Re: Copyright status of modern composers on WIMA

If WIMA had permission for Taupin’s and Icking’s contributions these years is there any real need to ask that their respective estates would have reservations about the pieces being transferred from the original WIMA site to the IMSLP? In any case, Christian Mondrup would possibly have received lett...

Re: When is the publisher who has the copyright

I take it you mean cases where author ≠ publisher. If the publisher has no creative input into the piece, his or her death date is completely irrelevant. Having a printing press doesn’t give you moral rights over other people’s ideas that you happen to publish. On the other hand editors with suffici...

Re: Name This Mozart Work

The Maurerischer Trauermusik K 479/477a has five clarinets, if memory serves; it also has oboes, a contrabassoon (well, a “Gran Fagotto” at any rate), and strings. Can't think of a six-clarinet-only one just at the minute...

Re: Handel, HWV 337 vs 338

Check out the entry in the Händel Hand-Buch (HHB) or failing that, have a look on Brad Leissa’s web site.

Cheers, Philip

Re: Selling a work for free on IMSLP

I’m afraid I don’t have the pleasure of understanding what you would intend by this. The only alternatives to the Creative Common licences are public domain (which is not an option, for suggesting you can totally forgo your moral rights is more or less a legal fiction for living composers; copyright...

Re: IMSLP to merge with WIMA

Melodia, I think you’re referring to User:Victorio (Jürgen Knuth), who isn’t an anglophone if I remember correctly. If so, could one of our German speaking colleagues pass on a message for him to include something like “synthesised audio” in the “Misc. Notes” field of the upload page? This would be ...

Re: E. Carr, '2 Mansfield Poems' -> 'Two Mansfield Poems'

It’s worth noting that “poem” isn’t recognised by music librarians as a musical form; even Chausson’s Poème for violin and orchestra is categorised as a “piece”. “Poèmes symphoniques” are a different kettle of fish, apparently (and in that respect, the tagging of the Chausson may be incorrect). Carr...

Re: New public domain works

Well, the composer is wrong, legally. I see he’s explicitly answered my question (a), but is woefully uninformed on (b). If we supported CC-0 I’d suggest using that. Otherwise CC-by is closest to his intentions as far as they can be ascertained. Also, composer’s own versions can be “special” in that...

Re: New public domain works

Most countries nowadays observe copyright as innate to a creative work, so even if the composer does not put a notice of copyright on his works, it is there inherently anyway, and he also has moral rights as well. Some countries allow a creator to waive his or her rights, but this is the exception r...

Welcome Hans-Peter,

From memory, P.A. Jones has already made a head-start on uploading some of your pieces.

Re: Adeste Fideles

A hymn is a metrical poem on a religious subject. In practice Adeste fideles is an irregular hymn since the metre changes slightly from verse to verse, but usually a hymn can be identified by the characteristics of verse poetry: 1. Regular metre (and yes, some hymns are “irregular”!) 2. Rhyming patt...

Re: Submitting Parts of an Arrangement

Make sure you’re clicking the “Add multiple files” option below where it says “Scores”. It sounds like you pressed the corresponding button in the section above, which is for Recordings.
