Re: Question regarding Frank Martin

In the past, various people on IMSLP have made it a project to mirror the embargoed items that are PD in the US, but I'm not sure how the process worked. It probably involved making the files available to the individual doing the mirroring, but I've forgotten the details. I'm not sure how far "...

Re: Why does IMSLP not use Fulda Symphonic Orchestra files?

I assume because no contributor here had seen them, or as of yet had not bothered to transfer them.

Re: Salieri's Falstaff

I can't find a reference, on WorldCat at least, to any printed edition of the full score. OTOS did publish a vocal score in 1969 , and there seem to have been several selections published in about 1799/1800, but otherwise you're probably just going to find manuscript facsimiles. The vocal score was ...

Re: ravel, daphnis and chloe suite 2 orchestral parts

Found it: http://imslp.org/index.php?title=File:PMLP80636-Ravel-DaphnisSte2.Clarinet.pdf&action=edit&redlink=1 Deleted last April as a copyright violation. It turned out, I gather, that instead of the 1913 Durand edition, it was actually a performing edition by Clinton F. Nieweg (b.1937) whi...

Re: Odd spacing in some computer-generated score files.

Well, I don't know about the latest versions, but every Finale release I've ever used has done that by default through its questionable auto-spacing. It is pretty easy to fix by using one of the Page Layout tools to force a certain number of measures on any given staff system, but perhaps some who a...

Re: Complete Beethoven Sonatas in one PDF

Not unless there was actually a printed collection (not series or edition, but monolithic collection) that put all 32 in one volume, and we have a page for that collection, I'd say.

Re: API account for developing an Android application.

According to IMSLP:API, only those with special accounts can see the documentation for the API - I'm sure OP is referring to the IMSLP-specific one written by Feldmahler, not the general MW one.

Re: [FEAT] New time period for living composers?

Maybe it would be simpler to circumvent the arguments on labeling of periods entirely by letting users directly select a custom date range through a special page. Hypothetically, this could then free up the 'stylistic' (read: time period) descriptors on work pages to actually describe the style of e...

Re: Deactivating IMSLP account

As far as I am aware, MediaWiki does not provide any features related to the deactivation of user accounts - though the term 'deactivation' is itself rather vague. To wit, would you like to ---cease editing the wiki and have your account rendered nonfunctional, but keep references to it in page hist...

Re: Problems with music manuscript paper.

What I would like to see (if it exists - which it doesn't, to my knowledge) is a computer that contains two separate drives inside, and every time you save or alter a document, it copies each change twice, separately, to each drive. It would do this invisibly in the background, so you wouldn't have...

Re: Beethoven's metronome markings

Is there any truth in the idea I read many years ago (in a now-forgotten source) that, for many years, Beethoven's metronome was faulty and ran too fast, and he didn't know it, so that most of his metronome markings can not be relied on? I thought his markings were usually said to be unexpectedly f...

Word documents cannot be uploaded - I'd suggest converting them to PDF instead, and if you really want the .doc available then you could zip it and upload along with the PDF.

WorldCat, the site I linked to in the sentence preceding the (offhand) abbreviation.
2.) Is there any online sources or online copies I could find?

I'm not having any luck finding a scan of the Novello edition, but you can buy a Kalmus reprint of the score from SMP.

Re: Scherzo Op. 20/3 Orchestrated by Mendelssohn

Looks like it was published by Novello in 1911 and is therefore PD worldwide. The score at least is held at the universities of Boston, Indiana, and Chicago as far as the US is concerned - see here. Parts are listed on WC as well, they were published along with the score.
