Category talk:Shostakovich, Dmitri Dmitrievich

Based on the list of works at Wikipedia, it looks like only Op. 1-6 could be in the public domain.--Emeraldimp 22:35, 27 October 2006 (EDT)

it is such a pity that this beautiful composer's works are not only not in the public domain, but practically unavailable in the U.S. --This unsigned comment was made by Perlnerd666 17:28, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

May I once again make the suggestion that we should have appropriately “black bordered” pages for non-PD composers?
The way I envisage this being done is:
  • Use a modified version of the general composer template.
  • The design would retain the name, date, picture, etc, but use a completely different colour scheme.
  • It might even have this wonderful image at the head of the page, beside the copyright warning. (Look right! —>>)

  • The options to “Add a piece to this composer page” would be unavailable.
  • The Contents list would be missing. (i.e. Contents: Top - A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z)
  • The page would be locked down to prevent editing except by a sysop and the "How to edit this template" link would be missing.
The only permissible links would be to Wikipedia for a bio, a catalogue of works, etc., e.g. List of compositions by Havergal Brian, by catalog number
Any better ideas? Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 13:02, 10 December 2008 (AEDT)
