Re: Why there's always been so few operas?

No, that's not all. They are also

1. Hard to obtain
2. Time consuming to scan
3. Require specialized scanners
4. Time consuming to edit and compile

Re: Hugo Alfvén

There do not appear to be any libraries in the US that own a copy of this score.

Re: Why there's always been so few operas?

Why are there so few operas? Primarily because they are the lengthiest scores (by genre) to scan, edit, and upload. It takes quiet a long time to do this and often requires special scanners. Operas are often too much work for most to handle. But by all means, if you have an 800-page full score to a ...

Re: Jean Cras String Quartet

From what I can tell, the score was published in 1926 and isn't owned by very many libraries in the US. I might still be able to get it, so I'll put it on my list.

Re: Poulenc piano concerto

As best as I can tell, the full score was only ever available via rental; there doesn't seem to have been a miniature reduction produced. If you wanted to get your hands on the full score, you could most likely obtain just that via perusal loan from D/S/R. Some nominal fees would likely apply, but n...

Re: Prokofiev, Peter and the Wolf

I vote to remove. These cause more harm than good, especially now that the Gutheil parts are available.

Re: Galway recordings on Pandora Records/Archive

That's because, from what I can tell, it was published for the first time (with editor) in 2006.

Re: Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin

These are parts that were made available through The Orchestra Musician's CD-ROM Library (http://www.orchmusiclibrary.com/).

You say the two copies contain different musical content. Can you provide an example of this?

Re: International Music Company Engravings

In most countries, this type of mechanical reproduction never passes as an original contribution. We have several pieces on this site that fit into that category. It comes down to a "sweat of the brow" approach. While it is admirable and appreciated that such companies go to the time and e...

Re: Strauss Vocal Scores

Yes, this is something that our collection does lack as you point out. It is simply because contributors with these vocal scores haven't stepped forward to scan and/or upload them. Hopefully some will in the future.

Re: Anton Webern/Eric Smith translator

Well, there remains some serious question as to whether a translation is to be considered a contribution worthy of copyright extension. There doesn't appear to have ever been rulings on that question, but if memory serves, we made an internal judgement to disregard those translations when figuring e...

Re: Hindemith Organ Concerto 1964 schott

This piece was premiered by the New York Philharmonic on April 25, 1963 with soloist Anton Heiller. So as Carolus and Max have mentioned, once you upload this piece, provided it isn't edited or "contributed" by anyone other than Hindemith, it will be marked as public domain for Canada.
