Misc. Notes

This is an urtext/critical/scholarly/scientific edition (or a simple re-engraving). Any commentary or critical apparatus, if protected by copyright, should not be included in the scan(s) available here.

In Canada, new editions/re-engravings of public domain works (when not including new original material) should be in the public domain due to failing to meet the threshold of originality. In most European Union countries, these editions (except new original material) are generally protected for no more than 25 years from publication (30 years in Poland), and only if the edition is published after the copyrights of the original creator(s) have expired. In the United States, copyright can only apply to new creative work, and the re-engraving of a public domain piece (not including new additions of creative material) should not qualify for a new copyright, despite copyright claims (which properly would only apply to new material).

You may need to check the publication date and details of the work's first publication in order to determine the work's copyright status, especially for the United States, as the copyright on the original work may not have expired.

The autograph of no.1 was placed for auction at Sotheby's with a description here including a description of the dedication. Both Medtner and Rachmaninoff "each composed a setting (of Muza) which they dedicated to her. Medtner's was published as his Op.29, no.1; for Rakhmaninov's see Lot 216." (Medtner also used several motifs from Op.29/1, and at least one other song from Op.29, in his Sonate-ballade Op.27 and in the piano quintet which occupied him for much of his life. However, the first movement, in which these songs appear, was basically already complete in 1904, so arguably the themes of these songs come from the quintet and not the other way around!)
