The Beethoven Piano Sonatas

10 discussions • 140 scores • 244 members

Get involved in submitting MuseScore versions of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas as a way to feature MuseScore in several media outlets, such as YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook and others.

A great way for teachers to help their students learn notation, and for others who are bored and have nothing else to do.

Instructions:

In the discussion area where the Sonatas are listed, simply choose a Sonata that has not already been "taken" and submit a post stating: "Sonata No. _____, Opus ____ has been taken."

Then work on notating your chosen sonata as a MuseScore file and upload it to this group when completed. Each movement should have a separate file.

Others can help (if they don't want to notate) by working on playback or video scores for these pieces once they are uploaded.

By joining, you agree that the piece you notate can be uploaded by others with whatever corrections or additions are necessary for playback and video score purposes. So the same score may be uploaded by several people who are working on the final product.

Discussions may center around questions and answers regarding notation, playback and where/how to post these works for easy access on other sites. This is a group effort, but those who notate may place their name on the work, or remain anonymous.

All works must include the opus number and the composer as follows:

Sonate (Beethoven's sonatas use the German spelling)
No. ______, Opus _______ (or Nr. __________, Opus __________)
Ludwig van Beethoven
(1770-1827)

Be careful regarding copyright issues and use scores that are public domain. Even though the music itself is public domain, certain printed/published scores are not. Generally, fingering and some dynamic markings may be copyrighted, as well as pedal markings and other articulations. If you're not certain about this, then simply set the marking as invisible, or use an alternate marking (hairpins as opposed to text, for example for crescendos and diminuendos/decrescendos).

PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD ANYTHING OTHER THAN BEETHOVEN PIANO SONATAS TO THIS GROUP. ANY OTHER WORKS WILL BE REMOVED WITHOUT NOTICE.

I've already submitted a sample Beethoven Sonata for you to view to get an idea of what we want. It isn't complete.

Hey musiclovers, this group is dedicated to classical sheet music for piano only, that has been transfered to musescore.
It's purpuse is to build up a collection of scores, that have been wether written directly for piano or have been transcribed by (in-)famous musicians.
I love playing the piano and to have the scores in musescore makes it easier to practice and have them printed in a beautyful way.

Public Domain Popular Song Sheet Music (1900-1950)

2 discussions • 1 score • 7 members

TO ADD A SCORE TO THIS GROUP: please leave a hyperlink to your score in a comment in the discussion thread "Popular song standards currently in the public domain"

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS GROUP:

The group of songs known as the 'Great American Songbook' were popular songs written mainly from about 1910 to 1960, with the period of 1924 to 1950 being particularly fruitful for the creation of pop and jazz standards. Sheet music was still a huge industry during the first half of the 20th century, and these songs reached music fans via both sheet music and recordings.

This MuseScore group is intended to serve as a home for public domain piano sheet music documenting Great American Songbook standards as well as novelty songs and other songs from the era that have been less frequently revived.

Background information and current status of copyright:

As of 2019, only a 3-4 dozen of the songs played consistently by jazz and traditional pop artists are in the public domain, but from 2020 forward, each year will see a treasure trove of pop and jazz standards pass out of copyright. If you have transcribed or would like to transcribe public domain sheet
music of popular song standards, this is the group for you. For most works created prior to 1978, copyright expires after 95 years. This means that in 2019, works first published during or before 1923 are in the public domain.

Irving Berlin, who is often considered the first of the great 'Songbook' writers, got a jump on his peers, publishing many songs (and a few big hits) from 1907 to 1919, a period when Jerome Kern was also writing a few early pop song standards. But the 'Great American Songbook' composers really started to shift into high gear around 1924, the year George Gershwin hit his stride with "Lady Be Good" (the show, from which comes the standard).

After this came the torrent of song classics from Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Harry Warren, Jimmy McHugh, Duke Ellington, Burton Lane, Jimmy Van Heusen, and dozens of other composers and lyricists, some of whom had long careers, and others of whom we know only for one or two songs. While Vaudeville and the more upscale Broadway theater market created the initial demand for these songs, the advent of sound films in the late 1920s meant many more high-quality songs were needed every year. Simultaneously, the rise of the touring swing bands looking for radio hits created even more demand for songs, and thus the period of 1924 to 1950 became a golden age for composers with a knack for memorable melodies. Therefore, the years 2020 to 2050 will see the public domain get much much richer on the popular song front.

SOURCES OF FREE PUBLIC DOMAIN SHEET MUSIC:

Many academic libraries have shared free scans of public domain popular song sheet music, and these collections will grow much richer over the next 20-30 years as songs from this golden era become available. The following links are just a few of the collections available online:

Johns Hopkins Libaries' Lester S. Levy Sheet Music Collection:
http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/collection-search

Maine Digital Commons Vocal Popular Sheet Music Collection:
https://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/mmb-vp/

Sheet Music Consortium project via UCLA:
http://digital2.library.ucla.edu/sheetmusic/

Stanford University list of digital sheet music resources and links:

Note that newer sheet music arrangements of public domain songs may still be under copyright. The purpose of this group is to transcribe the original commercial piano sheet music publications that are now in the public domain.
