It was in one of my sight-reading books, Easy Classics to Moderns vol. 17, page 121. It's called Evening in the Meadow, by Vladimir Rebikoff. Any beginner looking for something good that's not too overplayed might want to check it out! It's gorgeous, in my opinion. The character of the piece is a lot like "Christmas Time is Here" by Vince Guaraldi, from the Peanuts specials.

Horace,

I've played that piece. Beautiful, isn't it? For some reason it has a Native American sound to me.
I really do like it.

pdolce cool


But, I played it perfectly at home!!

I think I've payed this piece, but the title was translated as "Evening in the Country". I agree it has a Native American sound, particulary the first theme (not so much the second dance-like theme).

I would also love to see a PDF of this piece, because as it turns out, my library of Denes Agay "Classics to Moderns" starts with "More Easy Classics to Moderns" and goes to the Intermediate. I just don't have that volume. My teacher of two years ago and I decided I should start with the next volume for sight-reading, about halfway through it where things get a bit harder.

But I don't think it would be a good idea to post it here. Maybe post a link to it on another site. Y'know, just being careful and all.

Mike - You might be thinking of a Bartok piece named Evening in the Country (or I could be mistaken) but I've played the Bartok piece.

I've been wanting to play around with notation software anyway, so I downloaded Finale's free Notepad and put the piece in there. I couldn't save it to a PDF but I got some JPGs that should be easily printable:

Page 1

Page 2

You might be better off right-clicking the links and choosing "save as" to get the jpgs on your local disk where you can view and print them from something other than your browser.

(This was composed around the 1910s I think, so it's certainly in the public domain.)

It's in vol. 17. The book costs 14 us bucks. If you really really want a PDF of the piece write me at raduf@writeme.com from a real e-mail address and I'll scan it and convert to PDF for you.

Actually, in this style , there are a lot of sweet little pieces by russian composers (Maykapar, Rakov, Shostakovitch - the Puppet Dances).

Thanks, Horace! I have printed them out and will give it a try when I feel confident enough to tackle those LH chords.

Looks like a pretty piece.

One caveat though, I don't know about this particular work, but most are copyrighted. You might want to be careful to check.. don't want to get Frank in hot water over us saving $14.

There are several used copies listed on half.com for under $10. Heck...a couple under $5. Tip of the day.

You're right, that's what I get for relying on memory. frown cursing The book I have it in has both Bartok and Rebikov.

I should have guessed I was confused, the Bartok piece isn't too terribly hard but not what I would consider easy...

Since it was published before 1923, chances are overwhelming it's in the public domain. Especially considering it was in the compilation book to begin with.

I'm not sure the date of composition of a musical work has much to do with the copyright on a particular publication of a score for that work.

Anybody who's interested can do a Google search on "1923 copyright" (without the quotes).

That's fine.. we just have a duty as guests to be careful about these things.

Just because early editions of a piece were published before 1923 and are in the public domain does not mean that more recent editions are. Many editions contain considerably more (or at least different) editorial content than other editions and therefore are not in the public domain. Compare an Alfred's Masterworks edition to an urtext edition. Furthermore, even urtext editions may contain the results of academic study clarifying the composer's intent and may be copyrighted.

Well the piece I've posted a link to is no edition at all, it is my own transciption into a free musical notation software package based on the public domain notes composed and published before 1923.

Hi,
It was nice to see at least some posters on this thread thinking about the publisher and potentially a composer getting paid for what they do. People scanning and posting pdf's of copywritten material is illegal, and pretty much as uncool as you can get if you really think about it. Sheetmusicplus.com is a place where you can get most piano music and Easy Classics to Moderns isn't exactly hard to find.
At some point, teachers and students should look at the composer's and publisher's points of view and at least realize that those of us who compose and publish music for everyone deserve to be paid for what we do-especially if all you are talking about is a fourteen dollar book.

The only piece I can find by Rebikoff in public domain is Chinese Doll. The version of Evening is listed in that book as coyright 1956.

I doubt Rebikoff still lives, or that his descendants are reaping the rewards of his work, but we still, I repeat, have to be careful what we post on here. It's not our bulletin board.

That particular publication of it is (c). The notes are in the public domain. Every Shakespeare book you buy at the store is copyrighted but you can still type the words out and distribute your own transcription freely.

Interesting quandary. For now, I think I'll have to keep an eye out for the vol. 17 of Agay on sale or at the "midnight madness" special at the music store. I have those other books of his (plus "The Joy of Playing for Pleasure" and "The Joy of French Piano Music" and a couple of others) and I like them pretty well.

It's a quandary as much as it's a quandary to avail onself of the sheet music available for free download at sheetmusicarchive.net, for instance. Which is to say, it's not a quandary.

There may be arguments from an abstract perspective about the distribution of copyrighted music in general, but when it comes to public domain music by long-dead composers, let's not pretend that the composers would want their music restricted in any way. Their legacy isn't royalties (which do not exist for public domain works; by buying a compilation of PD works you support the publisher of the compilation and nobody else), their legacy is the enjoyment of their music.
