Not that I could find either. I can often figure things out by ear, and I might have been able to make a transcription of it for you, but I listened, and I couldn't tell which part was which, especially in the middle ranges. Too many notes for me to keep track of. I think someone more qualified (or working directly with the composer) would have to do it.

Did you try his contact page? http://www.philipglass.com/contact.php

I have contacted several composers on behalf of my daughter for sheet music/recordings and all have been very lovely. One had us wait a couple weeks and then we were able to purchase the sheet music online, and some have sent us the music we couldn't buy anywhere else and one sent a full score (very long and interesting for my daughter to see all the parts). Anyway, if you have exhausted all other possibilities, you might give it a try.

That occurred to me too, but I had never tried it. Good to know it works. smile

If no score exists, just make one.

I sent email to both info@dunvagen.com,and rental@schirmer.com.
Only auto response so far, no human contact yet.
It is a duet but I couldn't tell if it is one piano 4 hands or two piano 4 hands. I could write a score, but it will be very time consuming......

Having watched the movie clip, it's one piano 4 hands, with the secundo's right hand reaching behind the primo's back and playing in the upper treble ranges for part of the piece. The pair to play this duet would have to be pretty comfortable with each other. smile
