Bolero - pubic domain?

Postby hup_d_dup » Sat Dec 01, 2018 10:13 am

A claim has been made in France to take Boléro back into copyright, a move which would require orchestras to pay each time they played it.

Although Ravel’s copyright has expired, heirs to the stage designer Alexandre Benois are applying for him to be recognised as co-author. Benoit died in 1960. The copyright would then extend to 2031.

Bolero was first performed in 1916.

Sounds like a stretch to me, but copyright has been extended so many times in the last 40 years, who knows?

IMSLP lists publication date as 1928--thus, it is probably not public domain in the US, but is in Canada. France? who knows?

an interesting question, but - having played it from time-to-time - very little "tuba" content in this post. :D

bloke "Tacet (seemingly, forever) until it sounds like you are supposed to come in, tacet some more, and then - finally - come in...but a great excuse to buy a Jinbao 'French' tuba/baritone-thing, because the fingerings will be easy."

Trivia note: Learned from a crossword puzzle that the original name for Ravel's piece was "Fandango".

And here is a clip which fits that name: https://youtu.be/3-4J5j74VPw
