Notes on my 6-piece arrangements of Sullivan's works

These arrangements are based on the following principles:

The arrangements are based on Sullivan's original orchestration, as presented in the Kalmus editions of full scores and sets of parts.

To allow the conductor to play the synthesizer, its part is formatted into the full (conductor's) score. If your production will be using a dedicated synth player, simply print two copies of this score. To reduce page-turns, the full score does not contain the piano part.

Some pieces originally scored by Sullivan for strings alone were rescored for a fuller sound. All such cases are clearly marked.

Compared with the same instruments' parts in Sullivan's orchestration, these parts are somewhat more technically challenging. They call for more playing, more jumping between high and low registers, and more exposed playing.

These arrangements are copyrighted and are subject to performance royalty. Each production must seek its own permission to perform these arrangements, and must make its own royalty payment; mere possession of the score and parts does not constitute permission to perform the arrangements. Please note that performance rights are separate from recording rights and broadcast rights, and that permission to perform these arrangements does not constitute permission to record or to broadcast them.

In the spirit of the Fair Use Doctrine, permission is hereby granted to make additional copies of the score and parts as a particular royalty-paying production requires them.
