The Nutcracker Suite

• Mar 31, 2019 - 08:46

Hi, I surfed the Internet a few days ago, and I found an arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite by Nicolas Economou. I really want to upload it here, but the arranger passed away at 1993. Can I still upload it?


You sure can. Whether you're allowed to legally is a different question, depends on whether the arranger holds any copyright, which is likely the case. Ask a lawyer.

So ask the folks at Alfred Publishing. I'm about 99.9% sure their answer will be that they own the copyright and that they don't allow you to publish.

And indeed, see their copyright message on the sheets:

© 1988 CPP/BELWIN, Inc.
All Rights Assigned to and Controlled by ALFRED PUBLISHING CO., INC.

And later

All Rights Administered by WARNER BROS. PUBLICCATIONS U.S. INC.

Pretty clear statements, no lawyer needed...

Unless you want to challange their claim.
