Foerster string quintet op 3

Postby euphoniuman » Sat Oct 31, 2015 10:45 am

I'm searching for the parts and/or score of Josef Bohuslav Foerster's string quintet with double bass. I wrote to the editor but it is not longer available.
If anyone can help me (I guess it's PD)

Published in 1914 by Urbanek (opus numbers and publication dates with argh. Though it's possible that an earlier publication is just unknown to me, of course - as it is, I had trouble finding _this_ one, almost failed to find it after going through Worldcat ,NKP Czech library catalog, ÖNB Austria, then Worldcat again!).

Copy available at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Free Library URL Record.

Fleisher Collection, In Library Use Only. Does not interloan. Still, contact the librarians...
(This one says it's only two movements. I do not know if that's the original, or if it's only an excerpt from the original that reprinted only 2 movements of it. So caveat! But perhaps better than nothing all the same. If I can find an earlier publication, or manuscript, with more information, or a publication about Foerster that I manage to interloan (or a downloadable dissertation- those are great...) that says more about the piece, at least how many movements it originally had, where the ms is, etc.- that I'll follow up with. Sorry about the 9 month delay...)
