Talk:Der Bürger als Edelmann, suite, Op.60-IIIa (Strauss, Richard)
I would like to propose that the name of this page is changed. Specifically, the word "suite" should be removed from the title. I have uploaded the full score of the complete incidental music, and will hopefully be able to add the full score of the suite in the near future. Since these are separate versions (although I believe the suite is entirely extracted from the incidental music), there isn't any need to refer to the page as solely the "suite". And since they're different versions of the same piece, a new page need not be created. --Madcapellan 08:56, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
- There is a well-established convention on IMSLP of placing suites compiled from larger works on their own pages, not least to avoid confusion between the two sets of scores. So the incidental music needs to be moved to its own page.
- However, there are conflicting opus numbers for both works. Op.60 was used by Strauss for the Edelmann suite, and also for Ariadne auf Naxos; sometimes these are designated "Op.60a and Op.60b" respectively, but more recent catalogues (and indeed the score you just uploaded), use Op.60-III for the Edelmann incidental music and Op.60-IIIa for the Edelmann suite (while the two versions of Ariadne auf Naxos are Op.60-I and Op.60-II respectively).
- Alternatively we could use the "Trv" numbers from Trenner's catalogue (228b and 228c for the incidental music and suite), although these haven't yet been used in any of Strauss's other titles on IMSLP — P.davydov 11:22, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
