I'm lookling for the score of Marc-Andre Hamelin's Little Nocturne. This was published exclusively in Clavier magazine, I'm not sure when it was. I can't find it on the web. Does anybody out there have a subscription to this magazine, and would care to look up that piece and scan it for me ? I'd be most grateful :)

Hi Chris,
Have you tried http://www.pianofiles.com/ ?
I was able to get a copy of Sam Raphling's OOP transcription of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" for FREE! I posted a pdf copy of the Bortkiewich Concerto No.1 in B-flat major for any askers, but have received no requests. You don't have to provide files before you can get some. Good luck!

Chris, do you know if it was published in the last two years or so? I have a subscription, but have only been receiving the magazine for about two years. I'd be glad to look through my stash and see if I can find the piece.

Thanks Sarah, much appreciated. However I fear my question was not quite correct. It was published in Clavier Companion which may not be what you have :
Quote:
The July-August 2009 "Clavier Companion" magazine has featured interview "Unveiling the Enigma: A Tete-a-tete with Marc-Andre Hamelin written by Krassima Jordan (Professor of Piano and Artist-in-Residence at Baylor University, Texas). The interview is interesting to piano teachers, pianists and performers.

The above interview is found to read online at: http://www.claviercompanion.com

In the magazine a full score is printed on pages 18-19: "Little Nocturne" by MAH.

Oh yes! That's exactly what I have! And something in the back of my mind remembers that article, so I'm going to look in my stash. Thanks for the specific info, too.

Cool, thanks ! :D
I thought maybe you could scan it (just the music pages) and mail me the pdf ?
Or else photocopy it and send it by snail mail ?

Sure thing! I happen to have access to a scanner right now, so if you could PM me your email address I can scan it and send it right over.
