rags

Our category for rags specifies keyboard, but although it started out as a keyboard genre, it did eventually spread to other instruments. Do we really need to restrict it to keyboard? (Just tagged Bernardez' Ragtime as a rag, but then saw the "definition".) It seems to me the type of rhyth...

Re: Problem on Schubert's D.96

If I remember the story correctly, Schubert did this arrangement adding the cello part so that his father could play in the group. There is one extra movement that he composed himself, but the other movements are all straight arrangements.

Re: Are any piano scores listed by difficulty?

I have looked at the Carnegie lists Heather has given the link to, and they are roughly equivalent to ABRSM, Trinity, and Unisa. I would suggest manual lists rather than having to maintain the information on individual work pages, which will be too much work and inevitably will be only scantily main...

Monteverdi, Confitebor settings

Monteverdi did 7 settings of Confitebor tibi domine. IMSLP has 2 of these, or 3 depending on the listing We have two listed on one page, but the music download looks like it is only one, and Grove lists two different instrumentations for the SV numbers: http://imslp.org/wiki/Confitebor_tibi_domine,_...

Re: Brahms Symphony No.4, range of clarinets in C

Then I guess the question is why did Gal add the reinforcement? Was he known for adding things into his editions generally?

Re: Brahms Symphony No.4, range of clarinets in C

It's not really a discrepancy; when we do C transposition we use B-flat clarinet (usually), and this becomes a low F, which is within range. Brahms' clarinetists must have done the same, since as far as i know, they didn't make instruments with low Ebs then, though I could be wrong on that point. At...

Martinu Quartet

Since Martinu is now PD in Canada, any chance someone has the Quartet for clarinet, french horn, cello, and side drum? Thanks.

Re: Furie di donna irata

If you look on Piccini's page, you will see the opera title, and here's the page: http://imslp.org/wiki/La_buona_figliuola_(Piccinni,_Niccol%C3%B2) Unfortunately, we do not have that aria as a separate piece, you will have to look through the scores to find it. But at least we have the opera.

Re: Are any piano scores listed by difficulty?

For some reason, people have been using the scan rating system to rate typesets, even though they aren't scans, and clarity should not be an issue. One piece of music, which people have requested to remove because of the number of mistakes, missing bars, and bad typesetting errors, has average ratin...

Re: No deletion of files released under CC licence?

To me, although I am one of the admins that spend time working on these pages, the bigger issue is -- how can you put people in a position where they do something legally, only to have it declared illegal later? It might be very difficult, indeed, to prove that something was once under CC but is no ...

Prokofiev, Peter and the Wolf

http://imslpforums.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7221 Others have complained about the quality of the Matthew Curtis/Philipp Maier typeset of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, so it isn't just the clarinet part. The typesetting guidelines say "a typeset with major flaws that could cause potential ...

Re: Prokofiev, Peter and the Wolf parts

Since this has gone off topic from a score request to a quality issue, I am going to request, in a different forum, that we consider removing the version with so many mistakes. We have the originals now, so I don't see any reason why we have to keep the bad set. I'm not sure it will actually be remo...

Re: Method that's teaching wrong material

There are many history books that would have what is considered now to be "wrong" information because newer information has corrected the mistakes. It will, indeed, be better to simply leave a comment on the work page.
