Copyright Stuff

Hi Lyndon,

I don't know if you saw my answer to your question about Soviet editions over at Feldmahler's, but just in case I'll try and give you my take on the issue. First of all, even though the present Russian law gives a term of life-plus-70, it applies only to authors who died in 1953 or later (like Prokofiev). Copyright in the old USSR was initially abolished altogether (the Czarist regime had a generous life-plus-50 term), which had the effect of rendering the works of Soviet citizens ineligible for copyright in the US and in other countries. A very limited term of 15 years from publication was put in place in the Staliin era, with gradual expansion to 30 years by the time the USSR signed the Universal Copyright Convention (not the same as Berne) in the early 1970s.

Only after Congress enacted the GATT/TRIPS amendment in 1994-95 (effective 1/1/96), did composers like Shostakovich and Prokofiev achieve full eligibility. That's how all those works that were formerly PD were suddenly 'restored' to copyright status (95 years from initial publication date) - much to the annoyance of numerous orchestras in the USA. Editors or creators of derivative works had little if any protection under the Soviet system and apparently fared only slighty better under the post-Soviet laws. Mere re-engravings aren't eligible for copyright in the US even now, though they do enjoy limited terms (25-50 years) in some European countries. Thus the 1954 Balakirev edition you posted is very likely free here in the US. As I mentioned over at Feldmahler's, Dover, Kalmus, and Lucks all continue to reprint Soviet-era editions of Tchaikovsky and other PD composers with total impunity - even editions issued as late as the 1960s and 70s. I think you're probably fairly safe in this area - even though the case law is less than clear on the issue due to the very small number of cases which have come up over the years. -- Carolus 31 December 2006 (EST)

Anonymous Question

An anonymous IMSLP contributor (which I correspond with via e-mail) wanted me to ask you whether you also had the score of Scriabin's Prometheus: Poem of Fire, since he noticed that you submitted Poem of Ecstasy, and that Dover reprints both in the same volume. Though I did notice that you didn't personally scan Poem of Ecstasy...

Anyway, he is asking this half out of curiosity and half because he would like to see Prometheus on IMSLP. :) (btw, I'm just the messenger hehe) --Feldmahler 19:53, 3 March 2007 (EST)

Yes, that is a completely different edition which I did not scan. I own the Dover volume and will try to get around to scanning it at some point-- I'm getting a new scanner very soon so I look forward to getting to work on scanning some interesting things.

I have replied...

Please check your inbox, both on the forum and in your mail. I have finally replied. --Funper 20:48, 5 April 2007 (EDT)

Still want that reward? I guess I am a little late, but I just recently ordered an external hardriver. It should arrive in about a week or 5 days, then I will be able to upload the recordings, if you still want them ofcoarse.. --Funper 15:25, 12 April 2007 (EDT)
I have your reward. I will provide a link in your forum-inbox. --Funper 11:20, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Score Request

Dear Goldberg, many thanks for uploading the two movements from Blanchet's En Turquie, I have been looking the world over for a score of the piece! Is there any chance you could upload the remaining movements? That would make me very happy. Best, Xleopold

I will upload them directly... I hesitated to upload them before because they are unfortunately covered in handwritten annotations, but I will put them up nevertheless. --Goldberg988 09:37, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

saint-saëns trio

Great! Great! Great! I've been looking for that score for months... Thanks Peter 05:56, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

Rheinberger version of Goldberg Variations

Dear Goldberg, I saw on your page that you are looking for the 2 piano version of the Goldberg Var. - wonderful! Do let me know if you find that Rheinberger score. Also, you might enjoy playing it yourself... is there anyone in your vicinity that you enjoy playing 4 hand repertoire with? - Best, mhurshell

Yes, I did find the Rheinberger score and will be scanning it soon... It looks very interesting. I often play duets with some of the other students at my school. Right now I am working on the Lutoslawski Paganini variations with another pianist. Playing with other pianists is something I really enjoy! --Goldberg988 09:24, 26 April 2007 (EDT)
 : That´s great, I´m looking forward!! Lutuslawski, that is a VERY fun piece... enjoy yourself! I recommend playing symphonic literature, too (Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, whatever one gets one´s hands on). While not as useful for public performance, it is absolutely addictive stuff. - mhurshell, 21:12, April 26 2007 (German time)
Just saw you uploaded the Goldberg f 2 pianos - THANKS. I really must find someone here to play this with, or at least play through it.  :)  :)  :) mhurshell, May 5, 5:30 p.m. (German time)


I have your reward. And I have provide a link in your forum-inbox. Please respond. --Funper 11:47, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

"Ungarischer Sturmmarsch, S.524" or "Ungarischer Sturmmarsch [1st version], S.232

Hi Lyndon. You said earlier that you had Neue Liszt-Ausgabe in your university. If it is not to much, could you scan (or you might have already scanned):

  • Ungarischer Sturmmarsch (Neue Bearbeitung 1876) S.524


  • Seconde marche hongroise (Ungarischer Sturmmarsch) [1st version], S.232

both are from Volume 16 (PIANO VERSIONS OF HIS OWN WORKS II), Series I, Plate ZA 8859.

--Funper 05:09, 28 April 2007 (EDT)

Thank you

…for all your hard graft in uploading the Medtner piano concertos. I love these works (particularly No. 2) and I have been hoping to find full scores of them - I once borrowed the score of No. 2 from the British Library but alas the copy had been bound with pages missing! I hope you will consider uploading the piano quintet after you've done the first concerto… And if you have it can you do the wonderful Dithyramb Op. 10 No. 2, please? - I haven't been able to find a copy anywhere.

I have old copies of the full scores of the Arensky, Tovey, Paderewski and Moszkowski piano concertos, and Scharwenka No. 2. Are these public domain? If so, I would be interested in submitting copies - I would like to give something back to the IMSLP. Unfortunately I don't yet have a scanner (it's on my shopping list) but even when scanned, I don't know how to convert images into PDFs. Can you offer me any advice - or give me a link to some - so I can see what I would need? --Romeo Golf 08:00, 30 April 2007 (EDT)


Hi Lyndon,

Just a note to thank you for your great high quality scans of great works! I left you a star on your user page. I can't wait for the Beethoven trios!

Cheers, Peter talk 14:58, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Hey, that's pretty cool. Thanks for the star. I'll be getting to the trios next, just as soon as I finish with juries! --Goldberg988 00:58, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

dohnanyi piano concerto

Hi thank you for uploading scores esp. rare ones! Please could you lokk again at the piano concerto because I cannot access it the link doesn't work? Thank you, steven


Glad you weree interested in some of the scores I've posted. If you're not familiar with Bortkiewicz's works, you should really check them out as he wrote an incredible amount of great piano music. How he isn't better known and in the standard repertoire is beyond me.Mitch 21:51, 2 June 2007 (EDT)

No.4 in Db Major from Lamentations & Consolations is a really beautiful piece, but in my opinion the rest of the opus isn't as consistently good as some of his other works. I think his best works are the Etudes Op.15, some of the Etudes from Op.29, Preludes Op.33, the Ballade Op.42, & the Elegie Op.46. I've learned quite a few of these myself and feel it was time well spent. There's also some pretty good recordings of most of these by Stephen Coombs or Cyprien Katsaris.Mitch 18:56, 3 June 2007 (EDT)


Hi Lyndon, thats great! Lets fill the Thalberg category :)
Just seen that Op.40, 50, 63 have duplicate workpages, I created them some minutes before. In case that these are different editions I'll consolidate the pages or otherwise mark them for deletion. you agree? Hobbypianist 19:29, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Yes, I noticed that too... at first I thought I just hadn't noticed them, but then I realized we had uploaded them at about the same time! Consolidation is a great idea, if the editions are in fact different (I know a few of them were from the same edition, so you can just delete mine.) Thanks! --Goldberg988 20:28, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
Done. I copied your uploaded file of Op.63 (edition from Breitkopf) to the first created workpage. The other two, Op.40 and 50 are indeed exact duplicates of the files which already existed. Hobbypianist 07:08, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Hey Lyndon, I noticed that you've posted 8 pieces from Thalberg's Op.70. Are you planning on uploading the rest? If not I can go ahead and upload a score with all 24. It appears to be from the same edition that your scores came from. Let me know. Also, do either of you know if Op.35 possibly contains 2 nocturnes? I have a nocturne that has printed Op.35 No.2 on the cover. It is in Db Major and does not appear to match any of the other nocturnes that have been posted.--Mitch 19:35, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Mitch: I've exhausted all of the Thalberg that I have, unfortunately, so go ahead and upload the whole set. If it's from the same edition just go ahead and delete the ones I added to the work page. I don't what to tell you on the op.35, I looked on WorldCat and could find no reference to another work in that opus. I would just put it up as 'Nocturne in D-flat major, Op.35 No.2' and leave it at that. Thanks, --Goldberg988 20:28, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
Well, I looked again at the Op.70 and only some of them (the same pieces you had posted) were uncopyrighted. All the others were from a new typeset edtion from 2003 so I guess I can't post the rest after all. I'll go ahead and upload the nocturne. Thanks, for the rest of your Thalberg uploads, there were several pieces in there that had been missing from my collection--Mitch 21:04, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Welcome to adminship!

As per our discussion, I'm happy to grant you adminship for IMSLP :) You've already done great work here, so I believe you would be a great admin too. You can find the IMSLP administration policies on the policy page. Don't hesitate to ask me questions should they arise :)

If you plan on doing copyright reviewing (via the tags), please make sure you know the public domain criteria well. You may start out first just observing what the other admins are doing, and then try your hand at the ones that you know are public domain for sure :) --Feldmahler 16:26, 11 June 2007 (EDT)

Congrats! --Emeraldimp 18:48, 11 June 2007 (EDT)



unfortunately the sextet is not in our library. As an admin, are you able to delete the double enty of Karl Goldmark I did erroneously ? Chamberpianist 13:52, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

Chamberpianist, if you're referring to the Goldmark, karl (as opposed to Karl) page, I've already deleted it. :-) --Emeraldimp 14:55, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

Debussy songs

Goldberg, I saw that you are preparing the Debussy songs for scanning/upload. Are you planning on doing just the ones in the Dover reprint, or all in the PD? I ask because I've finished all of Ravel's songs that are eligible for upload and was planning on tackling Debussy's songs next. Should I cease and desist? Daphnis 23:36, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

Well, I wouldn't be starting anytime soon seeing as how I've still to scan Daphnis et Chloe and L'Heure Espagnole for IMSLP (I've already done L'enfant et les Sortileges). The Dover reprints the original Durand editions anyway, but whatever you'd like to do. I can provide a complete list of his songs and perhaps those that are NOT in the PD.

Medtner: Collected works

One thousand and one thanks for your great effort to scan the collected works of Medtner! Medtner enthusiasts all over the world will be eternally grateful for your work! Your scans are excellent, and your choice of including all the pages both before and after the music in each volume reveals both intellect, talent and good taste! Keep up the good work! If I knew how to give you stars, I would give you ten!

Best regards Jorn


Nice with the Grieg EG109 piece ! ,but i think i have spotted a few wrong notes! Bar 4 : Last G (Upper staff F ?) Bar 6 and 35 F# not F (D7 chord) SURE Bar 28 First quarter note left hand -upper note Ab not A# The rest is brilliant!! IT will be even better with this changes !! Good luck!!

Thanks, I'm not sure if I even have the original Finale file from that (It was a long time ago) but if I find it I will fix it right away. Thanks for keeping me on my toes! --Goldberg988 09:16, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

Got some training looking in my own scores :) Go on with it -and make more.!! Please scream up if you see something wrong in my scores too!! I will just be happy! -Abra

Clementi, among others

Thank you for all the work you've done with just for example the Clementi sonatas. (It is difficult finding a good list of even just their keys anywhere on the net, as I found when trying to compile a worklist for en Wikipedia. The very basic data aside from their keys, it's true, one can find at eg and a few other places. (Alan Tyson's thematic catalog I don't count since it's in print only, though my university library is not so great a hike and I believe they have it. But your work both reduces others' need for the same, and increases exposure, is what I do mean to say after so much digression and divagation, and thanks! and it's good to find someone else with an interest in the music of Nikolai Medtner. I have Tropp's recording of the op. 47 but no score, which I now see is easily rectified - thanks again; though to keep local © authorities happier- I hope- I shall not keep it more than necessary for an audition or two. ) Eric 09:06, 10 September 2007 (EDT)

A. Rubinstein- Sonata 3. Opus 41.

Dear Goldberg. Like many others , I am very grateful for all the work you have done , including Thalberg However , perhaps I may ask you to look at the Rubinstein Sonata again as page 94 of the original print appears to be missing . Sadly , as I am a couple of generations down the line from your goodself I do not know how easy/difficult this would be to correct but I will be very grateful if the page can be produced. SpliOctaves-Ringwood England.


Bonjour Lyndon, tout d'abord merci pour vos précieuses contributions.

Je suis à la recherche de la partition conducteur du concerto N°1 en fa# mineur de Mily Balakirev et j'ai pensé que vous pourriez peut-être m'aider et m'indiquer où je pourrais soit l'acheter soit la louer.

Par avance merci pour votre aide et bonne continuation dans votre carrière.

Hi, Nice to see you back in these parts again! The poster of the Rzewski informed me that he will be contacting the composer about permission to post here. Rzewski has permitted a number of things to be distributed online at no charge, including all of the files over at WIMA. He may very well OK things to be posted here as well in light of several statements over the years about excess copyright, etc. At any rate, I'm planning on leaving the files in place, tagged non-PD (thanks), until I get some sort of indication of what the composer wishes to do. Carolus 00:22, 5 July 2008 (EDT)

Part Request

Hello! Would you mind uploading the clarinet part to the Brahms sonatas? Thank you.

AznInvazn2359 10:49, 5 July 2008 (EDT)


Hi Lyndon,

I just remembered that Medtner - even though a Russian composer who died in 1951 and would theoretically be PD in the EU - emigrated to the UK in 1936. This means that the full life-plus-70 term applies for the EU. USA status is tricky as well for works first published after 1922. Many were published in Germany by Zimmermann, so I'm marking those published 1923 and later PD in the USA only if they appear in the Dover volumes, or if they were fist published in the Soviet Union. It's a complicated mess, but the following site appears to give a fairly decent account. Sorry to create more confusion than ususal! Carolus 22:01, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Schmitt piano quintet

Hi. Thanks for the Schmitt scans so far--it really lightens my load! Question: are you going to finish scanning the score/parts to this work? Any other Schmitt contributions you can make? Thanks again. Daphnis 18:37, 10 November 2008 (EST)

Thanks for the kind word. I am planning on finishing it very soon. Sibley of course has some other works of his that I could scan, but I wasn't really planning on it, unless its something that you can't get your hands on. I just happened to scan the Quintet because it's such a truly awesome work. --Goldberg988 19:58, 10 November 2008 (EST)

Ok glad to hear. As you may know I'm actually in the midst of an on-going project to upload Schmitt's complete works (hopefully all before the 1st of next year), so if there something I can't get that Sibley has, I may ask your help with that. Thanks. Daphnis 20:03, 10 November 2008 (EST)

I just got my (study) score in today from the nice folks at Yale. Let me know if for some reason you can't/won't submit the rest. I actually have never heard the piece, which is why I'm trying desperately to find a recording although they are hard to come by, primarily being that it was only recorded (on CD) once or twice? Daphnis 18:12, 11 November 2008 (EST)
Don't worry, I will finish it, but probably not before this weekend. As far as I know, only one complete recording exists (on LP and later on CD) and I have (so far unsuccessfully) tried to obtain a copy. There is also a more widely available recording of Schmitt himself playing just the 2nd movement with the Calvet Quartet. --Goldberg988 18:43, 11 November 2008 (EST)
Also, I noticed that one of your planned projects is the complete Saint-Saens works, and for this project I would be glad to help. I was planning on scanning all of the vocal scores to his operas, for which Sibley has some excellent exemplars of the original editions. --18:45, 11 November 2008 (EST)
I have requested a copy of the CD (on the Accord label if I recall) and am hopeful I'll get it at some point. Have you played or heard this piece played yourself?
As for Saint-Saëns, that project will come after the completion of this Schmitt project and my next one which will be Fauré. I'd love some help on these projects as it sure is a lot of work on my part, but I feel incredibly worthwhile in the end. What type of scanning equipment do you have? I ask because the full score to Samson et Dalila will likely require an A3 scanner, even from the Dover score, and this work is essential to have. Daphnis 18:51, 11 November 2008 (EST)
Well, right now I am using the scanner at Sibley (they make some available to students) and it happens to be VERY large format -- probably at least 13 by 19 inches. That came in handy with the Schmitt, since I am scanning from a very large full size score, approx. 11 by 14 inches. --Goldberg988 19:16, 11 November 2008 (EST)
Good work on the Schmitt pieces. They look great and it makes my scanners thank you! Also great contribution with the Debussy score orchestrated by Caplet. His quintet for piano and winds is amazing, but unfortunately not PD in Canada or anywhere else. Daphnis 22:19, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Again, great scans on the sonatine and sonata. It's GREATLY appreciated. Daphnis 18:22, 18 November 2008 (EST)

Saint-Saens vocal scores

How many remain in your mini-project? Daphnis 13:54, 11 December 2008 (EST)

Well, there are about 15 in all. Some are longer than others. I have scanned four so far. I'm quite busy with end-of-semester work until Monday, when I plan on getting to work on it some more. If you want to help, that would be appreciated! --Goldberg988 14:51, 11 December 2008 (EST)
Yeah, I'm pretty busy myself with these other projects. No rush on the operas, just checking since I haven't looked into how many and what we have. Daphnis 14:53, 11 December 2008 (EST)

Hi Goldberg. I'm close to being ready to starting in on the Saint-Saëns project and since you and Jsnfmn are both contributing I thought I'd check to see how the vocal scores to the operas are going along since he mentioned he may start in on one himself. Best wishes. Daphnis 11:20, 11 January 2009 (EST)

Goldberg, are you currently working on any of the following SS scores?: Ascanio (vocal), Le Foi (vocal)
I want to be sure I'm not doubling something you may have in process. Daphnis 10:02, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Knock knock? Daphnis 09:04, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Page protection

After the latest vandalism spree I decided to preemptively change the protection level of all sysops' user and talk pages (including yours). The pages can still be edited by every user as before, but only sysops are now able to rename the page using the "move" button. --Leonard Vertighel 07:29, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Dvorak Piano Concerto

I can't seem to open the 2-piano reduction of the Dvorak Piano Concerto. It says that the file is corrupted. I have been looking desperately for a copy of it. Where could I find it in print? Thanks!

Andrew Stephens

I have checked the file, and it seems to be fine. What operating system and browser are you using? What program are you using to open the pdf file? Check to make sure that all of these programs are up-to-date. You shouldn't have any problem using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, unless there is a problem with the download. I'm afraid that I can't remember the website where I bought the print edition of the concerto, but I do believe it is still available to purchase. --Goldberg988 06:28, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Thank you very very much for the Korngold's opera. The only thing someoune can criticize is that there is too much light on some pages. For example, in 132 can hardly read the signs of the harp.

Sorry, but I had to scan it from an old microfilm copy of the score. Original copies of the score are extremely rare, but if you really need to read something then I guess you will have to track one down. --Goldberg988 20:51, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Clementi, Op.1bis

Hi Goldberg988. I'm wondering where you got the 5 piano sonatas by Muzio Clementi. I was looking at the file uploaded (in 2006), and the copyright says it is part of the public domain, but I highly doubt this due to the style of the typeset, and the fact that there is no publisher information. I would suspect this is a modern typeset, and should therefor be under a creative commons license. Perhaps this (error?) is in part due to the fact that it was uploaded when the site was still getting off the ground. Three main questions: Is this your typeset? If not, did you have permission to upload it? If so, which license do you want to be selected? Please get back to me on this, as it may be a legal issue, BKhon 04:04, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Let me jump in here to mention that this is a case of an older, pre-shutdown upload of a typeset where the editor or typesetter is not credited. At present, we normally delete such unattributed typesets under the speedy deletion rule. However, these older typesets have been here a long time with no complaints and probably aren't sufficiently original to qualify for copyright status anyway. Since there aren't many of them around, we tag them C/C/C. If someone complains, we get rid of them as they really aren't needed very much for the collection here.
