“Donemus is courageous and committed in the way it actively promotes new music…. While some other countries have equivalent organizations, I am not aware of any that is so proactive. Donemus sets a standard that others should follow.”
(Stephen Baggaley, Brisbane)
Donemus sells PDFs without any protection of the files. But like all publishers Donemus is aware of the risk of copyright infringement. For this reason places a customer watermark on every page of the downloadable PDF.
Find the title you're looking for and copy and past the web address from the title bar. (like:https://webshop.donemus.nl/action/front/sheetmusic/9437)
Composer can link from their own websites to the separate titles in the webshop.
You can make as many prints as you like. There is no protection on the PDF. But to the agreement of the General Conditions, the PDF is officially still the property of Donemus Publishing. You're allowed to make prints only for yourself.
Technically, yes. However, for chamber pieces including a keyboard instrument (such as piano), it is mostly expected that the pianist is going to play from the score. Therefore, as a rule the “Parts” set does not include a separate piano part.
Donemus Publishing rents music for larger groups to get a return on investment for mostly expensive productions with many parts. This a world wide convention for all music publishers to rent music for orchestra.
Donemus does rent a couple of chamber music works as well, to have a better overview on the way the score/parts are used.
The calculation for performance licenses when an ensemble or orchestra rents Donemus music, is based on a) the number of performances b) the number of pages in PDF.
The formula for the calculation is:
You can keep the score and the set of parts for your library. PDFs can be stored at your hard disk for you own archive. It is never allowed to share any of the printed parts or the digital files with any other person, orchestra, ensemble or organisation.
If you like to perform the piece later on after the first concert(s), you don't need to buy the score again. You need to at least pay for another set of parts in PDF (even though you might not use them, but prefer to use your archived files or prints from before) and a new license for the upcoming performance(s).
