[FEAUG] "Disable BBCode" and other forum options

Each time I post a new topic the Options boxes are reset with 'Disable BBCode' checked, and the other boxes unchecked. In my browser (Firefox) I have accepted cookies, and other sites remember my settings. Why does IMSLPForums.org always forgets my settings when I change them and quit my browser?

Re: Dussek, Musica Antica Bohemica

Coulonnus is quite correct that the appelation "urtext' is no guarantee that fingerings, etc. have not been added - Henle being the most obvious example. We really don't know unless the preface or editor's notes to the MAB volume actually mentions what was added. The editor's notes of vol. 3 a...

Re: Dussek, Musica Antica Bohemica

Are you sure the fingerings and ossias were not put there by Dussek? The MAB series was all very much in the urtext mode, so it strikes me as unlikely they would have arbitrarily added ossias and fingerings unless they came from Dussek (as in a personal copy of a published score) or a student. The ...

Dussek, Musica Antica Bohemica

I would be ready to scan and upload the Sonatas No.17 and No.19 that are missing at present in the Dussek category, because I have the Vol. 59 of Musica Antiqua Bohemica, 1962. But the Public_domain article of IMSLP states that fingerings are significant editorial contributions, and there are finger...

Presence in Pazdirek's catalog

I couldn't find the date of death of a composer, but I found this composer and his work
in Pazdirek's catalog (1904). Accordingly the work is PD in USA. Can I upload it here?

Re: book about articulation at baroque keybord instruments

"Vivaletour"]try JJ Quantz' book "On Playing the flute" it says a whole lot about articulation in general. I had a look, but Quantz's distribution of 'ti's and 'ri's seems to be the opposite of the usual practice. He claims 'ri's should be on the strong beat. For specifics about...

book about articulation at baroque keybord instruments

Does anybody know a book - downloadable or not - with a good treatment of articulate playing of harpsichord or baroque organ? CPE Bach is laconic about this IMO.

Re: [FEAT] This forum: Sort by date, most recent post at top

Well this almost works at the bottom level, except that the topics with the '!' icon in a light bulb come before the topics with the text-in-circle icon. What do these icons mean? At the top level, the forum lists ignores the date of the last post, e.g. Scanning and PDF creation is always the fifth ...

Thanks. This -lat option will be useful for those images that have a rather dark background near the left or right margin.

Re: Improving low resolution images downloaded from some librari

There are also the scores on Google Books, where they've done a very bizarre thing. Isolated systems or pages have been scanned at 150 dpi grayscale, while most of the scan is at 600 dpi monochrome. Look at vocal score for Saint Saens' opera ''Henry VIII'' to see what I'm talking about. Trying to p...
