Thanks for obtaining the permission for all of these great modern works! How 'bout some Elliot Carter or Gyorgy Ligeti next? ;)-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 09:15, 7 June 2009 (EDT)



Nice addition - thanks for adding. Please also convey our thanks to Roswitha Niedermayer. Since posting items on IMSLP constitutes "publication" according to the legal definition in most countries, please add the following to the "publisher" field in all of the items you kindly uploaded today (ignore the nowiki tags): [ Roswitha Niedermayer] I assume that since Roswitha Niedermayer is the composer's legal heir that she is the one in control of any recording or similar rights of commercial distribution of the works. If there is another party, please correct the info accordingly. Also, you may wish to consider changing the Creative Commons License to one of the Non-commercial versions, or even apply IMSLP's own Performance-restricted License in order to limit potential re-distribution to other sites like the Sheet Music Archiive. That's up to Roswitha Niedermayer and yourself of course. Carolus 12:22, 7 June 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)


Hello Josef Friedrich, You've been busy, I can see. A point about how you list titles: Putting items in single quotes at the start of a title creates a problem with the titles appearing in the correct alphabetical order, as you can see by looking at the August Högn Category Page. That's why I moved the title for Mass in C major 'Laurentius', Op.14 from the 'Laurentius'-Messe in C Major, Op.14, which I notice you've created another page for. IMSLP follows the general guidelines for titles employed by the Library of Congress in the USA, which is a widely-used title format schema. Generally, the key of the work in question is not mentioned as part of the title unless there is an outstanding reason to do so in helping with the identification of different works of similar genre. Since August Högn employed opus numbers, there is really no reason to mention the key unless an opus number was used for more than one work, or there is another reason the key would help in avoiding confusion. These are not absolute requirements, but merely suggestions on our part to make it easier for users to find and identify different works. Thanks for filling out the publisher fields. Best Wishes, Carolus 16:26, 8 June 2009 (EDT)

Sound Links

Hello again, If you have sound recordings of the composers' works you are representing, we have a feature whereby you can add links to files hosted at your website. If you would like to view the format of how such links are done, go to Symphony No.1, K.16. As you can see, we have links on this page not only to the sound files at Mozart Tower, but also an Amazon links feature for scores if you have made such scores available for distribution via Amazon (who requires an ISBN). We already have a fair number of links for the Dover scores which are widely available and very inexpensive. Thanks, Carolus 17:28, 10 June 2009 (EDT)


Hi Josef Friedrich,

thanks for your contributions; would there be any chance of you going over the pages for August Högn and Ernst Fuchs-Schönbach to fill in some details of the instrumentation? A lot of pages simply present works with no indication of what ensemble or solo voices/chorus that the work is scored for. This is relatively easier for you (than for us) since you presumably already have the works already downloaded. Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 00:47, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Missing opus work?

Greetings Josef Friedrich, Roswitha Niedermayer, Thank you for making these scores available. I am specifically interested in the Ave Maria settings and have made pages for Ernst Fuchs-Schonbach in my website. (See: ) I see that Op.7 (2 Ave Marias) is not listed though. Has that work been lost ? If you have it available, please contact me through my website. My email is listed at the bottom of webpages. Thank you. 16:32, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Noted the permission given you by the composer...

Fuchs-Schonbach's op.12 is covered by Canadian copyright for 2 reasons however, not just that of the composer, whose permission you've received, but that of the poet Seidel's estate, since she died in 1974. Do you have her permission as well? If not, will have to delete the page 4 Männerchöre, Op.12 (Fuchs-Schönbach, Ernst) and any others with Ida Seidel's poetry. Thank you, your contributions are always much appreciated - just have to check such things. Best! Eric 17:07, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Zur Trauung, Op.66 (Fuchs-Schönbach, Ernst)

Hello. The manuscript you uploaded to this page seems to be for Op.68 and Op.67. Is it possible to correct this? Thanks — P.davydov 10:24, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
