No chance at all. None of his compositions are PD anywhere. Unless ofcourseyou cotact him and he agrees to release some one CC, you have no chance.

John Ogdon's papers

Postby mikebee » Mon Aug 04, 2008 1:14 pm

The papers came up for sale at Christie's in the 1990s, but remained unsold. His widow then passed them to the National Archives, and they are lodged with the Royal Northern College of Music, where they are available to students undertaking research.

The archive has been catalogued, and a detailed catalogue can be examined on the National Archive web-site.

From time to time published and manuscript items do come up for sale on Amazon - I think a dozen or so are listed at the moment.
