Re: Multiple composer pictures

I am happy to admit my first response to the question was somewhat casual, as I really don’t see the point for putting multiple pictures on a composer’s category page. The œuvres of the composers who are likely to have multiple pictures tend to be the ones with multiple hundreds of compositions, mak...

Re: John Bishop

Yes; we use a different category page for the editor, and don't use the "LinkEd" template for this guy on the work page for Czerny's Op.300. Instead, assuming the existence of a different category such as: Category:Bishop, John (1817-1890) Then replace {{LinkEd|John|Bishop}} on the Czerny ...

Re: MusicXML files should be available along with the scores

Thanks Michael, for your update on developments in the MusicXML world. We’ve discussed this around and around, and the usual issues that arise are as follows, and ancora, these result in some questions which I hope MusixChan would be prepared to answer: 1. Licensing. Unlike scans of old publications...

Re: Multiple composer pictures

I’ll ask: why? To make some already unwieldy composer pages even bulkier and slower to load? Also, how many is “multiple”? Five, ten, a hundred? Cheers, Philip PS To be honest, I think this might best be handled by linking a separate page where such “portrait galleries” can be assembled without impe...

Re: Arrangement vs. Alternate version

Or, just to be different, as piano 4 hands usually allows harmonies and textures (both homophonic and contrapuntal) to be filled in to a greater extent, I’d be inclined to think the composer’s 4-hands arrangement should perhaps have precedence over piano 2-hands… There’s also the inter-related issue...

Re: IMSLP to merge with WIMA

It’s still coming. As far as I know there isn’t the ability to load MP3s and/or MIDI files from WIMA using the special upload page yet.

Re: volumes in 1 pdf

The Schütz has already been divided up into pieces by the original scanner ( not the IMSLP contributor who is uploading them) and in some cases, recombining them into PDFs would have gaping omissions, or require merging two separate page scans together. It would, however, be a lot more convenient to...

Re: Bruckner 4th

Was there actually an answer in there, Eric? :þ (gentle teasing) Mahler of course made the first piano duet arrangement of Bruckner 3 with Rudolf Krzyzanowski, in 1878; Bruckner actually approved it personally. According to Wikipedia (take with grain of salt) the main differences in Mahler’s version...

Re: Couperin, Les baricades mistérieuses

Generally yes, unless the individual members of the collection are so widely arranged as pieces in their own right as to require separate pages (e.g.the separate pages for the items in Vivaldi’s opus numbers). I doubt separate pages would be needful for the Couperin but I might be wrong about the nu...

Re: When is the publisher who has the copyright

We don’t do any region-specific blocking of contributions: if a work on IMSLP is blocked from downloading, it’s blocked everywhere . If you’re downloading a score from IMSLP·EU — or particularly, if you’re downloading from IMSLP·US — then you should be aware of the appropriate copyright laws of your...

Re: Notes For the cadenzas of Mozart K.414

Hi Musicdiscussion, take a look over at the Neue Mozart-Ausgabe website: http://dme.mozarteum.at/DME/nma/start.php?l=2 Under Series V, Piano concertos volume 3, you’ll find 1st movement: pages 32 and 33 (as numbered on the page of the score) have 2 cadenzas, one rather short, one longer; 2nd movemen...

Re: Rzewski, Antigone Legend, text by Brecht

I assume it will incur a block until 2027, but it can remain on IMSLP thanks to the Canadian status.

The US status is presumably 95 years from the publication date of the original work Rzewski got his text from — not from the date of his composition.

Cheers P.

Re: Update for Dvorak Op 22, violin 1

The main issue is that scores can't be over-written on the Wiki except by their originator (or an admin), so if the replacement file is of sufficient quality to replace the scan, then you would have to forward the PDF to an admin.

Re: Don't know how to title this work

Here, the Library of Congress is going for a short, almost invisible title. The fuller title of this work is usually given as the “Short Service in the Dorian Mode”, just to be confusing, but I’d very much prefer the title to be as it’s known to the sort of people who perform it (it is actually a co...
