Bach - Musettes

Thanks for finding the original. I have put it on that page. Generoso 18:43, 12 July 2010 (UTC)


If you find something listed there, the date given is about as accurate as it is possible to get - especially for a major German publisher like Breitkopf. No need to bother with a "ca." at all in that case. A listing in the Monatsbericht is good enough to hold up in a court. If you wish to link to the actual listing over at Hofmeister XIX, just do it as I did on some of the Beethoven symphonies. Great job in adding so many Sibley uploads Carolus 00:05, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Henriques, Religioso for violin and piano

Dear Schissel: Thanks for this upload. Unfortunately, the violin part is of Henriques' op.35 Mazurka, not the op.34 Religioso, although the piano part is correct. Could you perhaps start a page for that one, and then remove the file from this page? Also, if you have the violin part for the Religioso, could you upload it to this page? Lastly, I need to tag this work, and it clearly is an arrangement. Do you happen to know the original instrumentation? Grove Music doesn't have a comprehensive list of Henriques' works. Thanks. (Steltz)

Endlich ist er da! Ich habe so lange gesucht - vergeblich. Grandios!! --Ralph Theo Misch 23:54, 6 August 2010 (UTC)


Hi Schissel. While in this case there was no problem (i.e. your tag was correct), would you mind refraining from adding tags in the future? There's a specifically designated project team, all of whom had to read the manual, etc., and it's against regulations (ask Davydov) for non-members to modify the tags. Not a big deal, but please keep it in mind in the future. Thanks, KGill talk email 00:59, 7 August 2010 (UTC)


Hello Eric. "Kotschetow" is the German transliteration of the name, but he appears in English-language library catalogues as "Kochetov, Nikolaĭ Razumnikovich" (US) or "Kochetov, Nikolay Razumnikovich" (UK). These Russian names can be tricky! — P.davydov 14:05, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. In answer to your question, I'd recommend as a good name resource, as it shows the name forms used by lots of different libraries worldwide, and often gives some background information on the people in question (like nationality/dates) — P.davydov 17:44, 10 August 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for that.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 19:06, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Your Typesets

Hi Schissel, They're nicely done, BTW. A couple of points: 1) You might want to think about using the Non-commercial or Share Alike versions of the CC license for these as the plain old attribution allows people to duplicate your files and sell them on Ebay as part of the GREATEST COLLECTION OF STRING MUSIC EVER! on CD or DVD without paying you a royalty (Trust me - they absolutely will do so). At least if you use the non-commercial version we can complain to Ebay about violating the terms of the CC license. 2) List yourself as publisher, since it's really a new typeset/engraving/edition, even if you used a single source. Best Wishes, Carolus 21:53, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Tagging Project

Hello Eric. Would you be interested in taking part in the tagging project at all? The documentation can be found at IMSLP:CategorizationP.davydov 17:41, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

MusicSack sources

Hi Eric, and thanks for all the help with composer information! One thing: MusicSack usually cites many different sources, and dates all of them. The topmost source they give is usually the most reliable one (although there may be some exceptions); if more than one date is given, that means that at least one is wrong, not that they are all possible (again, there may be rare exceptions). In the case of Jan Ingenhoven, Grove 1980 gives 29 May 1876 as his date of birth. That is cited by LC and is the topmost source in MusicSack - so the sources that give 19 May are wrong, because they're dated earlier and, well, aren't Grove ;-) Not a big deal, just thought it would be good to keep in mind in the future. Thanks, KGill talk email 01:32, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Debussy Prélude

Considering that it was written in 1894, I find the 1892 date somewhat improbable :)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 19:52, 16 August 2010 (UTC)


Actually, anything that would check the links in a document to make sure they aren't redirects but actually go where they say they go would be nice to automate too, but I no longer have a clue how to do that. Eric 16:50, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

You could try something like this (replace titles=Main%20Page with whatever page you need to check):
Look for the <redirects> section. Automatically replacing them would be harder, one would have to code a bot for that. --Leonard Vertighel 17:24, 18 August 2010 (UTC)


Just notice your note for the Op.20: The title page in the BSB scan actually gives the explanation "Neue verbesserte Ausgabe" and both dates 1869/1894 Changed your note to reflect this - hope you agree--Kalliwoda 15:10, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Gretchaninov Sympony No. 1

Thanks! I've been looking for that for awhile. Andrewt 16:07, 26 August 2010 (UTC)


Hi Eric, and welcome to the tagging team! Ideally we would have left the old genre categories running in the background until all the tags were completed, but it worked out that the old system was switched off earlier than anticipated. However, I use this page to access the untagged pages sorted by composer, and have been working through them one composer at a time (Schubert should be finished this weekend). Graupner had been completely tagged, but over 80 of his works have been added in the last week, so he's back up in second place.

It's much easier when the uploaders have provided full instrumentation details — otherwise it's a case of using external work lists to try to identify the correct instrumentation and tags. The list of new pages will find new work pages that need tagging.

Thanks for any help you can provide, and if you've any questions then please either ask me directly, or here on the Project Members' pageP.davydov 07:29, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

One more thing - please remember to include language tags for vocal works. Thanks! KGill talk email 22:42, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Administrator Rights

Hi Schissel,

After discussion amongst the current IMSLP administrators we decided that we would love to have you as a fellow administrator. Therefore, I have given you administrator privileges. You may also request access to the admin section of the forums by asking User:Choralia.

If you have any questions please do feel free to ask another administrator! You can also post your question on the forums. Have fun! :)

--Feldmahler 01:08, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

BTW, the forums are already done (You're "eric" there, correct?)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 01:15, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Great, thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:02, 1 September 2010 (UTC)


I know the format of the instrumentation is ambiguously defined, but I notice you frequently put "1 Piano" or "1 Flute". I think it's best if the word isn't capitalized after the number (e.g. 1 flute, 1 piano). Just for the sake of consistency. Excellent work otherwise, and congratulations on your promotion to sysop :) Thanks, BKhon 23:25, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Actually I think it's safe to leave out the "1", as that's implied by the singular form of the instrument name (as in the tagging categories) — P.davydov 05:43, 3 September 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for catching my error. Allotria, Op.33, is indeed for piano 4-hands. I have corrected the listing. Are you a Herzogenberg enthusiast?

Tea Party March

Maybe you've already noticed this interesting coincidence yourself, but Matthews' new Tea Party March happens to have a rhythm similar to Bruckner's March in D minor, and more instances of the Bruckner rhythm than Bruckner's march. Alonso del Arte 22:24, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Sibley Project

I just want to let you know that your contributions to the Sibley project have been absolutely incredible. Consider this a very informal "star"/"banner", or something :). The output is, to my knowledge, far surpassed to anyone else's in the field. The hard work is very much appreciated. BKhon 01:22, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Seconded by the one who gave you the more formal version ;)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 01:36, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
