Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — During this week—the heaviest week for online shopping of the entire year—Sheet Music Plus, the premier destination for online sheet music, highlights their 2011 gift collection. “Coming up with unique and thoughtful gifts for your entire Christmas list is no easy task,” says Jennifer Silva, CEO of Sheet Music Plus. “We’re very happy to offer customers a litany of fresh gift giving ideas for the music lovers in their life. What better way to support a musician’s career or hobby then by buying them something new to play or a special commemorative edition of their favorite piece?”
Gifts for Classical Musicians: John Williams deluxe scores are an especially perfect gift; they feature full score notation and text in a beautifully printed spiral-bound book. Favorites include Harry Potter, Star Wars, Clouse Encounters, JFK, and Far & Away.
Urtext Masterpiece Editions are distinguished by their meticulous musicological research, fine engraving, non-glare paper and professional bindings. Urtext editions are as true to the composer’s original intent as possible. While many people may own versions of the classics, few actually buy themselves the Urtext version – making this a gift they will absolutely love. Stand-outs this 2011 season include: G. Henle and Baerenretier Verlag.
John Cage’s 4’ 33’ famous piece ‘silent’. Although you don’t really need to buy sheet music for this piece, lovers of modern classical will enjoy this gift.
