  1. Composer must be under copyright protection in Canada;
  2. No significant compositions prior to 1923 available on IMSLP·US;

Non-Public Domain Composers

Composers are added to the category Non-Public Domain People, but not to the categories People or Composers.

Thus the subset of composers fitting these criteria can be inspected using the Category Walker (by means of excluding “People” from the “Non-Public Domain People”: thus).

As of 25 July 2011 it consists of the following four composers:

  1. Dmitry Kabalevsky
  2. Fritz Kreisler
  3. Astor Piazzolla
  4. Dmitry Shostakovich
