User talk:Kaun


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

Please visit our Community Portal to learn more about contributing to IMSLP. If you wish to contribute music scores (either by scanning them yourself, or by importing them from other websites), you will find all the details in the score submission guide. In case you aren't able to find the answer in those pages, you can leave a note on the forums.

Help on using this wiki can be found at the help page.

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.

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.

Dear Kaun,

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)

Thanks, Peter talk 09:26, 6 May 2007 (EDT)



Hi! Thanks for your contributions with include organ works of Reger. Can I have hope for op. 135 (easy and short chorales), or any new pieces?
User talk:Arturo

Yes, there are still some Reger-scores here ;)--Kaun 17:12, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

I have a list of still missing scores, it is:
Op. 59
Op. 67
Op. 69
Op. 79
Op. 80
Not so much I think ;)
Now i have to upload Couperin.

I know Reger's Organ Work very well and so I know very well which scores are still missing. However: I can, or better: I will only upload Reger-scores of which I have teh scores and of which I think they are "worth" uploading. The "Reger Gesamtausgabe" from Breitkopf&Härtel (which I have, too) is imho bullshit and not worth scanning and uploading. So, nearly of all the (free) Reger score I have are online, some will follow. That's all I can do. --Kaun 17:06, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

You are right about "Reger Gesamtausgabe". Thanks for all your work!

Which pieces by Reger do you play, btw? --Kaun 06:47, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

Halleluja, Gott zu loben...

Dear Kaun

Today (05/11) Opus 52-1 and Opus 52-3 were uploaded. However, the two files are identical and represent both Phantasie über "Alle Menschen müssen sterben"

KInd regards


Thanks for this hint. I have had some trouble with some file names. But I hope to have fixed it know. --Kaun 17:13, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

Regarding split work pages

Hi Kaun! I think it may be a good idea to combine the work pages of works under the same opus number (for example, combining Reger Op.52 Nos.1,2 and 3 into one Op.52 page). It makes it easier to browse the composer category. :) --Feldmahler 15:18, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

Yes, I think so, too. Butr becauise the Choral Fantasies op.40 were alredy split, I thought to continue this. However, these Choral Fantasies are huge works and there are only 7 of them ;)--Kaun 15:29, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

If they are huge pieces, then yes they can be put on separate pages :) But its still a good idea to group together smaller pieces that share the same opus number, even if other pieces by the same composer are split :) --Feldmahler 15:46, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
So I have done it right with op.56? ;)--Kaun 15:48, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
Actually... I can't find which page Op.56 is... but as long as the sub-opus numbers are put on the same work page (basically what I said above) I'm sure it is fine :) Though this does bring up two points about the page title naming:
  1. It is always a good idea to use actual numbers (i.e. 1-9) instead of language names of numbers (ex. Zwei, Sechs, etc.), and it is also a good idea to use the No.X (ex. No.1) format instead of language names (ex. Erste)... it just makes it easier for people who don't know the language to understand what the title means :)
  2. It is always necessary to put the opus number in the title (ex. "3 Trios für die Orgel, Op.47") so that it is easier to find for people who either don't know the language, or don't know the title to the opus number :)
It would be great if you could fix the titles yourself... I'm not too familiar with German, and am not sure how to make the above changes sound natural in German. But this is very easy; you just have to use the "move" function at the top of the page :) Also, would it be possible for you to combine the three Op.52 pages? You can just create a page, and copy the file entries over to the new page. I would have done it myself, but again I'm not sure how the German titles go (should there be a plural for "Phantasie"? etc). I'll delete the old pages when you finish moving.
By the way, since you are scanning the scores yourself, is it possible for you to scan in monochrome (black and white), but with a higher resolution (you are currently scanning in grayscale)? This would make the files quite a bit smaller while not compromising quality :)
Otherwise, I really have to thank you for submitting quite high quality submissions! I look forward to your submissions in the future :) --Feldmahler 18:10, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
I see that you are beginning to move pages, which is good :) By the way, I forgot to mention something... the opus number should have the format "Op.xx" (i.e. "Op.12"), with a capital O and no space between the dot and the number. Sorry for being so picky, but this is just to look more like a real library :) Don't worry about the ones you already moved since I can clean them up later, but just keep it in mind for future page title naming :) --Feldmahler 18:36, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
P.S. By the way, this may be useful: IMSLP:Score_submission_guide/Manual_of_Style :) --Feldmahler 18:37, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
I know you must hate me by now, but just one last point: it is a good idea to keep the page titles short and concise; the text name (as in, name derived from the text used in the piece) of the work(s) should almost always be left out of the title, unless they are the only significant identifying factor of the piece. :) And so I've reverted your Op.40 move... the old name ("2 Choral-Phantasien für Orgel, Op.40") is very good and perfectly fine, but the new one is too long... Sorry about all the nitpicking, but I promise this is the last one, at least for now :) --Feldmahler 19:00, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

Submission errors

Hi Kaun! I'm in the middle of trying to hunt down a very weird submission error where people get "File not found" errors even though the file exists. Interestingly enough I'm not able to myself reproduce this error, but looking at the error log it seems that you have gotten this error many times even though the file is uploaded. Can you tell me what exactly happens? I.e. when did you upload the file (in relation to when you tried to submit the file)? When did you try to submit? How did it ultimately succeed (did you change anything for it to succeed)? Thanks and sorry for the problem!

Incidentally... Kdkeller is having the same problem... what language do you have your account set on? (what language shows up in the sidebar?) --Feldmahler 13:01, 14 May 2007 (EDT)
