Art, and Music, and Scores, oh my!

We just acquired a full cart of new scores, sheet music, and books in the Arts and Humanities division! Any time we get to put shiny new covers on our shelves at MLK it is a proud moment. We have a multitude of new chamber music, vocal literature, interior design books, and art history volumes.

One exciting acquisition is the catalog for the National Gallery of Art's exhibition "Tullio Lumbardo and Venetian High Renaissance Sculpture," which runs through November 1, 2009. After you have been to the Gallery down the street, come learn more about the pieces' individual histories at MLK!

Our division also acquired brand new copies of some great vocal scores including Vivaldi's Gloria, Bernstein's Candide, and Roberts I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. We now have new copies of Mozart, Purcell, Massenet, and Irving Berlin song collections.

Calling all bassoon players for Rossini's Six Quartets for flute, clarinet, horn, and bassoon and Glinka's Trio Pathetique for clarinet (or violin), bassoon (or cello), and piano. Any harpists out there? We now have Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp. And if you have a brass quintet needing to blow their horns, you can check out the French composer Ambrose Thomas's Street Song for Brass Quintet.
