Subj: [kl] Excerpt Books
Date: Thu, 8 Feb 2001 06:56:39 -0500

Phil Shapiro asked:

<Is the International Music Co. set of excerpt books still in print?>

Only a few of them. I think the first four volumes (compiled by McGinnis)
are available, and maybe one or two of the second four (compiled by Drucker).
The others had to be withdrawn because they contained copyrighted material.
You'll have to look in used music bins to find them.

They're full of errors, however, and they're missing lots of audition
materials -- other parts of Midsummer Night's Dream, the page from the
Tchaikovsky 6th of furious 16th in unison with the strings, the cadenza from
the Nielsen 5th, the opening of Daphnis and Chloe, and on and on. Buy the
parts from Jeanne and learn the whole thing.

Best regards.
