What sheet music did you buy last and why?

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

ABRSM violin grade 5 exam pieces. Because getting to grade 6 isn't much of a problem, and I wanted to go through the early grades listing what technicalities were required at each grade.
It's good to see you didn't give up on the violin. I'm having a blast learning the cello. So the last sheet music I bought would be the Piatti method books.

I only started bowing a week ago, but I wait until my upstairs neighbours are out. Luckily I had the foresight to buy the heaviest mute I could find (rubber outside, metal core). I've done quite a lot of pizzicato scale work, and I've been studying 3rd position quite intensely. Most books say third position is the most common, but I see there's some 2nd position stuff in the grade 3 exam book, so I feel less guilty about venturing out of 1st position.

Vivaldi: Four Seasons, arranged by Emre Sabuncuoglu. This will last me a few years.

A new copy of Bach's Goldberg Variations. Very cheap and my other one's worn out.

Last month I bought Schubert Sonata in A minor "Arpeggione" arranged for Guitar and Clarinet.
Why? - Because my friend who plays the clarinet thought it would be nice for us to learn to play it as a long term project.
Is that an advanced piece, or what's the grade level?

Thanks,
David

It is advanced yes. Hence learning as a long term project :)

I bought Yvon Demilac’s Marines. Don’t know when I will start on it though.

Since I use spotify I rarely buy a cd anymore, but I might purchase the new complete edition of J.S.Bach's music, including 222 cd. The box is called Bach 333, as 2018 marks 333 years since birth of JSB. Deutsche Grammophon has announced release date is 26 October.

£400. Thank God for that - it's way more than I'd want to pay. That would buy me Coda's best carbon fibre bow and a little bit more. Also I couldn't bear being faced with 222 discs to listen to. Why not buy that and Mozart 225 too, only 200 discs!

You can't take it with you!

Or, maybe you can. Did I tell you I've instructed my wife to cash everything out and put the check in my casket?

Thanks for the info. I haven't seen any price for the box yet. Mhhh. Should it really cost that much, I might reconsider my decision. Mozart - no. I like Mozart, but not that much. The only box I own so far is the Bream box, 99 CD or so. You are right again, I didn't listen to them all. But that's not the point. POSESSING the Bream box is decisive.

Those are just starter prices: I expect they will come down. I've got a Baroque box set (I think I listened to all of it. No, it's 60 discs - I'd be very surprised), but a complete Bach would make a pretty damn good Baroque box set.

'Capricho Arabe' by Tárrega. I used to have it but cannot find. I played it 20-25 years ago and had it nailed... thought I'd dust it off again. Wonderful piece.

Fernando Sor – The Complete Studies, Lessons and Exercises edited by Brian Jeffery (Tecla)

I put away my RCM books, and I am just working out of the Stanley Yates Classical Guitar Technique from Foundation to Mastery—Part 1 Foundation and his Mel Bay repertoire books for now. I’m also studying some piano and jazz guitar, and using two separate classical guitar repertoires had me spread too thin.

However, I’m going to go through the Sor Op. 60 when it gets here, and then I hope to join the group study assuming they do Op. 35 here. That should be a nice way to compliment the Yates books.
Best,
Chuck
