely recorded also, but, alas, no score, either! I can't seem to find a good catalogue record of this one, too. Hmmmm…

It would be nice to move Heller out of the 'etude composer' category....

Hi musiclife

I find the Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog (KVK) an excellent resource. I found 6 separate records for this piece including at the British Library, French National Library and Italian Union Catalogue. :)

Good luck in your search.
