To All,

This is not a clarinet -related question but perhaps someone here can help.
My daughter (16) is a pianist who has become interested in the music of the
Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth (1864-1934 or so). There are a few
simplified versions of his pieces in print, but the good stuff, which you
can hear on cd's, doesn't seem to be available. Does anyone have any
suggestions for locating this great music? Or know of a source online that
could help me?

Thanks,

Stewart Kiritz
