Thought I would share my publisher's webstore.

He advertises his site as the 'lowest cost sheet music on the internet', and arranges a lot of his own stuff. I've done a few arrangements, including transcriptions of Bach Suites/Partitas for Viola (from Violin). There is a very large collection of free transcriptions and arrangements, along with free music of most classical genres for many instruments.

From OLC Barcelona:

Quote
We would like to offer musicians the possibility to find any kind of sheet music they could be looking for. In OLC Barcelona Sheet Music you will find hundreds of original scores written by the greatest classical composers, especially piano works. Most of them are for free! However, you will be glad to find so many classical arrangements written by dozens of arrangers; easy piano versions from classics, piano arrangements of orchestral works (symphonies, concertos,...), classical works turned into jazz versions , piano works arranged for chamber music,... You will not find those piano arrangements in other websites!

They also do an 'arrange by request' feature, where you email them and they arrange it for you...

The reason it's slightly better than IMSLP for some of the content is that most of the stuff OLC have is more modern typesetting and not photocopies of old ripped music that is nearly illegible.

I hope this can help somebody out!

I just went to Amazon to check out clips of a Saint-Saens String Quartets CD I was interested in ordering. It doesn't really affect me since I don't buy downloads, but I noticed you can download each movement of the two quartets for 99-cents except for the first movement of SQ1 and the finale of SQ2. To get those two movements, you have to buy the whole album. I guess if the track is over 10 minutes long, they don't sell it individually, which seems like a silly policy for classical recordings.  The album download costs $8.99, but I just bought the disc used on ebay for $7.50, including shipping.

I know what CD that is, and I enjoy it. By the way, for MP3 enthusiasts, eClassical charges by length - so, for instance, a track under 10 seconds long costs mere pennies but a four-minute track will cost you over $2. This means that Yevgeny Sudbin's recent Paganini Rhapsody on BIS, which is divided into two dozen tracks, costs $3.50 instead of the $25 a site like Amazon or Classicsonline might demand.

I'm a little annoyed with MDT. They announced they'd be launching a new website design "after April 16th." It hasn't happened yet. Wonder if we'll get it this week...

Or never. Maybe it was a ploy to get all of us to buy up our wishlist.  ;D

I hear you.  Download is not for me.  I can count the number of downloads in less than 2 hands but those downloads are the Royal Concertgebouw live concerts I downloaded from its website for free and may not be available on CD.

Well, it definitely is "After April 16th". So I don't see what you are complaining about.

Relax Brian.  Don't get too hung up on 4/16, we are done with the IRS for the year.  Who cares about if MDT even updates its website ...     ;D

On Amazon UK Marketplace there's a seller called zoverstocks. I ordered a CD from them back in January that never arrived. I waited till the last of the delivery estimate dates before notifying them, and fair enough, they refunded my money, observing that it must have got lost in the post. Well, I thought, these things happen - I suppose.

In April I gave them another shot and placed two orders a couple of days apart. As before, they apparently shipped promptly. But here I am, on 9th May, still waiting. It's possible they may turn up in the next few days before the latest delivery estimate is exceeded; but it all seems very odd, and I'm already anticipating two more 'lost in the post' explanations - despite the fact that in the last ten years no package addressed to me has ever been knowingly lost (zoverstocks excepted). But why should items posted here in the UK, even at 2nd class, take so long to reach a UK address?

Does anyone have any experience of this seller? Curiously, there's very little negative feedback on their profile.

I've placed four orders with them over the past year or so, Alan, and they've been reliable.  And that entails shipping by inflatable dinghy, too!

I've had positive experiences with them, delivering to me here in the US and previously to me in Australia.  I have had a couple of instances recently where things from other sellers have not arrived, though, and I have attributed it to the vagaries of the USPS.

I think that explains it Karl. On land, those inflatable dinghies move ever so slowly.

Thanks Keith.

So it seems I have every reason still to be hopeful.

No such luck over here. On the whole, the postal service inflatable dinghies keep to the inside lane on motorways, but they keep getting gridlocked with snails, slugs, and the slower-moving caterpillars. It can't be easy for them.
