No IMSLP?? Now what!!

Postby pinguito » Wed Dec 05, 2007 4:53 am

I was about to get a score for my music history exam of the Brandenburg concerto no.3 and I couldn't. That's what happens when music libraries don't have scores for the new incoming students. Even though we are paying thousands of dollars to be in school and to get all the necessary information to get out there in the professional world, some libraries don't have enough scores. But it's not the school's fault, it's the media and copyrights. It was a great thought for the people who made possible the IMSLP website for awhile anyways. Too bad is gone now. Can anyone tell me where I can get this score in a reasonable price and without having to buy to whole collection of the Brandenburg concertos? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks so much.

If you are still looking at purchasing, I would highly recommend Dover's edition: http://store.doverpublications.com/0486233766.html. With shipping and handling, probably around $25 for all 6.

If you can afford it, you might want to consider a more recent edition published by Baerenreiter under the Neue Bach Ausgabe (New Bach Edition) of the Brandenburg Concerto.

If I'm not mistaken, the scans of the Brandenburg concerto no. 3 in the Free Sheet Music website are from the sheet music book published by Dover - The Brandenburg Concertos and the Four Orchestral Suites, which in turn is a reprint of the out of copyright edition originally published by the Bach Gesellschaft.
A word on the Brandenburg concerto scan hosted in the Indiana Music Library Variations website. The scans are intended to be viewed and not for printing since the resolution is low (<96dpi), which is not suitable if you plan to stare at the computer monitor to study the scans of the score for a long period of time.

They're good enough for printing. I can print and read fine. Of course only for study.
