    Hi

    A friend of mine is currently looking for the piano part for the cornet solo ' My Old Kentucky Home ' by W.Rimmer. If any one knows where there's a part available please could you P.M. me or post on this thread.

    Many Thanks.

    Just Music have a piano copy arranged by J. Hartmann. Don't know whether it's compatible with the Rimmer arrangement though?

    http://www.justmusicuk.com/

    I seem to remember this solo - along with many other 'famous' solos being printed in book form all with piano accompaniment. 'Hailstorm' and 'Pandora' were included if my memory serves me correctly.


    Edit: Pretty Jane and La Belle Americane were definitely included

    ;)

    I would be very surprised seeing Damare's Pandora being in that selection! (... different publisher, i.e., Molenaar N.V. Wormerveer Holland) ;)

    Nope, they're not.

    I did a solo contest once as a kid....and Harry Mortimer turner up (and sat with my Dad which made it much worse! :eek: )....they hadn't specified which arrangement was to be played....and I'd prepared the wrong one and had to play unaccompanied....

    I have seen a copy of The Soloists Companion.My Old Kentucky Home is in there,along with many old famous solo's and duets.If you can still get a copy or if it is still in print.
    I remember having 1 many years ago,but cannot remember where it is.(Probably in the loft at my parents house)And I've been left home nearly 40 years.Joined the Army.
    If I can suggest,have a look on e-bay or Amazon.You might get lucky.

    W&R reprinted it a few years ago - there are probably a few still knocking around...

    AFAIK there never was a piano part for the Rimmer version though.

    I haven't looked for 20 years though ;)

    [& I was referring to an original part, rather than one that's been generated]

    I did that solo contest when I was about 12 or 13....I was a couple of months behind on the Hartmann...IMO it's significantly harder (whatever that means!).
