  • December 21, 2020 Great Edition - Problem with Sheet Music Plus

    This is Mozart's Ten Celebrated String Quartets. It's a beautiful urtext edition that is a pleasure to play from. Wonderful music to be sure. However, it is very difficult to find because Sheet Music Plus have listed it ONLY IN GERMAN. It took me a long time to...

    find it on their sight. I emailed them twice for help and then when I discovered the problem myself, I emailed and suggested they fix their website and include a listing in English. Here's hoping they do that eventually.
