Talk:Symphonie sur un Chant Montagnard Français, Op.25 (Indy, Vincent d')

Carolus, in case you come across this page, I meant to ask you if this Int'l ed. was truly a reprint of the Hamelle or a re-engraving. I'm not very familiar with Int'l's practices in the way of reprints/re-engravings, but I did notice both this and the Hamelle had the same number of pages. Since I couldn't (yet) get my hands on the Hamelle, I've been unable to verify if this is a re-print or not. Daphnis 08:56, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

International Editions

Hi, The confusion is certainly understandable as they usually do new editions (typically adding slurs, articulations, fingerings by one of their "name" editors on top of an old engraving) and claim full copyright for them. In a few cases - study scores and vocal scores - they're simply reprinting an earlier item. Note the lack of a copyright claim on this score. It merely states "published by International Music Co. - 1947." It's a straightforward reprint of the Hamelle and PD everywhere as far as I can tell - absolutely PD in the USA.

Thanks, Carolus, for clarifying. In a totally unrelated statement, would you mind checking the publisher info. on the vocal score I submitted for Wagner's 'Die Feen'? I'm hoping to finish the collection of his vocal scores ('The Ring' being first) sometime before the re-opening (along with d'Indy's catalogue and several others). Many thanks!

That Die Feen VS looks like a later engraving (ca.1910) than 1883, though several OCLC entries give the Heckel score a 1903 date. However, the Heckel is listed as 359 pages, vs. 381 for the one here. I wonder if our friends at CDSM scanned one of the VS issued as part of the Schott/Breitkopf series of Wagner's complete works that came out around 1910-1915. I know they printed both full and vocal scores. Carolus 21:02, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

Remember that the overture provided by the CDSM folks is a separate arrangement for piano 4 hands (pub. by Heckel), accounting for the 22 of 381 pages (making the 359 pages by Heckel plausible). I haven't been able to find any specific info. regarding the overture, however. Daphnis 21:56, 1 May 2008 (EDT)
