Ligeti : Atmosphères

• Aug 20, 2015 - 05:36

Hi, gang!!!

I wonder if somebody knows where can I get the full orchestra score of the Giörgy Ligeti's Atmosphères.

It isn't on and I've been looking for this in Internet and I can't get some MIDI or PDF file of the piece, and I didn't had seen a place where to buy it. I just get the audio (MP3) file, but the piece is too much complicated as to try to write it "on-the-fly".

I think it is a very good piece to deal all the MuseScore power (to get a very nice score and a very good playback). But... I need the score to write the music!!!

Of course, if someone else already did the job... Please, let me know!!!

Greetings & Blessings!!!!!!!



I googled "ligeti atmospheres" (without the quotation marks), and I found a number of retail sources for this score (including Sheet Music Plus).

You're unlikely to find a legal copy of it in any other format because of copyright restrictions.

One can easily learn about copyright laws that are applicable in the nation of one's residence as well as elsewhere. Whatever one thinks of them, they're an important part of the world in which we live - and the work in question is, without question, under copyright in the U.S., Canada, the EU, and some of the rest of the world as well. Here's one handy resource:

Ligeti was born in 1923, composed 'Atmospheres' in 1961, and died in 2006.

Posting a link to a published work that is not in the public domain is equivalent to someone scanning, for example, Marc Sabatella's 'Mastering MuseScore' and offering it as a free download. It's unethical.

I see your point.Let's say that I didn't perform any sort of "magic" or even "hacking", I just did a quick google search with "Ligeti Atmospheres" as a key, then had a look in the "images" section. That's all. The link was there for anyone to see (and still it is, I suppose).
Anyway, I just looked for a way to remove the link from here, but I couldn't find any. This makes me feel a bit confused -- I'm rather sure that there was an "edit" button somewhere in the forum pages... where has it gone?
