He explained that the sheet music itself and shipping and handling from the UK would be about $70.00 and asked if I still wanted to proceed. When I said no, he fully understood and was glad he called, as was I.
Wow, $70 for one book…Zoinks! (as George would say…) I paid a lot for some Granados books that came from Spain, but I don't remember exactly how much.
So, Monica and David, if you need some special music sheets from Europe, I can try to help you next time somehow...
That’s very kind of you, Andreas! I’ll keep that in mind. And don’t hesitate to ask me if there is something I can do for you!
One infinitesimal niggle I noticed is that in bars like bar 3 of no.12, where a long note needs to sound, you come in (slightly) early after that.
I never really noticed that I come in a teeny bit early sometimes. Thanks for pointing that out – I will pay attention to it next time.
I printed these two out when you sent them to me (thanks once more) and started on them, to complete my not-so-complete set. But somehow they gravitead to the bottom of the pile, not sure why. Now there does not seem an urge to do them - actually to be honest I like nos. 1-10 better. I will remove my 'complete set' header. Or, we could share the honors in the 'complete set' header if you want.
I was straightening up a cabinet recently and found this book, blew the dust off it, and put it on my piano. Both pieces aren’t that long or hard, so I learned them pretty quickly. That’s when I started thinking about you. But then I figured that I simply must have underestimated the importance I thought this score would mean to you and that you weren’t that interested since all this time has passed (I reminded you twice), and well…you know with everything else…
I just felt that I wanted the music to get added to our archive so I recorded it. I always like when we have multiple members making a complete set, so I’d happy to share this particular ‘complete set’ table with you. But I only recorded two pieces to your ten, so I will leave the decision to you….
