Tacet approval

If you’ve ever wanted a copy of the sheet music to John Cage’s 4’33”, sheetmusicplus.com has it for $5.95.

Then again, a comment to the product page might conceivably undermine the deal:

[W]hy purchase it for probably a total sum of 15 bucks (currency exchange, shipping, taxes), when most people have it memorized already?

    I suspect my piano teacher would not approve me choosing that as a recital piece. OTOH, it would mean any stage fright I suffered could be seen as integral to the performance.

    I bet I could play that by ear.
