Why don't I get a confirmation email or an invoice?
We are overwhelmed by your response. Unfortunately, it was also our mail server that broke down at some point. All orders should have reached us and you will receive a message as soon as we have cleared up the mess. Please bear with us. We, that's 2 people who do this besides the normal everyday life.

Which organizations are supported with the purchase price?
Half of the total purchase price goes to "FREO - Freie Ensembles und Orchester in Deutschland e.V." and half to the "Nothilfefond der Deutschen Orchesterstiftung", which are briefly introduced here: FREO e.V.
We are pleased and grateful that the organizers have decided to donate half of the proceeds to FREO e.V.. FREO e.V. is a young non-profit initiative that promotes the interests of free ensembles and orchestras and the independent musicians organized in them. The Covid 19 pandemic is hitting independent ensembles and orchestras particularly hard. The existential hardship is great. Lasting and profound damage, even the loss of numerous free, internationally renowned orchestras has become a bitter and tangible reality.
The free ensembles and orchestras need support - and that is exactly why FREO e.V. exists. We don't let ourselves get down, remain optimistic and help: through consulting, research, knowledge collection and transfer, networking and exchange of experiences and the continuous conversation with the political level.
The funds from this campaign support our commitment to the independent ensembles and orchestras and their musicians. Thank you very much!
FREO e.V. currently has 30 members: Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra, Auditivvokal Dresden, Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie, Berliner Symphoniker, Concerto Köln, Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, Dresdner Sinfoniker, Electronic ID, El Perro Andaluz, ensemble ascolta, Ensemble Aventure, Ensemble Modern, ensemble mosaik, Ensemble Musikfabrik, ensemble recherche, Ensemble Reflektor, Ensemble Resonanz, Freiburger Barockorchester, Kammerakademie Potsdam, Kammerphilharmonie Lübeck, Klangforum Heidelberg, Lautten Compagney Berlin, LUX: NM, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Neue Vocalsolisten, Orchester im Treppenhaus, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Sonar Quartett, Stegreif.

Nothilfefond der Deutschen Orchesterstiftung
(German Orchestra Foundation Emergency Fund)
The #MusikerNothilfe campaign has been collecting donations to help freelance musicians particularly affected by the effects of the pandemic since March 16, 2020, the beginning of the first Corona Lockdown in Germany. They have lost all public performance opportunities for many months. To date, we have received over 4.6 million euros in donations, enabling us to support more than 3,300 freelance musicians.
But it will take even longer before freelance musicians can stand on their own feet again with events and performances. To give these musicians of all styles a perspective that will help them bridge this difficult period, we are now supporting them in the #MusikerZukunft campaign with work grants of up to 2,000 euros. www.orchesterstiftung.de
Can I deduct the purchase from my taxes as a charitable donation?
No, unfortunately not. In Germany, donations are only charitable if they are made without a monetary consideration. The sheet music is this consideration. But we guarantee that the entire purchase price will be donated by the seller.
How can I pay?
Payment is only possible as a bank transfer in advance to keep the formalities for this spontaneous voluntary action as low as possible.
Can I return the sheet music?
Each sheet of music may have traces of performance, ranging from creases, fingerprints, to water and coffee stains. This makes each sheet unique besides the signature of Igor Levit. Therefore, the return is excluded except for severe damage during shipping.
Is the sheet of music framed?
What is the delivery time?
We will usually send the sheets by registered mail one week after receipt of payment on the account, so that you can expect the delivery after 2 weeks at the latest within Germany.
Internationally, the transit time can vary greatly from country to country.
Since shipping is organized free of charge by private individuals, we can unfortunately not guarantee delivery time.
Why can I buy a maximum of 2 music sheets?
Since we want to make it possible for many people to get hold of a sheet of music from the performance, we have decided to sell a maximum of 2 sheets to the same person.
