Talk:Symphony in C major (Bizet, Georges)
Kalmus Orchestra Score and Parts
- These files are of the 'neatly penned' Kalmus Edition. I have corrected all the typographic errors I was made aware of by fellow players. The scans have been cleaned and retouched. E.g. removal of unused staff lines, other poor printing.

- The Choudens parts (which are what Kalmus reprints now) are now uplaoded. I think they pre-date the Kalmus manuscript, but I don't know that for sure. I do know that Kalmus stopped issuing the particular MSS parts (and the score) you posted about 10 years ago, after obtaining a set of the Choudens. Carolus 06:00, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Wasn't this work not only first performed but first discovered and published in and in or after 1935, respectively? What is the US-copyright status of its manuscript and published scores, anyway? Eric 00:23, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I am also wondering about the copyright. I found the following in one of the San Francisco Ballet's program notes (http://www.sfballet.org/performancestickets/2011season/program2/program2notes.asp):
Production Credits: Music—Symphony No. 1 in C Major; used by arrangement with European American Music Distributors Corporation, sole U.S. and Canadian agent for Universal Edition Vienna, publisher and copyright owner.
I still see the score listed on http://www.universaledition.com with a Licensing Request link.
- The fact that Kalmus is reprinting and selling the score and parts for this indicates that the US copyright is dead. This is normally due to a failure to renew or a failure to have the proper notice appear (including on later printings). The work is not eligible for NIE restoration because it is public domain in the country of origin on 1/1/1996 (posthumous works of this nature are protected for 25 years from publication at most in the EU nations).
