The Society of Slovene Composers announces monthly sale of sheet music for keyboard instruments
The Society of Slovene Composers (DSS) is a voluntary professional association of composers and musicologists.
The founding of the Society opened up significant new opportunities for Slovene composers: the Society started out by organising public performances, but in 1954 widened its field of activity by including a publishing section (Edicije DSS) and establishing contacts with other European publishing houses. Up to date, Edicije DSS has published 2,350 compositions by Slovene composers. Edicije DSS also publishes the collection of compact discs Ars Slovenica, each of which features the works of a specific Slovene composer. Some 100 compact discs with works by Slovene composers have been published up to date.
The April Sale is dedicated to sheet music for keyboard instruments. The Society offers a 25% discount on all publications and compact discs that include at least one composition for a keyboard instrument.
Orders can be placed by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the content of your shopping cart comes to more than €100, P & P is free.
The sale only lasts until the end of April (30 April 2018), so don’t miss the opportunity!
