I have noticed that the page for Stravinsky's Firebird only has the viola part from the original 1910 version. This part shows Edwin F. Kalmus catalog number A3049. I have also noticed that the score for the 1910 version that is available (reprinted by Dover) lists the source as Muzyka, but the Kalmus reprint of the parts shows the source as Jurgenson. Also, the Kalmus catalog entry does not show a piano or celesta in the instrumentation, which there is. I was wondering if this was simply an error on Kalmus's part (probably not uncommon) or if their different listed source edition actually excluded the piano and celeste.
Either way, even though Kalmus's price for the set (and individual parts) is rather high, I was wondering if anybody knew of any library that actually had this set (or if anyone was insane enough to buy it!
) and scan and upload the remainder of the parts. Since the lone viola part made its way onto the site unblocked, I don't believe there is any issue with copyright (except that it's PD in the US only). However, the part is handwritten, and although it is done so neatly, it could easily contain a bunch of errors, and this could be a reason somebody refrained from scanning the parts. (Actually, I just looked through it and cross-checked some of it with the score, and it looks very accurate, complete with lined-up rehearsal marks!)
If uploading the original 1910 version is not possible, could somebody upload the parts to the 1919 suite (Kalmus cat. no. A2131, a much cheaper $235 compared to the original ballet's $825)? This is probably the most performed suite, and a lot of people would appreciate its adding.
