Weiss Treasure Trove

Post by soltirefa » Sat Oct 07, 2017 8:00 pm

I Googled "s.l. weiss krause pdf" and the second search result that says, "Weiss guitar transcriptions | Sylvius Leopold Weiss - ВКонтакте" has an unbelievable amount of info/pdfs of Weiss. I'm slack-jawed at how much.

Most if not all of that music is under copyright, so if that site allows you to simply download PDFs of the music, then they're doing it without permission, I'm quite sure.

Not all, but some for sure. At least it shows recordings and arrangements that are available, then you can go to legit places to obtain them.

Following your search, Glen, I stumbled on that site where all the transcriptions are free and where there are a lot of Weiss' complete sonatas.

Hi Alain,

Yeah, I stumbled on that myself. Unbelievable how many sonatas he has.
