Does anyone have a copy of Joseph Achron's Berceuse (Op.20)? It doesn't appear to be in any of the main archives with Achron's work.

If you check out this thread viewtopic.php?f=11&t=671&hilit=jewish+descent there may be some links there for you to try.

Thanks, but none of those sites had this piece. According to WorldCat, it has been published, but I haven't had any luck finding it anywhere online.
As an aside. I just realized that I posted this in the wrong thread. (Should be violin + piano).

Here's a solo violin sonata from an Armenian composer/violinist who was born in Ethiopia. The bio can be seen at:

The earlier two sonatas were gathered in a separate Armenian publication.

Tsolak V. BEKARYAN (BEKARIAN) (Armenia)
Sonata no. 3, for solo violin (1974)

Here's something I didn't know until today about Bach's famous D minor Chaconne:-
If you exclude that passing high G that appears in the scale before the arpeggiando section, the highest note in the Chaconne is F#. This F# appears twice in quick succession. The first time is on the "and" of beat 3 in measure 158. Fractionally this beat occurs 5/6 of the way through the measure. If we turn this measure+beat into an irrational number we get 158.833333. There are 257 measures in the whole piece, so that relationship of that beat in the entire piece is 158.833333 / 257 = 0.618028533. The golden ratio is 1.61803398875, so either it's a coincidence, or Bach intentionally placed this note at virtually the exact interface of the major and minor golden sections.
