Many thanks.

That's the question... I couldn't find out. Seems to have been most active between 1920s...1930s.

Phillip, as already written Valse caprice No.1 by de Leone was not published in the etude magazine, but here's another nice waltz :

Francesco Bartolomeo de Leone (1887 - 1948)

Thanks for the Leone waltz - I had not got as far as 1944 in my perusal of the Etude! I still hope to see the VC No.1 from some other source - it would certainly be out of copyright here in the EU.

Hi:

I am interested in knowing the list of compositions by Carroll Gibbons.
Can someone provide me?
I think his compositions are already in the public domain.
Thank you very much.

He died in 1954 so I think we're just about safe. Although born in USA, he worked for most of his life in England.

From Grove:

Sylvia (comedy with music, 3, J. Dryenforth after St.J. Ervine: Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary), Vaudeville, 14 Dec 1927
Open Your Eyes (musical comedy, Dryenforth and C. Knox; F. Jackson), Edinburgh, Empire, 26 Aug 1929 [addl. music by V. Duke]
Gaeities (Furber), 29 March 1945
Big Boy (musical comedy, 2, F. Emney and D. Furber; Emney, Furber and M. Kester), Saville, 12 Sept 1945
Interpolated songs: 2 songs (Dreyenforth) in P. Braham: Up with the Lark, 1927

Many songs, incl. I’m so jealous (1927); Misunderstood (1927); Possibly (1927); Garden in the Rain (1928); I’ll be getting along (1929); Peace of Mind (1929); On the Air (J. Campbell and R. Connelly), (1932); On the Other Side of Lovers’ Lane (1932); I think of you (D. Furber), (1945); It was swell while it lasted (Furber), (1945)

Regards
Fred

Hi all,

A friend asked me for Samuel Barber's FULL SCORE of his piano Concerto.
Is that still under copyright?
I'm asking this because I saw some of his works here at PP.

Many thanks in advance.

Samuel Barber died in 1981, so I would suggest posting major scores like this is not possible.

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well!

I would like to call your attention to the American composer Fidelis Zitterbart Jr. (1845 - 1915) and his colossal musical output. In his over 1,400 compositions Zitterbart manages to cover approximately the whole variety of musical genres; from little violin duos to whole operas. For example wrote Zitterbart about 100 string quartets, 50 violin duos, violin and viola sonatas, nearly 100 compositions for piano solo (Polkas, Waltzes, Fantasies, Etudes, Sonatas) and an endless amount of suites for different instruments like flute, viola, piano, violin, cello etc. It is almost frightening to think of a man writing all these works by hand (and very neat! He even uses some sort of washi tape or its historical equivalent).

I would also like to share with you the following website where most of Zitterbart's works are available online. Unfortunately the display engine of the website is quite weak in my opinion.

Here is the link:
https://digital.library.pitt.edu/collec ... anuscripts

In the end I tried to obtain the scores in PDF format for simpler usage but this turned out to be very tricky. I use my iPad to do screenshots of the concerning pages of a composition to convert them later in Genius Scan into PDF, but unfortunately I can only select a few pages from the display engine (only possible on iOS as far as I know) to save them as an image for previously said usage before my web browser crashes... Do you have any advice? I would like to share these PDFs here on PP.

Many thanks in advance!
