Britten Cello Solo Suites -
Does anyone know where I can order them?

I've been playing them from old copies from my college days, when the copying technology wasn't very good - so I've been playing them mostly by memory for a while.

Have you tried Petelson's or Frank Music Company?

I'm sure you can find it elsewhere (unless there's some kind copyright issue...nah, that's just with Former Soviet Composers, right?)

All 3 are published by Faber in one volume in a 1986 edition. Should be easy to find or order (although I notice Shar doesn't carry it.)

Shar does carry it. I just got up from my desk and went out and touched the showroom copy. The catalog number for the Faber edition of the 3 Suites is 3065-110.

Shar may well carry it, but that hardly guarantees that you'll get it. I've been waiting a couple of months for music that it claimed it had in stock (Mozart Divertimento), and have given up waiting for a reply to a simple e-mail inquiry about bows. You're better off ordering from cellos2go.com or Frank's in NY.

It's not listed on Shar's website. And dang it, I want an untouched copy. Just kidding!

And as we're on the subject, whatever happened to the copy of Eine Kleine Nachtmusic you guys said you were going to mail me when it came in (2 years ago)? I can't believe it's been out of stock that long.

You know, I love the shar company, and have been doing business with them for more than 25 years, but the website leaves a lot to be desired. You still can't specify the guage of the strings you want - every other string company website offers this feature. Ok, I guess the websites not that bad, as that's my major complaint.

Hey! Sorry I said anything to help. I'm going to go back to the I&E board where replies like what I got don't seem to happen.

Bye.

Sorry...
I didn't mean anything personal. You will note that I mentioned that I was joking. Geez, lighten up!

For the record, when I couldn't find the Britten pieces on the web site, I still placed an order for a bunch of other stuff. And after a bad series of transactions with one of your competitors, I'll be back for string orders, even if I have to call in my order to get the right guages.

Obviously it wasn't personal; we don't even know who you are! Your company's service has steadily deteriorated over the years, but no one blames you in particular. We hope you'll stay around here.

email me and you can have mine right away. it's beyond my ability and outside my interest (probably because it's beyond my ability).
