Talk:Adagio for Strings (Barber, Samuel)

Public Domain-ness

As I was putting the dates in the wishlist I looked up adagio for strings at wikipedia to see the date of composition (I was sure he didn't make it before he was 12). It was composed in 1938 well after 1923. I'm just wondering how to ensure that the piece and this edition are public domain. -Horndude77 23:51, 4 August 2006 (CDT)

  • It's the slow movement of his string quartet in B minor, Op.11 - apparently published both as string quartet and with the arrangement of the slow movement for string orchestra ©1939 by Schirmer. So it conceivably might be PD-US in 2035 and PD-CA in 2032, though I tend to doubt it. Eric 16:38, 11 August 2018 (CEST)
