Category talk:Tassistro, Pietro

Based on the © date of his compositions (not a mere claim on Carmar's part; see Library of Congress also) he very likely died before 1920, unless they are Kreisler-like forgeries and the information in the LoC, for example, similarly hacked. This is possible but a risk that could be taken in "good faith" under most law, I think. That is, a composer known to have written something published in the 1810s can be considered not to have his works under copyright; ask a copyright lawyer, however, if the situation in Canada and EU is in agreement with my "heuristic" reasoning.

Grove's Dictionary mentions only that Eugenio Cavallini was a student of Pietro Tassistro's prior to 1817, with no other informaton provided on the latter. Some web-sites give dates for Tassistro of "181?-187?" [sic], but this clearly doesn't tally with the entry in Grove (unless there was more than one composer of the same name). I think we're on safer ground assuming a late-18th century birthdate — P.davydov 07:58, 13 March 2009 (EDT)

I see the "181?-187?" but Grove's is I would agree a preferable source. Hopefully something even more authoritative will turn up. Eric 21:17, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't bet on it. Even MusicSack turns up no results (something I have literally never seen before)... KGill talk email 17:43, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
