Dozens of COMPLETE SETS of orchestra parts for sale: symphonies, oratorios & other choral works, overtures, concertos, ballet music, even opera, by such composers as Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and many more, all at prices far below current retail—and all with FREE standard shipping.
A smaller selection of orchestral pops music will also be offered, including classics from Broadway and the movies.
These are real parts—NOT photocopies—gleaned from the libraries of several orchestras clearing their shelves of extra sets, wanting to generate additional income so they can purchase more music.
Most parts are "gently used" and include modest markings (bowings, fingerings and etc.) but all sets have been double-checked and are complete. Included in the posting of each piece will be a list of each individual part in the set as well as string counts; most sets do not include scores.
FIRST, IT WILL BE A PRIVATE SALE:
For the first week, the sale will be private—offered only to contestants of The American Prize, including semi-finalist, finalist and winning conductors and ensembles from the years 2010 through 2012.
LATER, A PUBLIC SALE:
After seven days, the sale will be made public—anyone who wishes will be able to purchase any materials still available.
