Fred,

Regarding the Sibley offering today, any idea why they restricted access to some of the Godowsky miniatures? Some I could download, but not the last 3 or 4. I couldn't access them even after logging in. I've never seen Sibley do this before.

No, I have no idea at all. They say the files are PD...

Perhaps an email to them would be in order?

Just pointing out that the Miniatures volumes 1-3 (plus 120 pages from the unavailable part) are available from IMSLP and from my site.

The site below shows that a piano solo edition of 5 of Godowsky's Miniatures, including Humoresque, Rigaudon, The Miller's Song, Processional March and Arabian Chant (Orientale) was published by Carl Fischer (1918-1920):

I've done a quick look in the usual places and can't find them. Does anyone have these on hand or know where to get them? I'd especially like the Arabian Chant - just heard it on a Naxos recording and really like it.

The flow from Sibley shows no signs of stopping. Incidentally, just reiterating Rob's point that downloading from Sibley is good for them since it helps to justify their existance...

Frank, thank you very much for the miniatures - you just saved me a trip to the library stacks. Playing a few of these will be a nice change from the blasted Sabre Dance, which is about to get me kicked out of the house (think about having to listen to that every day for a few months). Even the dogs pack their bags and head for the hills when I practice the Khachaturian now.

Glad to be of help, Passthesalt! I can't imagine what intensive study of the Sabre Dance is like, but definitely a little Godowsky should sooth the nerves and keep all the dogs at home as well!

Could someone please post the 4-hand version (on one piano only) of Ravel's Introduction and Allegro? I want to play this with my friend in a 4-hand concert. Thanks a lot in advance.
Best,
Koon
