Writing in the current Delius Society Journal, (No.149), Tony Summers provides a number of helpful comments including a pointer that 'before accessing/downloading scores in IMSLP you have to agree to a disclaimer that the work in question is not in copyright in your country'. Further information on copyright is provided elsewhere on our website.
If you look at our Events page you will see that we are listing concerts and events so please send us details of any of your concert programmes which include music by Delius so that we can promote them for you. We are also promoting concerts on Bachtrack, Facebook, and in the Society’s Journals and Newsletters.
We will also help with background information on Delius and his music for your programme notes and may even be able to provide you with a Speaker to introduce a special concert.
We have a substantial list of Delius-friendly artists to help you in your programming needs. Please contact Rosemary Radford for a copy: 2012@TheDeliusSociety.org.uk
