Fair use rationale[edit]

Non-free media information and use rationale for Polytonality

Fanfare from Igor Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka. Image made with Sibelius and the GIMP.


Self-created image of copyrighted sheet music.



Portion used

Small portion of the entire sheet music used.

Low resolution?

It is a low resolution copy that was made and cannot compete with any copyright.

Purpose of use

Article Polytonality. It illustrates educational articles and serves as the primary means of visual identification of the subject. The given section illustrates one of the first historically significant uses of polytonality.


Earlier free examples of polytonality (e.g. in Mozart) were used for comic effect and hence do not illustrate its use as a serious musical device. Later free examples (e.g. an excerpt put together solely for use on this page) would not illustrate the historical use of polytonality and so do not qualify as an equivalent "alternative".

Other information

The use of the sheet music will not affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to distribute the original. In particular, copies could not be used to make illegal copies.
