Does anyone know if it's possible to buy sheet music written by Dudley Moore?

From time to time I try to hunt down the piece he played in "10" but can never find it...I probably need to rent the movie...sit down and figure it out....that takes too much time. Anyhow, he was one great musician not to mention a hilarious comedian.

RADA: The name of the song is: It's easy to say. By Henry Mancini. No need to rent the movie. There are several clips of Dudley playing that piece on U-tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=724mXnGk2SQ&feature=related

Also you can purchase the music on the site listed below. Pay and download.

You can own a Chickering, Christifori, or Steinway, but if you can't play it.... It is just a piece of eye candy.

I'd like to find music WRITTEN by Dudley Moore, not music played by him.

Miss Sharon, My previous post was directed to Rada. (I added the name, to clarify this for all readers).

This one is for you. Good luck.

Hi everyone,

Henry Mancini is one of my favorites . I had the priveledge of hearing him play in person years ago in La Jolla.....I don't think the solo Dudley played in the middle of the movie is Mancini's piece...is it? I know the song "It's Easy To Say". If it's the same piece I'll have to take a listen. Please let me know if you know for sure about this piece.

thanks,
rada

Yeah, I gues that's the piece...for some reason my memory wanted to recall another piano solo from that movie...though I love Dudley Moore I don't remember his 'banging' technique at the piano...not my favorite sound.

Thank you Ivory Dreams for the link to the music by Dudley Moore. I was hoping to find a piano solo version of some of his more classical works, but I do appreciate the link you sent! ~Miss Sharon~

Hey Miss Sharon

I have a piece called And the Same to You which was a 'fantasia' if you will, on the theme of Colonel Bogey (famous old wartime song with a rather choice lyric if memory serves) Anyway, I learnt it parrot fashion in my youth by slowing the record down to 16rpm form 33rpm but now have the sheet music.

I'm pleased to report I got most of it right but can now play all the right notes (though not neccesarilly in the right order!

This piece is Moore at his best, making people laugh with his music

Love the guy, though I bought a couple of his CDs and was a little disappointed. I prefer his wittier numbers to the more schmaltzy ones.

At the moment, I'm trying to learn the piece he plays at 0:55 in this fantastic and very clever short-documentary, required viewing for you all:

I'd love to know the name of the piece Dudley Moore is playing in this video. Can you share that? .....and are you lerning it by ear or from a score?

thanks,
rada

Just by ear. I don't know it's name either, but it's the theme to his and Peter Cook's show, 'Not Only...But Also'

I heard another Dudley Moore piano piece the other day. "Madrigal". Does anyone know if there exists any sheet music for this very amusing work? Andy

He was an interesting pianist. Not a conventional jazz sound - he did his own thing, had his own style. I've got a couple albums of his. My favorite is "Authentic Dud"
