Online shopping can sure be weird sometimes

I went on Amazon recently in search of a particular piece of sheet music. These were my buying options:

Let’s see… should I buy new or used? Talk about difficult decisions…

    for that much money, I’ll be expecting to see it signed by Wolfgang or Ludwig. 😉

    The 1,700$ one is tempting… if only they offered free delivery 😉

    And you can’t download it yourself from somewhere and not have to pay shipping? I understand paying the songwriter/publisher, but the shipping (and lack of personal greeting signature by Beethoven) makes me personally reluctant to waste it. I don’t use amazon since I think the term ‘shipping’ for them just means ‘surcharge for no reason except wanting more money and to nudge you to buy that amazon prime or whatever it is’.

    The $1.71K model, of course, it’ll be so much more meaningful

    If you get the Sibelius software you can feed in Daniil Trifonov playing Beethoven’s Op 32 Sonata, //Hammerclavier// (YouTube) and print out the score.

      My reference to the YouTube video of Trifonov playing a Beethoven Sonata was incorrectly stated. Here is the correct attribution:: Beethoven Sonata No. 32, Op. 111.

      There are 2 videos; the latest was at Carnegie Hall and shows a surpassing master continuing to mature and grow; the other was at the Maurice Ravel Hall in Lyon and is from the amazing tour of the triumphant winner of The Rubinstein Masters Competition [every 3 years] in Israel.

      Any one with a love of the great keyboard literature will love this incredibly transcendent young master // Daniil Trifonov //

    I’ve found the same with many things, my own books included. Why would anyone think people would even consider paying over $1,000 for something they can get for less than 10. And new at that!🤔

    I’ve seen similar craziness when I look for stuff on Amazon, and especially Ebay.

    Makes you wonder who set those prices, and why. Maybe the most expensive one is hand-delivered by the artist?
