"For Sightreading, Book 2, Easy Classical Pieces for Piano" by Leonhard Deutsch. Heritage Music Publications, Inc. NY, NY.

Does anybody have a copy or know the whereabouts of one?

It's long out of print, and I've done a pretty exhaustive search on the web. It's driving me a little crazy because after some looking I finally located book 1 (59 Folk Songs of Various Nations), but I can't find book 2 anywhere. I thought maybe the teachers' forum would be the best bet.

Thanks.

If Bookfinder ain't got it, ain't nobody got it. (Just looked. Sorry.)


Slow down and do it right.

Thanks for looking, Frycek. I'm pretty sure I checked there also.

I was hoping maybe somebody had one in their pile of books that they would either be willing to part with or willing to make a photocopy for me (I'm not an intellectual property attorney, but I don't think the publisher even exists anymore, so I can't imagine there would be any copyright issues).

I had a copy but I think my mother threw it out when she thought I no longer wanted it. It had no fingering at all and was specifically for sight-reading. I know I don't have it in the music books I have now but it was good material for that purpose.

Ralph

Addendum: Found a book by him on AMAZON for sightreading. A lot more than the couple of bucks I paid but then prices have gone up. Here's the URL:

Thanks for that link, Varcon, but I do have that one. I'm looking just for the specific one I mentioned above. If you hear somebody digging through your trash, pay no attention. whistle

LB: It's not like the book I had which is the one I think you're looking for. I really don't know where it got off to but it's now lost. That was the best I could do. It did have original compositions in it tho. Try BURT MUSIC and see if the Century Catalog is still viable. It just might be that it's still in publication but obscure?
