I've got a couple of books by Rachmaninov but I found this great series by Brahms. I'm not sure if they are well known but I like number 1 and number 7.



What have you bought lately and if possible please share some great music we can enjoy smile

Most recent was Bartok Mikrokosmos Volume 5 (Boosey and Hawkes). Before that it was Schumann, Kinderscenen (Alfred). I play something from each at each lesson. Yin and Yang.

My last one was Einaudi's Islands book. Shortly before that was the music from The Greatest Showman. Way too difficult for me, but I'm dreaming of the day I can play them!

I am addicted to buying music, whether its classical music CDs online or local stores, or Henle sheet music/books. My goal is to have a huge piano music library...growing up (my immigrant parents were poor) I only had a few piano books; a Sonatina book, Hanon, and A Dozen A Day method books, Diller Quayle for beginners, and a general Chopin Favorite Pieces book. I only discovered Schubert and Schumann in the past 2 years when I started piano lessons again..(gasp😵). This year so far I bought

Henle editions of
- Bach WTC 1 and 2
-Chopin Preludes
- Chopin Nocturnes
-Chopin Ballades
-Brahms Intermezzo Op 117 and Op 118
-Schumann Kinderszesen
-Schubert Impromptus and Moments Musicaux

Non classical books= jazz piano favorites. Billy Joel classics, Elton John songs and sheet music from googled web sites.

I was at the Juilliard bookstore a few weeks ago and bought Mozarts Piano Concertos 21-23 w the Orchestral reductions.

My next book will likely be the Grieg Lyric pieces. I also print out various versions of the same piece from ISLMP so I have 4 fat binders on my bookshelf with printed scores.

It's been a while since I bought new scores, but Carl Vine's Bagatelles was one of them.

This is the best-known (and easiest) piece from that set:

I also bought this:

I bought this:

http://www.hanbooks.com/yipicomsc.html

...and this:

http://www.hanbooks.com/yieapicomsc.html

Why? Because I just HAD to have the Korean versions and spiral bound versions, in both regular and easy, because I aim for regular but realistically can only attempt to play the easy versions. grin

Since I'm in to Jazz and harmony I got this book on Bach, "J.S. Bach 413 Chorales: Analyzed". I've only scanned it a bit so far but looks great. A Jazz guitarist I know of uses this with his students at the university he teaches at.

Love this suite. I plan to revisit it in the not too distant future. I think I can play 4 of the pieces. They vary quite a bit in level of difficulty.
Enjoy!

Most recent purchases:
Satie: Gymnopedies, and Gnossiennes

Also: Saties complete piano works on CD.

I have never been much aware of Saties music, but after having heard it all, I feel confident that I will take it upon myself to play quite at bit of it over the coming years. His music is a weird kind of proto-minimalism meets Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. smile

I rarely buy brand new scores....but I've amassed a pretty big collection over the past five years from yard sales and thrift stores...it's amazing what you can find, and honestly really fun ( thrill of the hunt! ).
My latest find that I'm totally in love with is "The Three Maries" by Villa-Lobos. I'd never heard of him, so a new discovery as well smile

Recently bought Faure Barcarolles in the Barenreiter edition. I have always been a fan of his music. I had an old edition but the barenreiter is really great.

I'm part of the Schumann and Chopin crowd.

Schumann's kinderszenes.
Chopin's C# minor Nocturne.

I bought this a few months ago and am getting decent value from it: Hours with the masters

My most recent purchase was the RCM 5 syllabus... >.> nothing exciting.

But I did come across the sheet for Sogno Di Volare by Christopher Tin from Civilization 6. Not hard, but sounds great!

Thanks! I was planning to try Montagues and Capulets if I can handle the jumps...

My most recent purchase consisted of selected compositions by Harald Saeverud, Dag Wiren, and Einojuhani Rautavaara. I bought them to provide submissions to the Nordic Themed Recital occurring later this year -- I'm using the Recitals as an"excuse" to investigate composers about whom I knew a little bit, but never before played. Of course, I'm using YouTube to "screen" whatever I purchase -- I've got to like what I'm working on, and there's little reason to buy "blind" anymore.
