I am trying to get a hold of the score for a piece called Préce
by Alberto Nepomuceno
, a Brazilian composer. A piano solo version is available on IMSLP but apparently the original was for piano and strings, and there are piano/cello and piano/violin versions, so I'm trying to get a copy of either of those versions. But I can't seem to find it anywhere (I even tried to search on Amazon Brazil but there's probably a better site, however, I don't speak Portuguese so it's challenging. The word Prece means Prayer apparently, so I searched for that title as well but can't find it.
I've found a record at the library of congresshttps://memory.loc.gov/service/music/eadxmlmusic/eadpdfmusic/2003/mu003004.pdf
Which includes this info:
BOX-FOLDER 3/6 Prece (obra posthuma) Photocopy of printed piano-violin score
Note: original piano-cello score, arranged for piano-violin by Lambert Ribeiro
I actually sent an email to the Library of Congress but I don't think they send out PDFs of musical scores in their collection (do they??)
I suppose the violin part is the same as the top line of the piano solo version?? Here's the piano solo version:
Anyway, thanks in advance if anyone can help me find this!
