My biggest problem (as Malcolm could tell you) is that I have a huge collection but, since I moved to a smaller house (through necessity) a couple of years ago, I have a problem finding the scores. There is just too much music for me to go through to get some order into the collection, much as I would love to do it. I have spent over half the day today trying to find the Sonata by Leo Livens for Alfor, but so far not found it.
So I ask you to be patient with me. I will find the music, and I will scan it.
Peter.
Many, many thanks, Peter, for your very generous offer to share the music with the rest of us; please take your time.
Your collection, by the way, sounds amazing!

Just a quiet reminder to all about our copyright policy and that issues of or questions about copyright should be raised with Malcolm in the first instance via PM.

Ok, this is a shot in the dark, but let's try...

Maria Hofer's Totentanz?

I have no little or no info whatsoever, except for the link below,
but I would love to see this work, or others by her.

Good to see a few recent postings on this thread.......here is one from a Brazilian composer, Francisca Gonzaga (1847-1935), full bio details can be found on Wikipedia, but here is a small album of her piano pieces. If you access the Wikipedia article there is also a link to a website where you can down load further scores by this composer.

I suspect no3 was written for a lady on PP who has this predelection for a chemical compound containing sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl), hence the expression 'I feel totally knackled'...particularly after playing Khachaturian...

The first piece in the Gonzaga file, "O Corta Jaca," is on the Milhaud cd made by Cezar Ferrari, and can be heard here:

Ah Fred ... the subtitle to #3 is A Gentle Little Puppy, a characterization which no one who knows me would assign to my personality - Pit Bull with a Mohawk is more like it. And the piece would be something very staccato and molto agitato.

5 more days until we play the Khachaturian ... can't wait to have that behind me.
