I'd doing a documentary for school, and we're not allowed to use copyright music. I was going to use Sebastien Bach's Cello Suite N.1 Prelude. However it was recorded by Rostropovich. I can't seem to find if it is copyrighted or not via Google. Does anyone know anything about that?

Ask the teacher.

Read this

And more specifically this

You're in the clear buddy. Bach has been in the public domain for at least a couple hundo years now.


The problem isn't Bach's music, it's that is was recorded by a third party, and I wasn't sure if his version would be in public domain or not

it was written by bach, therefore i think anyone that records it is public domain. im not sure what years Bach was around but I'm almost positive there was no form of recording music then, therefore there is no 'recorded' Bach version, just what he wrote.

so...i am literally sitting in my music business class right now...our teacher used an example almost identical to your situation.
here is the scoop:
it isn't copyrighted, because the composition is in the public domain; however, technically you are supposed to seek permission from the cover artist's record label.
but no, it isnt copyrighted

You could get around this by going to your school's music department and asking someone to play it for you.
