I am looking for Ignacio Cervantes' "Los Muñecos", for piano solo or several pianos/hands.

Thanks in advance.

on the topic of his "Rapsodias", I have a published album of many (almost all?) of his solo piano works, but I am having a difficult time finding this piece for piano and orchestra. Any information on it? Is the score 'postable' if it is out of print? I'd really love a copy of this, I think other 'concertonados' would be thrilled to lay eyes on it too?

I've been fond of that piece since I discovered the recording on Youtube a few years ago--I'm glad you posted a link. There was some discussion regarding the avaiability of a score on IMSLP a while back:

Has anyone located the missing pages 5 & 6 of the vocal score to Granado's opera "Goyescas"? This score has been posted to IMSLP but these two pages are frustratingly absent.

Here's an interesting volume that was printed in the Soviet Union. I'm not at all familiar with these composers, with the exception of Leo Brouwer, whose reputation comes primarily from his superb (and numerous) modern compositions for guitar.

Pieces by Cuban Composers, for piano (1979)

Amadeo ROLDAN - Mulatto (bio at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amadeo_Rold%C3%A1n )
