User talk:Fernando


Dear Fernando,
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!


Hi Fernando! I see you've uploaded some nice scores! But you'll have to go through the rest of the submission process as outlined in the Score submission guide (also read the IMSLP:Manual of Style for some common stylistic issues). Don't forget to attribute the scan to Sibley (also probably a good idea to put a URL link in the "misc notes" section of the file). :) --Feldmahler 14:54, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Dear Contributor,

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:

  • Arranger: The person who arranged or transcribed the piece from its original setting into another (an orchestration of a piano work for example). While not always known, arranger's name is often printed on top of the first page (e.g. arranged by... ; in french arrangée par...; in German bearbeitet von... or enrichtet von...). The name and the death date of any arranger or transcriber is most important from a copyright standpoint. Please provide this information if at all possible.
  • Editor: The person who edited the score. As with arrangers, the editor's name is usually 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 recently engraved or typeset score, the engraver (typesetter).
  • Scanner:This field should include the name of the scanner, or the website where the file was obtained, with a link to the site. (Preferably using one of our available External library templates).
  • 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: "<City>: <Publisher Name>, Ed. or No.<edition or publication number, if different from plate number>, <Date - use "n.d." if no date is printed on score>. 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)

Just a little thing

Hi Fernando! Thanks for the contributions! Just a little stylistic issue... can you use "Op." (capital O) and "No." (capital N) in the title instead of "op." and "no."? It is not a big issue, but will look better if it is correct :) Thanks! --Feldmahler 19:50, 15 April 2007 (EDT)


I have the parts to his string quartet in A minor here (from a booksale some years ago). Interesting-seeming piece - I haven't heard the recording (s?). Looking forward to seeing that violin sonata :) Eric 08:42, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Page turn question

As a professional violinist, could you take a look (if you have time) at the second violin part in Sinfonia Veneziana (Salieri, Antonio)? Is the page turn from 2 to 3 reasonable? I'm having an even more difficult page turn problem with the violin parts in Michael Haydn's Symphony in D major, Perger 29. Alonso del Arte 22:41, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
