User talk:Generoso/archive1

Hi Generoso! It may be a good idea not to add the category to the pages. One of the reasons why I was ok with your list was because it is contained in itself; it did not require the modification of a huge number of pages, and therefore was easy to manipulate.

It is a good idea not to expand on the current (broken) IMSLP classification system; the category system just was not designed to provide such fine-grained classification. Adding new categories does not solve the fundamental problem, but makes the IMSLP system a little harder to maintain. I've already proposed the coding of a true library catalogue system into IMSLP, but that is going to take some time and dedication, and no one has taken up the challenge yet, unfortunately.

In any case, you don't have to revert the changes (added category tag) you already made to the pages (reverting would have no point), but it may be a good idea to not add more :) Thanks for the idea, but unfortunately it does not work so well with the IMSLP system of current :/ Feel free to add stuff to the list though (preferably in batches so to minimize the number of saves; every save for a large page is quite expensive for the server). Thanks! --Feldmahler 14:43, 19 May 2007 (EDT)

Ok, Think you are probably right. Thanks for your input. Generoso 14:46, 19 May 2007 (EDT)


Creating Work Lists Category

Hi Generoso. I noticed that you created a category for Cello compositions. I had the idea to do the same thing for Piano Sonatas & Piano Concertos. However, I can't seem to figure out how to go about creating the actual article. Usually when I make up one of these composition lists I just go to edit on the composers page and put in the code {{Bluefatbox|title=See Also|body, etc. However since in this cases there is not just one composer, I don't know how to just create a stand alone article that can then be added to the composition lists category. Therefore, I was hoping you could tell me how you created your Cello Composition List article. Thanks.Mcroskell 02:09, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

Edit-Well, I just saw the topic in the forum that one of the things on the to do list is to have the categories sorted by composer name, so I guess it won't be necessary for me to make up these lists. I'd still be interested in finding out how you created yours just for future reference.Thanks.Mcroskell 03:31, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

I, in fact did not make the page but it was the idea of Feldmahler who made the actual page I just filled in all the works that had cello in them. I would ask him as he knows how to do it. Good Luck. Generoso 07:20, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

Cello list linking

Hi Generoso! I think it may be a good idea to not link every page on the cello list to the list itself. The original reason why I recommended using a page instead of a category is to prevent mass changes to work pages, but linking to the list on every page would defeat that purpose. Confining the changes to one page makes manipulation easy in case it should be needed (maybe the page would be superseded by the library catalog system in planning?). Also, it would really have no end if we were to have a page for each instrument (and maybe combinations of instruments?) and link each work page to it... which is another reason why I would suggest not doing mass changes for this. :) --Feldmahler 15:35, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

P.S. You don't have to undo the linking you already did, but it may be a good idea to not link any more pages :) --Feldmahler 15:36, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

pub info

Hello Generoso. May I ask you kindly to conform the publisher info field to our guidelines? You can find the standard form of this field in the right box on the file submission page (the most important what you forget is the publication date). And if possible, make a link to the sibley library website, instead of the ugly url. You can find that on your previous submissions which I systematically changed. Thank you very much! Cheers Peter talk 15:02, 18 July 2007 (EDT)

It looks just perfect!--Peter talk 01:37, 19 July 2007 (EDT)

3rd Lute suite

Hi. Sometime in the past I was led to believe that the 3rd Lute suite manuscript (Violoncello 5th) was is Anna Magdalena's hand. Might you please clarify this for me as since discovering your uploaded file I'm now uncertain. Thankyou. R.christie 22:04, 31 July 2007 (EDT) I have just discovered I had been misinformed, the manuscript isn't AMB's, sorry to have needlessly bothered you. R.christie 08:21, 2 August 2007 (EDT)

Debussy Trio

Hi Generoso, Would you please check for publication info on this title? It's definitely a Henle edition, and I think it might have been published after 1981 - in which case we'll have to delete it. Thanks, Carolus 16:08, 19 August 2007 (EDT)

It does not not have anything written on the pdf. I did't scan it myself. But you are right it now that I look at my score here it must be a Henle... Sorry!Generoso 16:13, 19 August 2007 (EDT)
I deleted the file. It was copyrighted 1986 - I found this on the Henle site, where you can download the introductions and critical remarks, and a sample page of all Henle editions! Peter talk 12:59, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

sibley dates

Hi there. I see that you take the date of publishing from sibley's website for the corresponding files. Sibley mostly gives rough estimates, and sometimes they give wrong dates. It 'd be better to indicate in the publisher field the estimated date in brackets; e.g: Leipzig, C.F. Peters, n.d. [ca.1840]...

I think this style still has to be updated in the submission guidelines.


Peter talk 12:36, 21 September 2007 (EDT)

2L scores

Hi. There's a copyright mark on the 2L electronic scores you've submitted, so I've asked that this copyright will be reviewed. In the meanwhile, can you wait with submitting them? It would be a pity if all your work would be deleted if they infringe copyright!

Cheers, Peter talk 03:13, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Thanks, I hadn't looked so far... The performance restriced license seems indeed the best that fits. Regards, Peter talk 09:13, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Instrument Lists

Quite exciting , isn't it , those composition lists? It all started thanks to your cello page. In the future, IMSLP will have the most complete chamber music compendium available! I'm now just looking for the ideal lay-out - I tried different styles but none gives me satisfaction. --Peter talk 17:47, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

Yes, these lists are very helpful to find pieces. I too, have tried out many different combinations. What do you think of the one on the cello page now? It seems to be clearer than other. What is your opinion? I just changed them all. and it seems once the info is in they are quite easy to change format although it does take some time.Generoso

Op.3 by Servais

Hi, since Ernest de Munck (1840-1915) was the editor of the part I've set the approximate date to the 1860s, although this doesn't quite match with the table of plate numbers....but on the other side he can't have edited it at the age of four :-) Is the number really 7740? I couldn't read it because it's a bit blurred. Regards, Hobbypianist 14:53, 7 July 2008 (EDT)

Hello Hobbypianist. On the score in front of me it says "Revu et doigté par E. de MUNCK". At the bottom of each of the 3 parts, It says (very clearly on cello 1 and cello 2) plate No. 7740. On the Servais Society Site [1] it says Op.3 was written in 1844. But nowhere on the music does it say a year published. So your guess is as good as mine as when this edition was printed... What a great job you are doing for this site. Keep it up!! Generoso 16:24, 7 July 2008 (EDT)
According to the site you mentioned it was first published in 1844, so I assume it was later revised by Munck as reissue ...anyway, it's PD ;-) Hobbypianist 16:42, 7 July 2008 (EDT)

A word about copyright renewal statements

Hi Generoso, I very much appreciate your efforts to duplicate the publication info exactly. We have to make an exception when it comes to copyright renewal statements because it tends to confuse and frighten users who are not familiar with the labyrinthine nature of US Copyright into thinking the piece is still protected somehow. I'll add in the misc. notes section that it is a post-1922 printing that was scanned fir this, and that's what should be done when we encounter a "Copyright renewed" statement. One of the things we try to establish in the Publication Info field is the date a particular item was first published - so we can have ironclad proof should someone go after us on one of the numerous cases of copyfraud. Thanks, Carolus 16:49, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks Carolus, that sounds good to me. This last scan of Thais took a lot of work with photoshop. The original was in such a bad condition. But it turned out ok! Generoso 16:53, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

Strauss Cello Sonata

Generoso, thanks for uploading the Cello Sonata; it takes one more Strauss work off my list! This was also a requested score on the wishlist, and I have gone ahead and removed the entry. Thanks again. Daphnis 23:23, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

Kraft: Cello Concerto, Op.4

Hi Generoso, The problem with this is that M. Solc is the arranger of the piano reduction, not just an editor. Otherwise this would fall under the urtext/critical edition rule. Do you happen to have the dates for the arranger - just in case it was a contemporary of Kraft. Otherwise we'll have to delete. Thanks, Carolus 23:11, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

William Henry Squire

Since he lived until 1963, it would appear his work is still protected in Canada, where IMSLP is hosted. We don't want to delete the valuable work list you constructed, but don't post anything else of his here. We'll probably have to delete the one title. Thanks, Carolus 14:57, 4 August 2008 (EDT)

Strange that the site would consider this one as NOT IN COPYRIGHT but I suppose here we have to be more careful than them. Different rules or is it that they are in the US? Generoso 15:49, 4 August 2008 (EDT)

They're in the USA. Carolus 00:52, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Mozart: Menuet

Hi, I just wanted you to know that this arrangement is taken from the Serenade, K.375 and has been moved there. Carolus 00:55, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

ThanksGeneroso 04:26, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Franchomme: Caprice No.6

Hi Generoso, On this piece, did Albini arrange the piano accompaniment? Was Franchomme's original for unaccompanied cello? If so, this is still copyright in Canada since Albini died in 1967. Thanks, Carolus 23:14, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Titles of Works

Dear Generoso, Please check the work list of the composer before creating a work page. For example, the Drdla: Serenade No.1 was not for Cello and Piano originally, but for Violin and Piano. The item you posted is a transcription for Cello and Piano by Becker. Thanks, Carolus 17:18, 11 October 2008 (EDT)

You are absolutely right, sorry about that. i guess it has been a long day. Thanks Generoso 17:44, 11 October 2008 (EDT)

Debussy: Reverie

Hi Generoso, Unfortunately, I had to delete the lovely Cello and Piano transcription of the above because the arranger of the piano part, Alberto Bachmann (1875-1963), is not PD in Canada. Perhaps you should consider doing one of your own, which we'd be happy to post, of course! IMSLP has a magnificent collection of Cello literature thanks to your efforts.

BTW, when you put in the publisher name, it's best to not use the double brackets unless there is a page already set up for the publisher in question. We'll eventually have pages for them all, but that is a long term priority. Right now, we're building the collection so that all of the major works can be found here. Thanks, Carolus 14:03, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

I tried to find the dates of Bachmann before I posted but came up blank. Thanks for being so helpful. Generoso 14:09, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Berens: Piano Trio F major piano part

The piano part doesn't contain page 7, but two pages 8. But thanks for uploading ! - Ferruccio

Siklos Op.56

Hi Generoso, just wanted to let you know that something happened with page 5. Hobbypianist 11:59, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

I know!! The place where I got this scan had an error on that page (basically it was blank) and I was able to find a miniature version of the same page which I enlarged. The quality is less good of course but at least until a better version is found there is that one page which is more or less readable. If you have a better solution let me know. If I find a better one I can edit it in to the pdf. Thanks.Generoso 12:29, 18 October 2008 (EDT)
yes, that page is ok as long as we do not have a better one. I myself don't have any scores by Siklos, unfortunately. (I must admit that I haven't even heard of this composer before). Regards, Hobbypianist 12:57, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

Hi Generoso, you'll get a much better resolution if you choose Format 'pdf' instead of 'image'. Then push the printer symbol below to add the page to the queue. To create the pdf I use for example PDFcreator. Regards, Hobbypianist 14:40, 15 November 2008 (EST)

haydn cello

Hi, the cello concerto No.1 you posted is the international music co. edition edited by Rostropovich and probably (c). --Peter talk 11:59, 22 December 2008 (EST)

Well the concerto only has been discovered in 1962 and the edition we talk about is actually the first. So we'll keep it online and find the right copyright status out, because their might be a special case for posthumous publications. best wishes --Peter talk 12:49, 22 December 2008 (EST)

Berlioz catalogue

Hi Generoso,

may I suggest that when you make new works pages for Berlioz using the Holoman catalogue, put a space between the letter H and the number, e.g. H 36

This will assist me later when I clean up the Berlioz pages. Also, the correct name should be Category:Berlioz, Hector - one of the admins will be changing this shortly :)

Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 19:23, 4 January 2009 (EST)

Yes, that is a good idea thanks for the info. Generoso 19:33, 4 January 2009 (EST)

Des Knaben Wunderhorn (Mahler, Gustav)

Hi Generoso,

I've had a look at the cello part you've uploaded for this, and yes it is a bit of a mess (clearly compiled from numerous handwritten or typeset parts). However, I am not sure a precedent should be set by splitting it apart into 10 separate mini-parts. The page is too long as it currently is (3 dozen different files!) and having a dozen separate parts for each of the twelve orchestral songs probably will not help. Perhaps ask a question over at the forums about what should be done here. I think you should defer to the collective wisdom that is occasionally on tap over there :)

Lastly, page 22 has Das irdische Leben, the 2nd half of cellos: this should be moved earlier in the file to go with the other half of the divided cellos, after page 10. Also, the Miscellaneous Notes would ideally give a listing of which songs are represented in the part. Hmm.

Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 16:14, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Thanks for the new file, also identifying the first song. I wouldn't worry about removing page 29 (it belongs with the Rückert Lieder). Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 17:49, 7 January 2009 (EST)
Yes, It is a bit clearer now. Thanks!Generoso 17:51, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Cello Parts

Thank you so much for all of these parts! As a cellist, I can really appreciate these. I have one small request: could you please, after uploading the file, move them to the "Orchestral Parts" heading? This would save a lot of time. You can also just name them "violoncello part"; no need for redundancy. Thanks!-- Snailey Yell at me Email me 17:40, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Yes you are right. I just have to figure out how to do it. Thanks..Generoso 17:53, 6 February 2009 (EST)
Ah. WHat you do is click the edit link (obviously), then scroll down to the bottom of the "Files" section of the template (next will be a line saying "| *****INFO ID (SEE HELP PAGE)***** = 0"). Then, take the nearest portion enclosed by double brackets ({{ and }}), and paste it underneath the group (enlcosed again by brackets) directly underneath "===Orchestral Parts==="-- Snailey Yell at me Email me 18:00, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Cello vs Violoncello

Hi Generoso. I've been spending a bit of time recently trying to standardise the information on IMSLP, and there's one point that you're probably better qualified to help with than anyone else here... At the moment the terms "Cello" and "Violoncello" seem to be used erratically on some pages. Do you think we need to use just one of the words and stick to it, and if so, which should it be? Sometimes the same thing happens with "Bass" and "Double Bass". Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have P.davydov 18:15, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Hello Davydov (BTW. Great name you have!) I have used both depending on where the score was composed. In fact I have even used Violoncelle (for some french pieces) I prefer Cello. It is shorter to type. But it is actually short for 'cello or Violoncello. Your guess is as good as mine. BTW, [Wikipedia] uses Cello as their heading. Most music scores use Violoncello at the top on their pages but that depends on the country where it was published. Generoso 18:31, 6 February 2009 (EST)

It's good of you to respond so quickly, and I understand where you're coming from. Thanks also for posting so many cello parts on the Tchaikovsky pages! P.davydov 19:00, 6 February 2009 (EST)

You are welcomeGeneroso 19:02, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Vivaldi Concertos

Cello parts

Hey its great to have so many cello parts for great orchestral music. thanks heaps for that.

I just had one question. Ive been looking everywhere for cello parts for stravinsky orchestral pieces, particularly 'The Rite of Spring'. I was wondering, seeing as you seem to have such a collection, if you had a copy of any Stravinsky music.

I know Stravinsky isn't public domain anywhere yet but maybe if you have scanned them you could email them to me directly. That would be really awesome. If its not possible, thanks anyway...youve already uploaded enough to keep me entertained for a long time.


It actually is in the US. However, we do not discuss file sharing on IMSLP; it ruins the point.-- Snailey Yell at me Email me 12:13, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

Boccherini Cello Sonata G4 - Editied by Grutzmacher

I have just uploaded the original of this (Bartholff Senff, plate 897). It looks a very different edition from the first one on the page you uploaded (Simrock, plate 20897) - not even the same movements! However you suggested the latter was a reengraving of the former. It must have been based on something else?

Thanks for the G number of the earlier Boccherini sonata I uploaded.

At first, thank you for uploading such a rare and beautiful thing.

Hi, Inwerp. First of all, Generoso is not a copyright reviewer, and actually does not have the rights to change the copyright tag of any work, thus changing its accessibility. Second, the file is blocked because it is not public domain in the US, and IMSLP's policy is to block all such items. Sorry!-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 13:02, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Ysaye's 6 Solo Violin Sonatas, op. 27

Hello Generoso,

I have noticed that because in the US Ysaye's 6 Solo Violin Sonatas op. 27 is not in public domain, the rest of the world can't have access to it.

I live in Brazil, and here this work is in public domain for some years. The law here for music copyright is simple: on January 1st just after the 70th anniversary of death, everything falls in public domain. As Ysaye died on 1931, it is public domain since January 1, 2002.

Is it possible to publish this work in other website, or send me by e-mail?

Thanks, Alvaro Henrique alvaroguitar -@-

Dear Alvaroguitar, If you can not find (or get) it from IMSLP you can always google "Ysaye Sonata PDF" and see what you find. Best of luck. Generoso 18:23, 20 September 2009 (UTC)


Generoso! I am requesting from you again because you are an amazing and reliable resource. Have you any Popper pieces that aren't already on the site? Thanks! pnuttercello "at"

Dear pnuttercello, You can be assured that if I have a piece that is in the public domain I shall put it up on IMSLP! As I find the pieces I put them up. Many of these pieces I have put up from my own personal library. Of course the scores that are not in the public domain are not allowed here. Best of luck to you in your search and feel free to contribute if you have something that is not already up on this site. In the end we all benefit from this wealth of scores. Generoso 18:23, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Ravel Duo

Generoso, is there some specific reason why you wanted to submit duplicates of the Ravel duo? Do the bowings hold some special significance? Since they really aren't any higher quality than the ones present (and still contain bowings, which I would tend to want to remove before submission), I would lean towards deleting one of the two duplicates. Daphnis 16:13, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes Daphnis, The violin part is now better as I have now cleaned up the majority of the black, straightened the pages and cropped them. You may of course delete the worst of the two cello parts as they seem identical. The new one I added has also been cropped. As you know the French editions almost always use larger size paper and usually have large margins. But do as you think right. Generoso 17:01, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Maurice Reuchsel

Hi, He died in 1968, so it's not free in Canada. I'll have to delete shortly. That's one of the glitches in out attempt to mirror Sibley - they're strictly under USA law, while we are sort of under both Canada and USA. BTW, when you add something from Sibley, be sure to include the little template {{SibleyProject}} in the Misc. Comments field. I expect you're adding these manually instead of using the little Sibley Upload tool, which generates the template automatically. Thanks, as always, for your outstanding uploads!

I saw you uploaded some Cello concertos by Leo recently (I was about to upload them in the near future, too ;-)). However you gave as source just Internet culturale. Don't you think it would be better to specify the library (in this case: Biblioteca del Conservatorio di musica S. Pietro a Majella - Napoli), as Internet culturale is just a way to access a lot of different italien online libraries? --BoccaccioTalk Email 06:46, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Cello Sonata No. 3 by Sammartini, Giovanni Battista

The 1706 date and Bologna birth ascribed in the score, though possibly inaccurate, suggest Giovanni Battista Martini (born in 1706 in Bologna) rather than Sammartini (born around 1701, probably not in Bologna). What do you think? Eric 07:59, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

There are various different dates on Giovanni Battista Sammartini. But he was probably born in Milan in 1700 or the first two weeks of 1701 and he died there on 15 Jan 1775. Thanks Generoso 11:08, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Worse comes to worst, I think all of G-B Sammartini's works have all been catalogued- it could be checked whether or not the cello sonata here attributed to him is in fact by him (in principle; not sure where the nearest copy of that catalogue is.) I'm not sure Padre Martini's works have, though :) Eric 16:00, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Anyway that is also a general question open to anyone to answer, because in fact I don't know how these situations are dealt with here at IMSLP. If you'd like to comment, please do so on that page. Thanks, —Carlos (talk) 15:25, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Carl Maria von Weber Variations for Cello

I would like to talk to you about your scan of the Carl Maria von Weber Variations for Cello, J. 94 (1810). I am considering researching it for a doctoral project. Please contact me at your convenience at I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Generoso! While I am willing to let the Trinkaus stay on the site because there's only a year to go before he's PD in Canada, I felt I had to take down the Boellmann edited by Malkin, since there are unfortunately 10 more years to go. Even though the file would be blocked from downloading, I don't feel that it's really good practice to keep it on the site. (I know that there are a few other files like that, but in general it's good to keep their number to a minimum.) Sorry, KGill talk email 23:33, 27 April 2010 (UTC)


I just wanted to add to the others and say how much I appreciate all your uploads! About half my cello library exists now thanks to you! Almost every day I see something new and interesting that you've found! Andrewt 20:09, 28 May 2010 (UTC)


You may want to consider archiving your user talk page (It's getting long!). There are two common methods:

  1. Quick and easy: Make the page User talk:Generoso/archive1 and move all of your old, inactive conversations there. Then make a link at the top of the page under a section "Archive Pages for this user page" with the date of the first comment to the date of the archive (example: 5 February, 2007 - 17 December, 2021). Repeat when necessary.
  2. What Peter and I do: make the page User talk:Generoso/archive and add the conversations. Then, add a level one heading (only one equals sign) that says the same as you would title the link in the above method (i.e. Archive 17: December 52, 1980 - January 0.5, 200, B.C.E.). I actually put mine in a table (you can see if you go to my talk page and then the archive). Have fun!

P.S. You may have noticed that this is the same message I sent to KGill a while ago. What can I say? I'm lazy :).-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 21:07, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
