Re: Gustav Holst's Wind Band Transcriptions for his Planet S

Where did you get the idea he made any?

Certainly his daughter didn't mention it in the catalog of works she compiled.

Re: MIDI

There''s a huge number of programs that will allow you to edit MIDI files. Just load the file, mute the track with the solo instrument, and you're golden. You could probably even use the demo of Sonar.

Re: Prokofiev's Works

There is no way. IMSLP made the decision many years ago to not have IP sensor tech to allow or disallow downloads, as it is very unreliable. If a piece is not DLable by you, it's not DLable by anyone.

Re: Ravel, Sonata for violin and cello

The issue of if Ravel changed anything from the original Debussy memorial to the sonata is a mysterious one. There's no separate catalog number, so clearly Marcel Marnat didn't consider them different enough.

Re: Music related movies?

It has been years since I've seen it but the move Deception from 1946 (synopsis here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038461/ ) is about a love triangle involving a cellist (Paul Henreid), a pianist (Bette Davis), and a composer (Claude Rains) and is noteworthy for featuring Erich Wolfgang Korngold's ...

Re: Mozart Piano Concerto (24) Horns in Eb/Trumpet in C?

Not a horn or trumpet player so can't say with certainty, but I think that in modern orchestral works the convention still holds but for band stuff they now use key signatures like any other instrument. If I have this wrong then hopefully someone who knows better will correct me. I think I've seen ...

Re: Mozart Piano Concerto (24) Horns in Eb/Trumpet in C?

For Mozart of course it's not a relic -- the trumpet COULDN'T play outside the fundamentals. So being in C, it'll relate to C minor just fine (all C means is that it's notated at concert pitch, so a C will sound C....just fine when the only notes it can play are C and G outside of one E -- and since...

I tried to wright a post last night but the forum derped... But yeah, I agree with the above. I was saying perhaps death + 20 /or/ the death of the last surviving children or (current) spouse, whichever is first.

Re: Gershwin Piano Concerto in F Score(PDF)

I don't regard any of the responses here as "flaming." Does the OP? Maybe not flaming, ok. But is "Perhaps you might think about spending some money and buying it, rather than deceiving yourself that downloading it is morally defensible." really a necessary response? Especially ...

Re: Gershwin Piano Concerto in F Score(PDF)

I'm not talking about the law. I'm asking why such an attitude toward wanting a piece that old, especially when it's not that different in age from ones that ARE ok. The OP I'm sure had absolutely no idea about the status of the piece, and to flame in such a way is really unfair.

Re: Gershwin Piano Concerto in F Score(PDF)

I dunno, why it it so horrible to want to DL Gershwin's 1925 work for free but perfectly fine to DL a public domain everywhere work written and published in 1920?
