User talk:Coulonnus

Hello Coulonnus, Thank you for your fine contributions. I see you know how to upload things without difficulty. "Editor" in English is not the same as the French "Editeur." The place to put all of the "Editeur" information is in the "Publisher" field. The editor field is used for arrangers, transcribers, and actual editors, which we have a rather extensive list of here. Best Wishes, Carolus 19:58, 1 June 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)


La Cascade de Rubis

Hi. Thanks very much for all of the scans of rare French music, among other obscure works! I'd just like to point out that at least one page is missing from La Cascade de Rubis Op. 22 by Sydney Smith- page 9 is clearly not the last page of the piece. Other than that, it's fine. Keep it up! --KGill 18:48, 1 June 2009 (EDT)


Thanks to Carolus for having corrected this field in my first uploads. I'll do better next time!

Cascade de Rubis, p.9

Ooops! I've uploaded a corrected version. Coulonnus

Paul Decourcelle / Heinrich Tellam

Dear Coulonnus, They are apparently the same person, Tellam being a pseudonym of Decourcelle. The collection On dansera au Piano! should be listed under Decourcelle's name, as should the items listed the pseudonym. Apparently, Decourcelle moved his publishing concern to Paris sometime after 1905. Any additional information you could provide on this somewhat confusing situation would be helpful.

72 Pieces for Organ or Harmonium, Op.60 (Battmann, Jacques-Louis)

Hallo, Coulonnus, magnifique !! - Eine echte Bereicherung der Harmonium-Literatur. Denn wie es scheint, ist diese Sammlung eher für dieses Instrument gedacht und stellt ein Pendant zu "L'ORGANISTE" von César Franck dar. Cordialement --Ralph Theo Misch 00:08, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

J'ai ajouté cette œuvre à la page List of Compositions Featuring the Harmonium. --Ralph Theo Misch 00:38, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Dussek: Canzonetta

Dear Coulonnus,

Jean Douël (b.1906) seems to have lived after 1975, which is the date if the latest reference to him on Music Sack. Since he is credited with fingering the above edition, it is unlikely that this is public domain in Canada or in the EU since it does not fall under the urtext exemption. Interestingly, his edition appears to be public domain in the USA (only) thanks to a failure to employ a copyright notice as required under US law. I will there fore have to take this down - sorry.

Boëly: 24 Pièces pour piano, Op.20

Hello, Coulonnus

The item you just added appears to be a duplicate of the old Richault score, not your new edition. Don't replace the file there as we certainly want to keep the scan of the old Richault score. Just add your edition as a new item. Hopefully, the WIMA uploader is not malfunctioning here. Post a not on Feldmahler's talk page if it is. Thanks, Carolus 04:42, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, my scanned pdf and my MusiXTeX-made pdf had the same name! I hope it is correct now.--Coulonnus 05:01, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Looks OK now! BTW, I think you're supposed to put the WIMA template in the "Misc. Comments" field, with your own name in the "Publisher" field. Also, don't forget the {{LinkEd|Jean-Pierre|Coulon}} for the "editor" field. That way all of your editions will be listed under your name category. Regards, Carolus 05:21, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Automated WIMA uploader

Hi Coulonnus. Would it be too much trouble to use the automated WIMA uploader linked to on each page? The main reason that should be used whenever possible is that it automatically logs the files you transfer - if it is not used, I'll have to manually keep track of the files you upload at this page. Thanks, KGill talk email 23:55, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but I want to change "downloaded from WIMA" into "downloaded from imslp" in the footlines of each page I upload. And some files want one or two other minor edits. Do I have to "transfer+upload a new version" of each file?
Well, I guess it isn't a big problem - the only issue is that it will have to be manually kept track of rather than automatically, which will require some extra work. Would it be possible for you to add a new line to IMSLP:WIMA/Log whenever you perform an upload outside of the special WIMA uploader, using as the original path the old file on (The format should be easy to follow, and there are plenty of examples already there.) Would that be OK? (Otherwise someone else will have to do it ;-) You'll notice that the files you've uploaded so far are already present on that page.) Thanks, KGill talk email 02:34, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, OK, I'll transfer+upload the new ones.


Sorry about that and thanks! Eric 12:21, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

My editions

Dear Coulonnus: I have done an edition of Saint-Saëns' Airs de Ballet from Ascanio for IMSLP (there are other larger works not completed yet). Some students of mine did the initial typesetting, which I then edited and cleaned up -- they aren't so experienced as to get the finer details right. The parts are under the tab for parts, and I didn't do a score, since the original score can be downloaded. But since the publication of my article, I decided to make doubly sure I followed my own rules, and discovered that I have one collision between a rest number and a tempo marking in the 2nd flute part! :-)) When I get a few minutes, I will correct and upload a new part. Best, Steltz 08:56, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Bach Cello Suites, transcribed for viola

Dear Coulonnus: William Bunting has written to the forums pointing out that the Werner Icking Collection's transcription of the Bach Suites for Viola is in fact the bass clef cello version. I've compared it to the version for cello from the Werner Icking Collection, and they both seem to be the same file. Since you uploaded both, is it possible that you uploaded the cello version twice? The file numbers are IMSLP121688 and IMSLP121689. Or could you check the original Werner Icking viola version to see if the mistake was in their file? Thanks, Steltz 19:16, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Corrected. Thanks.


In the wishlist rules, it says that if everything in a Wishlist contents has been fulfilled, please leave the header of the section intact (several reasons, including that the category page links to it.) Eric 13:08, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I read the instructions of this page too fast :-( --Coulonnus 13:46, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

..a word of thanks

Thanks for doing such a thorough and accurate job with your MIDI uploads. It saves me lots of time when I am tagging masses of files and is most appreciated! Regards, 04:51, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Bounjour Coulonnus, je Vous ecrit ce mail à propos du Concerto pour Hautbois de Alessandro Marcello (rev. de Taupin pour hatbois, flute et orgue). J'aimerais bien ce concerto dans mon école de musicque mais j'ai besoin faire des variations à ce partition pour ces raisons: on jouera le concerto en re min. et avec un clavecin; donc j'ai besoin modifier la partie de l'orgue avec le pedale pour un clavecin (et du moment que seront des eleves à jpouer je dois ecrire les variations). Pouvez Vous m'aider à ce propos pour ne pas devoir copier une nouvelle fois le concerto? Avez Vous le file de Finale de ce Cocnerto? Pouvez Vous SVP me l'envoier? Par contre si ce n'est pas possible pouvez Vous m'envoier la partition en re min. avec le clavecin à la place de l'orgue avec le pedale? A ce propos je Vous laisse mon adress e mail:

Je Vous remercie en avance pour Votre attention et collaboration


Cette partition n'a pas été faite avec Finale mais avec MusiXTeX. Le fichier "source" est ici : [1]. Si vous ne voulez pas installer MusiXTeX je peux peut-être le modifier modifier moi-même. --Coulonnus 09:06, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

sibley links

Hey - thanks again for all the help!

I'm going to write a script tonight that will tag all the sibley links where sibley doesn't provide dates for the composer since in most cases dates for those people are impossible to find anyway. It will save the line like: "{{Spill|xxxxx}} - dates for (composer name) unknown". That way it should be easier to see which links will be the easiest and fastest to upload. Icactus 19:58, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

I'd amend most cases to many cases, actually. They've proven hard but not impossible in some cases where I would have supposed them impossible (e.g. Percy Miles, Olga von Radecki (1853-1933).) Eric 04:44, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Op.88 no.2, op.88no.4, op.88 no.5

when you have a collection of works that have an element in common (they're all anthems or hymn-anthems, e.g.) even if they weren't published at one go, it's generally preferable, I think (with some exceptions- e.g. the 6 Quartets of Beethoven's op.18 for various reasons are a good example of an exception) - to collect the various works under the opus number (88) rather than having separate work pages for each sub-number... Eric 04:42, 25 February 2012 (UTC) (no.4 is mentioned on Worldcat but not yet on Sibley, I think. Oddly, their opus nos. make me think of Reicha's quintets - which do have separate pages but also are substantial pieces that have been performed and recorded quite separately. ... as someone with a à l'un et à l'autre turn of mind, I admit that Chopin may not have meant his preludes to be played all at once, either, nor Medtner his Forgotten Melodies... anyhow, thanks!)


I'm sure Wittenbecher is just a mis-spelling of Wittenbacher. Unless you found some info on a person also named Wittenbecher I would just upload it under Wittenbacher and make a note in the "Misc." field that there is a typo on the score. Icactus 21:16, 5 March 2012 (EST)


Rosenbloom's score is not "public domain", since he died in 1967 and IMSLP's servers are hosted in Canada- it will be in copyright there for a few more years yet. It can be uploaded probably to the US server but that's a separate process (not a transfer). (Since I can't "view" the file- I don't have those privileges- I'll try to get it from Sibley and upload it to IMSLP-US.) Eric 16:38, 15 March 2012 (EDT)

Geraldine Farrar - Rachmaninoff song

She died in 1967, so the English text is not free in Canada. Always a nasty and annoying little trap. Sorry, Carolus 14:17, 21 March 2012 (EDT)
