Really beautiful and interesting work by a giant of Columbian modern classical music
This prelude has so much going for it, lyrical, big open sound, I'm fascinated by this little work
Anyone have realiable leads on score that can be acquired ie purchased etc ? Under copyright so I know It cannot be posted but any info is much appreciated

Collection of various folk songs and danzas. this is from my personal collection and honestly this old rare volume belongs in a library the only hits I got for it were a few university library holdings in South America, remarkable condition given age and flimsy build but brittle and I damaged binding a bit during scanning so sorry about some page shapes and ratios best I could do vs destroying it
no idea how I acquired this. I moved and came across it while unpacking , I must have gotten it as part of a lot w ither things maybe an estate n or thing I dont have any clue how I got lucky enough to get such a cool old album
there were apparently 3 of these published in Costa Rica I the mid 1930s, this is vol 3

Thanks for this interesting collection. Please move it to the corresponding thread: "Composers of Central America".

Anyone with the 3rd and 4th Intermezzi of Luis Antonio Calvo? (Actually, Number 4 appears to be on Scribd if someone with an account could kindly grab a copy for us.)
https://www.scribd.com/document/3574750 ... onio-Calvo
Numbers 1 and 2 (Lejano Azul) can be found on IMSLP along with several other nice pieces, and recordings abound on YouTube. As always any other scores would be appreciated as well. Many thanks.

Here are some nice recordings of the four Intermezzi.

No.4, not no.3... is No.3 on there too? Couldn't find it.

I took a few minutes and generated a slightly improved version of the Scribd file. Thanks again to Parag.

The complete piano works of Adolfo Mejia. The file appears to have been assembled from two incomplete sources and is pretty rough. Hopefully a better scan will surface. --nms--

This one has been in circulation for quite a while now. I haven't checked the individual pieces to see which are common, but the quality of this one is OK.
