Pleyel, 6 Duos for Viola, B.538-543

Postby emeraldimp » Tue May 01, 2012 1:14 am

Hi all!

I got an email the other day from someone looking for a place to put some scores; I'm directing him to the site for now, but I thought I'd check on one of the files he sent me.

It looks to be a transcription for two Violas of,_B.538-543 ... ,_Ignaz%29 . The publisher is International Music Company, transcribed and edited by Carl Paasch, plate No. 2542.

As near as I can tell, the only difference is that the viola version is down a fifth; exactly what you'd expect. I don't think it's eligible for copyright in the United States, but I thought I'd check here first.

I can upload the files if you'd like to check them out.

Mere transposition or changing of clefs does not qualify. It's something than notation programs do automatically, which is a pretty good indicator that there is no original creative input.
