    by your webmaster

Dear Nikolai Kapustin admirer, Some   of   you   might   have   received   the   newsletter   of   Tim   Gill   of   Must   (music-trading.co.uk)   regarding Nikolai   Kapustin.   Details   newsletter:   Nikolai   Kapustin.   Tue,   31   Oct   2017   20:38:55.   On   request   I   can send you this newsletter. I   like   to   mention   that   I   am   very   disappointed   in   Tim   Gill   (Must)   and   Ashot   Akopian   (A-RAM).   Their newsletter lacks the respect maestro Kapustin deserves. They   are   convinced   of   their   rights   to   publish   Nikolai   Kapustin's   music.   The   contract   with   Prhythm (Affairs   Co.   LTD,   Japan)   was   stopped   in   May   2013   and   in   summer   2013   Must   and   A-RAM   were informed    about    this,    also    that    Nikolai    Kapustin    would    sign    an    exclusive    contract    with    a    new publisher;   a   publishing   agreement   between   Nikolai   Kapustin   and   Schott   Music   has   been   concluded in 2014 and it is the only valid one. Also,   the   recent   edition   of   Kapustin's   op.   49   for   four   hands   as   published   by   Tim   Gill   (Must)      is   actually a   Prhythm   edition   with   an   A-RAM   look-a-like   front   and   back   cover,   but   in   fact   it   is   not   published   by   A- RAM.   Neither   Prhythm,   nor   Affairs   Co.   LTD,   nor   Must   or   A-RAM   are   allowed   to   publish   this   Prhythm edition   in   any   way   under   the   copyright   of   Affairs   Co.   LTD   (Prhythm),   because   the   contract   was between   Affairs   and   Nikolai   Kapustin.   Prhythm   was   just   a   sub   publisher   who   used   the   rights   granted to them by Affairs. For this reason it makes it an illegal one. Wim de Haan, your webmaster Date: 14 November, 2017 .

You can read it here http://www.nikolai-kapustin.info/misc_notice.html This   letter,   and   the   signature   of   Kapustin,   are   both   forgeries.   We   are   now   consulting   our   lawyers with a view to taking this man to court. I   wish   all   of   you   a   very   happy   Christmas   and   a   peaceful   New   Year.   And   thank   you,   once   again,   for your support. Best wishes Tim Guess   your   webmaster   does   not   have   to   explain   that   the   letter   by   Nikolai   Kapustin   is   authentic,   and not   as   stated   by   Tim   Gill   a   forgery.   Enclosed   you   can   find   a   photo   of   maestro   and   his   wife   Alla showing the original letter. I   like   to   apologize   for   sharing   all   this   with   you,   but   it   feels   it   is   an   important   matter   and   you   should be informed and updated in the correct way.
Nikolai Kapustin and his wife Alla showing the original letter. On top NK’s full address is mentioned. Wim de Haan, your webmaster Date: 28 December, 2017
