Dear All,

I’m pleased to tell you that Kapustin’s publishers, A-RAM, have said that they will be releasing a significant number of hitherto unpublished or out-of-print piano works during the next 12-18 months.

They’re going to send me full details of these forthcoming publications by the end of this month; I’ll post it here as soon I get it.

I’m also pleased to tell you that they have updated their current catalogue of Kapustin’s compositions. You can find all the details here ... 7QodMsAJjw then click on one of the orange boxes

You can also find out more about Kapustin under “Featured sheet music” on the right side of each page.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Cheers, Tim

Following my recent email about A-RAM’s publishing programme (see above), there is some confusion about the involvement of Schott with Kapustin. I’d like to clarify the situation.

Schott signed a publishing agreement with Kapustin in 2014, even though he had made an agreement with A-RAM eleven years before that.

Many of Kapustin’s works are now published by Schott, of which many have previously been available for a number of years from A-RAM, as you might know.

Because of the above, we have repeatedly asked Schott to stop publishing Kapustin’s music. Schott has not complied with this request.

In addition to this, Schott has also:
1. Led its customers to believe that it has “taken over” the publication of Kapustin’s works
2. Claimed that its editions are the “authorized” versions, and that the A-RAM editions should no longer be purchased
3. Used textual matter lifted, copied, paraphrased and adapted from the A-RAM editions
4. Most damagingly, stated that A-RAM has not paid the composer any royalties. We would like to make particularly clear, and public, that it has actually paid Nikolai Kapustin tens of thousands of pounds in royalties.

I apologise if the above seems complicated but I have related all the facts, as given to me by the publishers. Thank you for your understanding.

I will be happy to answer any questions until whenever the matter should become sub judice.

Best wishes
