The Free Music Analysis Anthology:
WHAT IS THE FREE MUSIC ANALYSIS ANTHOLOGY? The Free Music Analysis Anthology is an anthology of 133 scores proven useful for analysis, along with translations and, in some cases, links to recordings. The scores are useful for any level from high school through graduate study. The focus is on piano literature and art song, although a number of choral and instrumental ensemble scores are also included.
IS THIS ANTHOLOGY REALLY LEGAL? Yes, in the United States, Canada, and the European Union, the source scores are public domain, and I have documented that in detail below. I also believe these are public domain worldwide, as documented below, but I cannot assume legal responsibility. By downloading the anthology, you are assuming all legal responsibility. Please follow the legal guidelines of your country. As a creator, I believe in respecting copyright law 100%, and to my knowledge, ALL source editions (other than those I engraved) are public domain.
For more details, see "0004: Anthology Sources" below.
