Many warm thanks :) I now see I should have requested in the Balkan region thread. I will research region specifics more carefully next time.

You are welcome.

The “Nokturno” is a rare and beautiful composition.

Yes definitely overpriced. Won't get many sales at €18,00 and I'll be long dead by this time copyright runs out.

Apparently the Despic Nocturno is no longer available to order. :( Anyone has a scan?

I am also looking for Skerjanc 1st Sonata and 6 Pieces for One Hand. Any leads?

(isn't ASU where a lot of the Tocatta classics stuff for Kosenko works got recorded?). Seems like someone there might know of have this. They get their hands on tons of rare stuff.

Many thanks for posting the Despic Nocturne, after hearing the YouTube recording, this is an exquisite piece of music.

Hi Naturlaut, back since I first posted about this piece in Aug 2014, the melody has haunted me, and all my efforts to get it came up short (most recently a serbian compilation of various Serbian piano compositions, that a library rejected my request due to it being on permanent reserve as it is the only copy in my country).

This is an exquisite work and i (and know many others do , even if they do not post) sincerely appreciate your providing us access to this.

Again, I extend our gratitude to you! :D

Thank you guys. I too was haunted by this nocturne and I can't stop playing it since I got it.

I am still looking for Skerjanc. From what I hear a lot of it sounded very Scriabin-esque. Unfortunately I can't seem to be able to order the score from this Slovenian website. Anyone has scans of the 1st Sonata?
