Librettist - Spelling error in name

I've committed one of the unpardonable sins - when creating a new person category for F. A. F. Bertrand, I typed the name in wrong so his name has come out as "Friederich" instead of "Friedrich". If one of the admins could rectify this unfortunate error I'll get on with my curren...

Duplicate Upload

I have just imported 3 Intermezzi Op.16 by Sinding from Sibley (Sibley No. 15564) and it has come through twice. (The first time I attempted this, it gave me an error message, so I tried to send it again but didn't realize it had already gone through. Can one of the mods please delete one of the cop...

Re: Appeal for Help with Sibley Project

I've just had a quick look at the "Unknown Dates" list for the 8000 - 11999 page. Quite a few of them do already have pages here with biography details, so I have started adding some dates. I'm off to work so I don't have time to do the full list, but will try to work on it later.

Re: Top Ten Emoting Pianist Moments

There seems to be something about Chopin's music in particular, which lends itself to these kinds of 'over-the-top' performances...

particularly:

Chopin + Eastern European (i.e. Polish, Russian, Ukrainian etc) pianist = 100% emo

Re: Help with translating the plot summary of a Schubert Ope

I'm having a lot of fun reading these. I love automatic online translators. :lol:

Someone should create a website that just has auto-translations of opera synopses and libretti. Can you imagine "The Magic Flute"? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Best complete Beethoven sonata cycle

I vote for Alfred Brendel. I've heard lots of different interpreters of Beethoven piano sonatas, and his is the set I keep coming back to.

Re: Sibley Project List of remaining links

I just found another one...Amilcare Zanella, String Quartet No.1. The wiki syntax was correct ... {{Sibleyscan|1802/7535}}...but it was still on the Sibley link list.

Looks like they have a way of sneaking through.

Re: Sibley Project List of remaining links

I'm just picking my way through the Sibley Link List now, trying to find things I can upload... I'm finding quite a few files that I (or others) uploaded way back in the day when there was no Sibley uploader or official project as such - I would save the files to my computer and then use the "u...

Duplicate submission from Sibley

Oops... accidentally pressed the key twice when importing from Sibley, so we now have 2 copies of the same file: namely, the "Märchen von der schönen Melusine, Op.32" overture in arrangement for piano solo. Could I humbly request that the mods/ admins delete one copy?

Re: Main Page graphic re-design

The new Main Page design is beautiful, but it doesn't match my mug any more!

Our esteemed Mug Designer will have to create a new range of merchandise.

Help - trying to add pictures, inadvertently blanked page

Here I am trying to find pictures of some of the less well known composers...and while trying to add a picture of Johannes Evangelista Habert, I must have pressed the wrong button(s) and managed to blank the page. Not sure how to undo it. Could one of the Mods help?
