Talk:Fantasie on the Mad Scene from Lucia di Lammermoor, Op.57 (Brod, Henri)

Universal Edition

This appears to be a corrected version of the original Ricordi edition. Quoting from the forward (by Gunter Joppig):

A number of obvious errors were tacitly corrected, and divergent readings ... were made uniform, in doubtful cases referring to the vocal score...

It's a ca.1982 engraving. Definitely not a reprint of a Ricordi - unless Ricordi happened to have issued a new engraving of the piece themselves in the 1960s or 1970s. I even recognize the engraver - EMB of Budapest. Sort of interesting that there would no editorial credit or copyright claim. Especially odd in light of their claims with respect to the Mahler critical edition, which are corrected reprints of earlier engravings made before 1915. Carolus 07:26, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

I hope I haven't messed things up here... UE made a copyright claim - the words which I removed prior to making the PDF. I understand that error corrections do not constitute a copyright claim - which is why I quoted form the forward. (I gather that the forward itself is under copyright). The engraving, I understand, is copyright for 25 years in EU, and 0 years in Canada. --Homerdundas 07:36, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

OK, That changes things (probably). Did they credit an editor also? The trouble with the USA status is they are making a claim - which we would have to disprove in court. If we had 1/100th of Google's money, I'd probably call their bluff and drag their sorry behinds into court. However, we aren't really in a position to do that. Perhaps you should obtain a scan of the original Ricordi print which could be posted above what's there now. Please do replace the page with the copyright claim. I'll have to put a [TB] on it for now, at any rate. Carolus 07:50, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Other than Gunter Joppig, there is no editor listed. The forward details nothing, but the corrections. --Homerdundas 08:14, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I know this is really annoying. At any rate, we just passed 44,000 so I am going to shut down here. Carolus 08:27, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
