Small collection of Finnish works

Postby lekro » Sun Aug 21, 2016 2:02 am

I encountered the following web site with works of Finnish composers which seem to be PD:

But I would like to confirm that the editions available there are PD.

Otto Kotilainen (1868-1936)
- Sparven på julmorgonen (Varpunen jouluaamuna)

Erkki Melartin (1875-1937)
- Prinsessa Ruusunen, op.22, nro 30, Juhlamarssi, pianosovitus [Prinsessa Ruususen häämarssi]

Oskar Merikanto (1868-1924)
- Kesäilta, op.1 [Kesäillan valssi]
- Oi, muistatko vielä sen virren, op.52, nro 3 [Suomalaisia laulusävellyksiä 5]
- Onnelliset, op.15 [sopraano, altto, piano]
- Valse lente, op.33

Toivo Kuula (1883-1918)
- Häämarssi, op.3b, nro 2 [Bröllopsmarsch, Hochzeitsmarsch; Kaksi pianokappaletta, op.3]

There is also parts of a "Gullvivan songs for schoolchildren" collection, volume 3, which seems to contain music from Finnish and non-Finnish composers as well as folk song arrangements.

Glancing through some of them they appear to be engravings from the early 20th century. Given the dates of the composers they are probably all in the public domain in Canada, the EU, and the U.S. The one exception might be the song collection. It just depends on the dates of the composers and librettists. By the way, all of these pdf files originated from the digitized printed sheet music collection of the Sibelius Academy.
