CPE Bach "Kenner und Liebhaber" collections

I wrote a similar post to this on the CPE Bach page's discussion section, but it might be more useful to post it here. Currently, the six Kenner und Liebhaber collections by CPE Bach are listed in (non-original) descriptively titled pages (which, weirdly, are in German), listed with the Wq numbers. ...

Spelling guidelines?

Is there a set of guidelines as to which spelling standard is preferred, specifically US versus UK/International spelling? I have noticed that many of my contributions have had "colour" (the way I normally spell the word) changed to "color", presumably to follow US spelling conve...

Re: Quality of my scans?

There's definitely something amiss with the rating system. I've seen huge, full-colour manuscript scans with a one-star rating, and greyscale jpg scans of about 70-150dpi with five-star ratings.

It's not very logical!

Re: Copyright status, Telemann concerto

Did this mange to get completed at all? Just a scan of the manuscripts would be quite handy. It doesn't seem to be published at all. Hi Richety, sorry I'm only getting around to replying now. I did typeset the whole concerto, but I shelved it for a while because some other projects took precedence!...

Re: RSL Manuscript scans

I obtain results when I type e.g. Muzio Clementi into the search field, but obviously they are modern documents, not scans. :( Yeah, it's a slightly clunky interface - plus, the 'English' option only translates the main headings, not the entries themselves, or even the categories on the left. I use...

Re: RSL Manuscript scans

From what I can see, they can't possibly be 300dpi - there's quite a lot of jpeg artifacting. The library in question is actually the National Library of Russia, not the Russian State Library, as I said in my post yesterday. The catalogue [here] was working for me yesterday, but I can't find anythin...

RSL Manuscript scans

The Russian State Library has got some manuscript scans up on its website, but they appear to be embedded in some sort of flash protocol. They're not very high quality (they look about 150dpi to me), so they're obviously not using something similar to zoomify. Here's their scan of the autograph of M...

Mozart: fragment of K.331 autograph

The National Széchényi Library in Budapest have digitised the section of the autograph of Mozart Sonata in A, K.331 which was discovered in their collection last year. [See the dedicated website here: http://mozart.oszk.hu/index_en.html ] Just wondering what the copyright status of those four images...

Re: Status request, Graupner Double Concerto

Yes, it's a fairly ridiculous state of affairs that someone can copyright a 300-year-old work (or, at least, claim to do so) simply by being fortunate enough to publish it before anyone else. I presume, then, that I could potentially claim editio princeps for the few Graupner cantatas I've edited. N...

Status request, Graupner Double Concerto

Just wondering about potential copyright status of Concerto for 2 Violins in G minor, GWV 335 by Christoph Graupner. It was published by A-R Editions in 1996 - but also seems to have been copied out twice by Friedrich Noack (about 1942?). Both of Noack's copies (Mus Ms 1729) have been digitised by U...

Re: Copyright status, Telemann concerto

Right now, I'm focusing on getting some Graupner scores finished - Two cantatas and Violin Concerto. I'm pottering away at the Telemann as I have time - I have the whole of the first movement (by far the longest) typeset, though. I've had to make quite a few corrections to the source, though. One pa...

Re: Copyright status, Telemann concerto

Well, the only known source is a set of parts - very importantly, not autograph. In fact, they contain so many errors that they can't possibly be. Does that settle the matter then?

Copyright status, Telemann concerto

Just wondering about the copyright status of a Telemann work, Violin Concerto in A Major, TWV 51:A4 'Die Relinge'. It appears to have been first recorded in 1999 under Philip Pickett, and published in a critical edition in 2001. Does making a new edition from the source (a set of parts in Rheda) vio...

Re: Lost works you would most like to hear or find the score

Evidently, over 100 cantatas by J.S. Bach are lost, and I often wonder what those were like. One can only imagine how much wonderful music has been lost, possibly never to be heard again.

Re: Searching Mozart Oboe concerto k 314 Manuscript and Fial

Apologies in advance for reviving an old thread! There is a colour reproduction of the sketch in question in the NMA Skizzen volume (X/30/3), where it is referred to as Skb 1777α. It would also appear that at some point between 1986 (when the Kritischer Bericht volume was published) and 1998 (when t...
