Dave has just put up a link to a very special webpage, Merton Music.
Merton Music publishes copies of out- of print and very hard- to- find
sheet music and and scores, primarily chambermusic for strings (and
strings plus keyboard).
The prices are VERY reasonable, so if you are looking for a special
gift for that chambermusician in your life, hop over to
and see what Dave Lampson has done with their catalog. You can search
by instrument or composer. Each country has its own contact person.
There are pieces I have never before heard, and composers I never knew.
It's a collector's delight!
Molique. Draeseke. Ries. Fuchs. Lindblad. Philipp Scharwenka, Spohr,
Schaffner, Wilm, Stenhammar, Stanford, and that's just a taste. Duos,
quartets, quintets, trios, piano trios, piano quartets, etc.!
(You'll probably enjoy just looking at the site even if you aren't lucky
enough to be a violist!)
Not sold in stores.
