User talk:Abra


Dear Abra,
Welcome to the IMSLP! We would like to thank you for contributing.

Please visit our Contributor Portal to learn more about contributing to IMSLP.

The Tutorial provides you a basic introduction to using this site. If you wish to contribute music scores, you will find all the details in the page How to Submit a Score. In addition to that, it is advisable for you to have a basic understanding of copyright law. In case you aren't able to find something you want to know in those pages, you can leave a note on the forums.

Please consider putting the Babel tags on your user page, to tell others which languages you speak. You can also use the Babel system to find users who speak a certain language.

You can communicate with other users by placing a message on their talk page (click on a user's name, and then on Discussion), just like I did on your page. When logging on the next time, this user will get a notification of a new message. Replying to these messages can be done on your own talk page, or on the corresponding user's talk page. Note that there will be no notification for the other user when replying on your own page. It's always a good idea to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), which automatically adds your user name and a datestamp.

If you want to discuss something with the whole community, you can post a message in the IMSLP forums. For very important messages, please contact the staff directly via the IMSLP staff contact list.

Frequently asked questions can be found on the FAQ page.

We're looking forward to your next submission!



Sinding Works List

Thanks a lot for filling out the rest of the Works list I created. I looked around quite a while on the internet but still wasn't able to find the information for about 1/3 of the opus listings. I'd be interested to know where you got the information to complete the entries I couldn't find. Thanks--Mitch 23:44, 6 June 2007 (EDT)


Hi, thank you uploading rare Grieg items. I'm looking for the Symphonic Dances op.64 (4 hands version) as well as the 2 Symphonic Pieces op.14 (taken from the C minor Symphony). I asked at Peters, but they told me these scores are no more available.

Let me guess.! With this speed they will be here in 2-3 weeks.

Kjerulf composition list

Hi Abra, the years you mention together with the works are dates of the first publication, aren't they? Another thing: I've created a workpage for Op.12 but noticed now that the Berceuse also belongs to Op.12 (it's No.5). I think we should merge the pages. Do you agree?

Dear Abra,

Thank you for your submission. The upload was successful, but you did not provide enough source and publisher information. Can we kindly ask you to fill in as much information as possible? Correct identification of a score is absolutely needed to make sure a score is in public domain and does not violate copyright laws. Also, this identification reflects IMSLP's strive to quality and completeness.

Please pay attention to the following items:

  • Scanner:This field should include the name of the scanner, or the website where the file was obtained.
  • Editor: The person who edited the score. This is not always known, usually the editor is printed on top of the first page (e.g. edited by... ; in french revue par... or éditée par...; in German bearbeitet von...). This field can concern the original editor, and in case of a typesetted score, the typesetter.
  • Publisher Information: You can find publisher information usually on the bottom of the first pages of the score. The format for this field is as follows: "<Place>: <Publisher Company>, No. <Publisher's publication number>, <Date>. Plate <Plate number>."

More fields are described in the Score submission guide.

You will find a lot of information on the first pages of the score. If you have problems gaining information, more tips and help are provided at IMSLP:Contributing scores and Historical Publication Info. An example of a good submission is Frühlingsrauschen (Sinding, Christian)

Αγαπητέ Abra,

Ευχαριστούμε για την υποβολή σας. Το ανέβασμα των αρχείων ήταν επιτυχές, αλλά δεν παρέχονται αρκετές πληροφορίες σχετικά με την πηγή και την έκδοση του αρχείου. Σας ζητάμε, λοιπόν, να συμπληρώσετε όσο το δυνατόν περισοτερες πληροφορίες γίνεται σχετικά με την έκδοση του αρχείου, γιατί η σωστή αναγνώριση μιας παρτιτούρας είναι απαραίτητη για να σιγουρευτούμε ότι ένα αρχείο ανήκει στον δημόσιο τομέα και ότι δεν παραβιάζει νόμους περι πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων. Επίσης, αυτή η αναγνώριση αντικατοπτρίζει την προσπάθεια του IMSLP στο να κατέχει ένα συγκεκριμένο επίπεδο ποιότητας και ολοκλήρωσης.

Παρακαλούμε να δώσετε προσοχή στα παρακάτω πεδία:

  • Σαρωτής: Αυτό το πεδίο θα πρέπει να περιέχει το όνομα του ατόμου που έκανε τη σάρωση του αρχείου, ή την ιστοσελίδα από την οποία αποκτήθηκε το αρχείο.
  • Επιμελητής: Το άτομο που επεξεργάστηκε/επιμελήθηκε της παρτιτούρας. Δεν είναι πάντα γνωστό, αν και συνήθως οι επιμελητές αναγράφονται στην κορυφή της πρώτης σελίδας (π.χ. στα Αγγλικά edited by... ; στα Γαλλικά revue par... ή éditée par...; στα Γερμανικά bearbeitet von... κλπ). Αυτό το πεδίο αφορά τον αυθεντικό επιμελητή, ή στην περίπτωση στοιχειοθετημένων παρτιτούρων, τον στοιχειοθέτη.
  • Πληροφορίες Έκδοσης: Πληροφορίες σχετικά με την έκδοση φαίνονται, συνήθως, στο κάτω-κάτω μέρος των πρώτων σελίδων της παρτιτούρας. Η μορφή για αυτό το πεδίο είναι ώς εξής: "<Τόπος>: <Εκδοτικός Οίκος>, No. <Αριθμός έκδοσης >, <Ημερομηνία>. Πλάκα <Αριθμός πλάκας>."

Περισσότερα πεδία περιγράφονται στη σελίδα IMSLP:Οδηγός Υποβολής Παρτιτούρων.

Θα βρείτε πολλές πληροφορίες στις πρώτες σελίδες της παρτιτούρας. Αν έχετε προβλήματα με την εύρεση πληροφοριών, μπορείτε να βρείτε βοήθεια στις σελίδες IMSLP:Συνεισφέροντας Παρτιτούρες και Ιστορικές Πληροφορίες Δημοσιεύσεων. Ένα παράδειγμα μιας καλής υποβολής είναι στη σελίδα Frühlingsrauschen (Sinding, Christian)

Composition Lists

Hey Abra, thank you for the composition lists you've been making. It's necessary to put the code (with the composers last name coming after the |) in order for the list to show up on the composition lists page.Mcroskell 18:39, 26 July 2007 (EDT)

Composition lists

Hi, I moved your question to Category talk:Composition Lists. Talk:Main Page is for discussions about the main page. --Peter talk 05:56, 29 July 2007 (EDT)

Grieg Pieces

Hey Abra, I posted the Grieg pieces from the MIT project that weren't already on the site & were PD (unfortunately, there were only a couple). There were several other somewhat rare pieces that weren't PD (Canon EG179, & 7 Fugues EG184). Since you seem to be the resident Grieg scholar on the site I thought I'd let you know and see if you'd be interested in these 2 pieces. Anyway, let me know if you'd like me to email them to you.Mcroskell 12:19, 8 August 2007 (EDT)

LoC scans

Hi Abra,
just a hint: you will get a better resolution of the scans if you save the pics (right mouse click) under the link "Access bitonal (TIFF - 147K)" on the right hand side. Hobbypianist 08:19, 27 December 2008 (EST)

Backer-Grøndahl recordings

Hello Abra, I corrected your links for the CDs. Use the little template with the addition of the field for Amazon like thus: |Amazon=Recordings {{AmazonLinks|########}}. Look at the pages and you can see exactly how I put them in. We use the |Recordings=[ Name of Recording] for free recordings that you can listen to online, as the one for the Rachmaninov Cello Sonata, Op.19. Thanks, Carolus 00:10, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

Ole Olsen's Serenade

Thank you so much for typesetting and uploading this -- I've been looking for it. Did you notice the blank bar 75, though, occupying a page on its own? Constructive critique only, it truly doesn't bother me that much. :-) Cheers, — Pladask 04:45, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
