Does anyone know where I can get the sheet music for Dvorak cello concerto in A Major? I can`t find it anywhere. I know most people haven`t heard of it and yes it does exist...im not crazy.

Antonín Dvorák, Cello Concerto in A Major(1865) does exist, as stupid as it sounds, some sheet music just isn`t for sale and I think that is one of them. If that sheet music is for sale, I sure cant find it.

Heres something look on;
...He also left an unfinished work, the Cello Concerto in A major (1865), which was completed and orchestrated by the German composer Günter Raphael between 1925 and 1929...

The concerto is "officially" out of print (at least the piano score and cello part are--the full score by Burghauser is much easier to find). I was able to obtain a copy by dealing directly with the publisher Supraphon--now Editio Baerenreiter Praha (email: musicpbl@editio-baerenreiter.cz). They will sell you an authorized copy of the work. It`s not cheap and if you`re from the US, dealing with European publishers can be a challenge, but it`s worth it!! Caution--ignore the Sadlo recording! It`s terrible!! The recording by Jiri Bata is much better. It is the entire piano/cello version without cuts. It gives you a much better idea of Dvorak`s intentions.
Also, do not purchase the Breitkopf edeition to save money. It is an adulterated version redone by Gunter Raphael. It may be interesting for historical reasons, but it is so far from the original that it defies comparison.
Good luck!!
