In England there is this rule about "typographical arrangement." Does that mean that if the Eulenburg score was printed in England, and the editor is not named, it only gets 25 years before it enters the public domain?
What about if the editor is named?
Or the foreword has a name and date but the score itself has no date or copyright notice?
Or if it is printed in Germany or Switzerland?
I'm assuming of course that the composer has been dead for well over 70 years - all the music that I tend to collect is usually baroque to romantic, the Reger being an exception.)
Eulenburg No. 5 (Leipzig) - Cherubini String Quartet in E flat. No date, no editor and no copyright notice anywhere. Looks old. (This one has "public domain" written all over it.)
Eulenburg No. 104 (England) - Beethoven Trio Op. 87 for 2 oboes and cor anglais. No date, no editor, no copyright notice. In good condition but the type looks old in style. (Public domain.)
Eulenburg No. 106 & 107 (Switzerland) - Dittersdorf String Quartets in D major and B flat major. "Revidiert von Wilhelm Altmann." Foreword by Prof. Dr. W. Altmann, Berlin 1938. Score itself has no date or copyright notice. (PD, except for the foreword?)
Eulenburg No. 275 (England) - Smetana String Quartet in E minor. No date, no editor, no copyright notice. Looks very old. (Public domain)
Eulenburg No. 373 (England) - Boccherini Serenade for 2 violins, bass, 2 oboes & 2 horns. "Edited from the original printed parts and with Foreword by Karl Haas." Score is marked "Copyright 1956 by Ernst Eulenburg Ltd". (First I thought PD because of the "typographical arrangement" rule, but would it depend on whether the editor was still alive?)
Eulenburg No. 375 (England) - Manfredini Concerto Grosso Op. 3 No. 12. "Revidiert und mit Vorwort versehen von Felix Schroeder." Foreword is dated February 1957. No date or copyright notice on the score itself. (as above?)
Eulenburg No. 521 (England) - J.C. Bach, Sinfonia in D Op. 18 No. 4. "Edited for the first time and with foreword by Alfred Einstein." Foreword dated 1934. No date or copyright notice on the score itself. (as above?)
Eulenburg No.522 (England)- J.C. Bach, Sinfonia in E flat Op. 9 No. 2. "Edited and with foreword by Fritz Stein." Foreword dated September 1935. Score has the notice "Copyright 1950 by Ernest Eulenburg Ltd." (Score = PD. Foreword - depending on editor?)
Eulenburg No. 773 (England) - J.C. Bach, Piano Concerto in E Flat. Revised by Ernst Pretorius. Foreword dated February 1937. No date or copyright notice on the score itself. (Same as the above?)
Eulenburg No. 776 (England) - Barsanti, Concerto Grosso in D Op. 3 No. 4. Edited and with foreword by Ernst Praetorius. Foreword dated July 1937. Score has notice "Copyright 1953 by Ernst Eulenburg, Ltd." (as above?)
Eulenburg No. 1218 (England) - Leo, Cello Concerto in D major. Edited by Felix Schroeder. Foreword dated 1958. No date or copyright notice on the score itself. (PD except for the foreword (typographical arrangement rule)? Or not PD yet until 2009?)
Eulenburg No. 1236 (England) - J.C. Bach, Sinfonia Concertante for Flute, Oboe, Violin, Cello & Orchestra. Edited and with foreword by C.R.F. Maunder. Foreword not dated. Score says "Copyright 1961 by E. Eulenburg, London." (Not PD until 2012? or PD due to the "typographical arrangement" rule?)
OK, so am I close? Or do I get to go to jail?
(if I was to start on the oldest scores and work forward, it would probably be 2012 before I got to the end anyway...)
