Hi, the Sonata is working now. Enjoy! Hobbypianist 01:11, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

Re: Wranitzky String Quartets

Thank you for pointing out the discrepancies with the Wranitzky scans, when I get a moment I will look into it.

Sometimes I "borrow" scores directly from other PD music websites, so I rely on their description without always checking every single page. It's good to have feedback if something does go wrong.

Re: Reissiger

No, I don't have any more works by Reissiger in progress now. The other trios were transferred from the Sibley Music Library website. Please go ahead and scan the trio that you have.

My scanning activities at the moment are confined to the Schubert stage works (I think I will do "Claudine von Villa Bella" next). I am also working on the Chopin-Lieder, Op.17 (adding the original Polish text to an existing PD edition). Apart from that, I often visit the Sibley Music Library and the Danish Royal Library websites and if I see something interesting that we do not have here yet, I "borrow" it.

It is good to see the IMSLP library becoming more and more comprehensive. We are about to exceed 19,000 scores!

Aldona 06:54, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

The Sibley Music Library website (University of Rochester) has just listed the following piano trios by Reissiger:

No.4 (Op.56); No.5 (Op.75); No.6 (Op.77); No.7 (Op.85); No.8 (Op.97); No.9 (Op.103); No.10 (Op.115); No.11 (Op.125).

Normally, in this situation I would import these scores into IMSLP. But I am aware that you are scanning some trios by Reissiger, so I do not want to over-ride your hard work. Please let me know which ones you don't want me to import. (Or, if you have a different edition, it would still be useful to upload both.) Aldona 18:54, 12 August 2008 (EDT)

Sphor op 45 No.1

When I uploaded Op.45 No.1 I didn't check String quartet No.12. You are right,it's the same piece.I don't know why Peter wrote No.12 because on first page I can read only Op.45 No 1.We should ask him... By the way I think my file is better crooped and of higher quality.....but if you think Peter's one is better you are free to delete my page.

Thank you for your advice



Bärenreiter or not?

Dear Eric,

Did you write on my discussion page? The links leads to this page. I'm glad that you appreciate my typesets. Thanks! My notation software is Sibelius. Getting an acceptable layout is not so difficult, it needs only some care (the most important rule: NEVER use Times NR as a text font!). A professional music-engraver will have some objections to make to my typesets, above all the angles of the beams, which are often wrongly set by the software (e.g. the upbeat of the first movement of Telemann's Duet for Flute and Violin: the beam has to follow the melodic line and therefore has to go upwards and not downwards). Maybe you overestimate the quality of Bärenreiter prints. The volumes of the Complete Editions which appeared until 1985 or so (when Bärenreiter began to typeset with Score) are actually very beautiful. But often Bärenreiter's practical editions aren't engraved but hand-written with indian ink. The results are extremely ugly (cf. the Trio for 2 Flutes and Violoncello by Carl Philipp Stamitz in the IMSLP). You should compare my typeset of Telemann's Trio Sonata from »Essercizii musici« with the Bärenreiter print, I'm sure you would prefer my edition. So don't worry, I didn't steal the editions from Bärenreiter.

By the way, can you explain to me, how I can replace a file I uploaded with a corrected one? I found some mistakes. --Rarus 17:17, 3 November 2008 (EST)


Thanks for catching that! You're right - it should not get a separate work-page. I've already copied the entry onto the page for Op.32 and will delete the separate page shortly. Don't hesitate to contact me or leave a note somewhere if you find more of this type of thing. Carolus 01:42, 3 January 2009 (EST) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)


Thank you.I didn't know he wrote cadenza for Beethoven. When I have time I'll upload that work.(On the Molique page)



I appreciated your comment on my page. I responded there where you left the comment as navigating this site is something I am learning to do.

I have added 3 other works and will add more.

19th-century Australian music.

Hallo. Sorry I've taken time to reply - I only just noticed your message now - didn't think to look earlier, because I never thought anyone would write to me about anything, anyway. (I had to look round a bit to see what prompted your question, and found it in the Berwald discussion.)

Sorry, no, I don't have any significant amount of 19th-century Australian music - probably near enough to none at all. I think most of my collection is early to mid 20th-century, with some later 20th-century. I have rarely come across 19th-century Australian music over the years; and, while it may be historically interesting and important, a lot of it, to be honest, strikes me as not being all that interesting as music. I think it took a while for Australian composers to develop some sophistication, so that, until the 20th century, maybe Australia lagged behind most European countries by some decades.

As for quartets, I have none at all. I have focused on collecting mainly piano music, since I can play it myself. I've never really focused on collecting chamber music, since I don't have anyone to play it with.

I really don't know what libraries might have such music.

Carl Philipp Stamitz

Hello Schissel. You're quite right, I misread the date of baptism given in Grove and the LoC authority file as the date of birth. Thank you for noticing P.davydov 05:28, 20 March 2009 (EDT)


Hello Eric. I'm pretty sure that SMP's "Gottlob" is a typo on their part. I'm going by Grove, Wikipedia, and (primarily) the Library of Congress authority files [1] which comprehensively list all the variant spellings they've recorded, and "Gottlob" isn't listed anywhere. But we can leave it as one of the alternatives, to catch anyone who might find us after looking at SMP first — P.davydov 18:48, 22 March 2009 (EDT)

You're right that we couldn't hope to identify every possible mis-spelling of a composer's name, and we shouldn't even try. But their full birth names, and other names/titles by which they were known during their lifetimes (as given in Grove, LoC, Wikipedia), plus original forms/transliterations from their national alphabets (e.g. Russian), should be enough for anyone Googling to find the right page on IMSLP, which is the object of this particular exercise. It's quite fun really  :-) — P.davydov 19:18, 22 March 2009 (EDT)


Hi Eric. I've recently been going through the composer pages and checking the names against (1) Grove Online, (2) Library of Congress authorities, and (3) Wikipedia. This turned up a lot of superfluous names (in the "Wilhelm Richard Wagner" and "Arthur Seymour Sullivan" mould), which could be put right. But in the case of Paderewski, all 3 sources insist on the full form of his name, so there was no justification for changing it. The Library of Congress doesn't even include "Jan Paderewski" in their list of alternatives (but they obviously haven't been checking Amazon!) :-) — P.davydov 04:13, 5 April 2009 (EDT)


A few conventions:

  1. Do not upload the circulation records, please.
  2. For accidentals, use the templates {{Flat}} or {{Sharp}} which will insert the specified accidental.-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 02:47, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


Thanks. I actually did make a link - go to the complete works edition page for usage.-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 01:39, 28 August 2009 (UTC)


Hi, He died in 1968 and is therefore under copyright in Canada. I was just putting a message to the same effect on Generoso's talk page. The items will have to be deleted shortly. Sorry, Carolus 21:17, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

CPE Bach

Sorry, I just saw that the arranger died in 1964, which means the item is not free in Canada, unfortunately. Carolus 03:40, 31 October 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for discovering that Raff Society website. You can take the publication dates there as pretty much gospel. They appear to have confirmed everything via the entries in the Hoffmeister Monatsbericht, which is extremely reliable for anything issued in Germany. Certainly more reliable than some of those Sibley entries! Cheers, Carolus 05:24, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
