There was I believe another part to the question, and that related to
which version (copy) of the work could be used. Many CDs are specific
and clear in saying that the CD is not for public presentation.

In these cases, promoters "should" contact the publisher and get a
"released" version. It's like playing Stockhausen -- the materials
have to be acquired from him directly, and it's illegal to 'simply'
play a CD of one of his pieces in public. His rental rates are
'reasonable'.
