Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 Violin I part
From all the googling I have done, I take it most of Shostakovich is not public domain. I'm trying to find a copy of the 1st violin part and any leads would be greatly appreciated!
Kalmus doesn't have it, EMS doesn't have it, etc...
Curious. I thought Russia and the USSR were very slow to sign onto those treaties. Perhaps he used German or British publishers to get around that?
IMSLP practically has nothing :(
Have a look at the NY Phil archives. You cannot download or print, but you can watch it online. Many works are available with bowings etc. from different conductors.
Russian copyright protections extend 50 years after the death date of the author (Shostakovich, d. 1975). If it was first published in a different country the applicable copyright laws could be different.
Yes, as Dawson says, Russian works used to be public domain. Now you gotta pay...
It's in the NY Phil archives as suggested above.
When I played it it was a "manuscript" copy. You've got to be really careful to count the ledger lines under the highest notes.
Thank you everyone!
