Poulenc: Gloria Orchestra parts.
Date: February 15, 2013
From Deirdre Serio
I am interested in borrowing/renting orchestral parts for the Poulenc Gloria. A publisher is asking so much more that what was budgeted for music for this program.
Reply from Clinton F. Nieweg,
The work is under copyright and the ONLY legal parts are available on rental from Salabert/Boosey NY.
Boosey & Hawkes www.boosey.com/usrental
Boosey will only accept quotes and rental orders via their online quote and rental order forms. Their standard rental period is ten (10) weeks. This can be extended to twelve (12) weeks at no extra charge if necessary.
Rental Order/Quote Request form can be accessed at: http://www.boosey.com/pages/licensing/defaultUS.asp
Using any other material would allow Boosey to sue your organization.
Always ask a publisher for a Price Quote before programming any work that is under copyright and on rental. An organization cannot just set a budget on their own without knowing the rental costs.
The Gloria orchestra parts have many mistakes. Contact Lee Barrow for his errata lists. He has been trying to have Salabert publish a corrected set since 1987 but to date the publisher has not done so.
