Any sources for the 1885 Piano Sonata Op.14 by Laura Valborg Aulin? Fantastic piece. I can't find any references to a published edition. Thanks.

I, too, am looking for this wonderful piece of music! I have emailed both the pianist who recorded the video and the Swedish Musical Heritage site, and still awaiting replies. Have you had any luck?

Seeing as how I still haven't gotten any responses from the performer or from the Swedish Musical Heritage people, I decided to try transcribing it from the recording. Not ideal, but better than nothing!

Does anyone know the rules regarding that? It was written in 1885, so well outside of copyright laws, correct? So could I make that available to the public for free?

She died in 1928, so copyright would be well gone by now (70 years after death of composer in EU) - so you could make it open and free to the public.

Great news! I will definitely share it here when it's complete, and of course if there are corrections needed to be made I can easily take care of them. It's always tricky to transcribe from a recording since you rely upon the accuracy of the performer. This particular performer is excellent but there are some spots where I'm not sure what to do so I'll add placeholder stuff for now and hope that someone with fresh/better ears can help out. :)

I also contacted the the Swedish Musical Heritage people, and they were kind enough to send me a link to a digitised copy of the sonata in question. It's in manuscript, and I don't think it has ever been published other than this. A notated version would be welcome.

My thanks to the Swedish Musical Heritage staff - most helpful.

Oh wow! Well, I have the 4th movement already transcribed, but I was having trouble figuring out some of the notes. This is great! Thank you! I'll definitely put it in Finale and share it here when I'm done.

Looking forward to seeing typeset version of the Aulin Sonata, Morodiene.

Something a little different from me, and following hearing the recent recording of the piano concerto no. 1 by Dora Bright (1862-1951), a couple of works I had in my library.

The Jungle Book songs are in the Vocal thread.
