Re: Upcoming changes

Announcement from the Board of Managers of iMSLP / Project Petrucci Carl Simpson VP/Treasurer, Project Petrucci I'm sorry, I don't get it. You're giving thousands of reasons why IMSLP cannot be, or cannot be changed into a non-profit entity. Wikipedia/Wikimedia does it, why couldn't IMSLP do it? 4....

Re: Vivaldi RV 85

Hi, I was first a little disappointed not to find Vivaldi's Trio in G minor RV 85 for violin, lute and continuo in your list of scores. But then, looking at your score of RV 82 (another Trio for the same lineup), I realized that there it was, but coming unanounced and uncredited AFTER RV 82 on the s...

Re: Upcoming changes

"Rob Peters Mon Feb 08, 2016 8:18 pm @discophage, I think I clarified things in my reply to Gschladt. Also what Joëlle Morton wrote: the work of typesetters at IMSLP is shamefully underappreciated. A lot of skills and research goes into producing a Urtext edition. The work of a well-payed libra...

Re: Upcoming changes

Rob Peters, I am sending this to a next post so as not to encumber the previous one. When I read the first sentence of your response to my post of January 2 - "That made me chuckle" - I thought you were making fun of my contention that those institutions who spend efforts and money unearth...

Re: Upcoming changes

Rob Peters: "I really think you're underestimating the work done by IMSLP volunteers - and overestimating the work of (well-payed and often government-funded) library scanners." I don't see where Gschladt has been underestimating the work done by IMSLP volunteers. On the contrary, he is in...

Re: Upcoming changes

IMSLP says " Public domain music can always be freely copied without royalties". No, it is not as simple as that. Beyond copyright protection, all developped countries tend to protect the specific work put into making even a public domain score public. The jurisprudence on this is fluctuat...

Re: Upcoming changes

In reply to Vinteuil, sorry, but I have to side with KGil on this. The problem is not, in itself, the 15-second wait or the blocking of newly uploaded scores, the problem is not with the 22-bucks yearly subscription or even having to pay something to access this cornucopia of scores. The problemS of...

Re: Upcoming changes

Unfortunately, IMSLP is no longer at a point where people are willing to do such tasks just because it is new and interesting - witness how we technically have two dozen copyright reviewers but only one is currently active (do you want to help out by reviewing several dozen files a day? serious que...

Re: Upcoming changes

As a music lover, not a performer, I've been a big user of IMSLP. It's not so much for the standard repertoire that I use the website - I have in fact a vast collection of "brick-and-mortar" scores which extends all the way to Ligeti, Xenakis, Henze or Maxwell Davies - but for the rare stu...
