For some reason, parentheses break the hyperlink. The only way I know how to fix it is to replace opening parentheses with "%28" and closing parenthesis with "%29" (the corresponding ASCII hex codes for those symbols). For example, http://imslp.org/wiki/%C3%80_Argenteau%2C_Op.40_...

I voted for Sen. Obama, and have been elated at our victory. Some students here at Eastman were also elated, and decided to have a makeshift parade at 1:00 AM until the police decided to arrest them and confiscate their instruments. So much for the 1st amendment. http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...

The best open-source (free) audio compression format is Ogg Vorbis. It gives compression rates with quality comparable to MP3s. The only downside to Ogg Vorbis is that it may not be supported by all programs. You can find more information at the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorbis

A. Scriabin arrangements of Symphonies for Piano Duet

Hi guys, I'm wondering about a little gem I just found in the library. It's a 1972 Muzgiz edition of Scriabin's first three symphonies transcribed for piano duet. The first symphony was transcribed by Alexandre Winkler (1865-1935), the second by Vasily Kalafati (1869-1942) and the third symphony (Di...

My ranking of the composers: To me, Beethoven has that spiritual quality which makes him (for me) the greatest composer. His works are transcendental -- they point to something not of this world. Sorry to be so abstract, but that is how I find it. Bach is the master of balancing the superficially &q...

I suppose you are right... but I just was so numb after the site went down I found it hard to formulate my thoughts. I still haven't recovered. But what is there to say that hasn't already been said? It's coming back, so I just sit and wait. And practice, occasionally :roll:

IMSLP got me out of so many tight situations, when I needed a score, and the library was closed... The other day I had the very dubious honor of playing the harp part to the Nutcracker on a synthesizer (welcome to Arkansas) and lo and behold, the big cadenza in the Waltz of the Flowers was complete ...

My university subscribes to the Naxos Music Library , a wonderful resource for recordings. Naxos has some tracks available that are re-releases of older recordings. However, some of these tracks are still under copyright in the US, but not in the EU (if my memory serves me correctly), so they show u...

I use Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians, a fantastic resource for lesser known composers and performers. Unfortunately unless the editor was also a composer or performer tey are not likely to be listed unless they did significant work.

Indeed, but both are non-circulating. The Library of Congress also has a copy. I would have to go and actually photocopy it on site, if they would even allow me. To my knowledge a reduction was never published. Given the rarity of the score it seems highly unlikely. Maybe if I get my hands on a scor...
