A 25 minute (or even less) large orchestra piece worth from 4.000 to 7.000
US$ where I live. No less. And they pay the copyist also (another 2.000 to
4.000). Then there is the premium payment from SGAE, something like another
1.000$ or so.
The problem is that there are only two persons who get orchestral

If there is any electric instrument the composer is who pays ;)

Dennis, pack your things and take a plane! we need WWW experts in Tenerife!
