Hi, firstly thank you for the work the the MIT archive, the John Foulds piece is a stunning find for me! I just noticed that John Ireland's suite 'Decorations' is under the name 'Declarations' - I assume this is how it was labelled originally or it may just be a slip on your part (But I doubt it since you're a pianist =p). I know how to edit pages but not the original file names so I thought I would let you know.

Can't thank you enough!

I was surprised by the very good quality of the Bernard van Dieren-picture though he died in 1936. Are you sure this is the right Bernard van Dieren? I'm aware of other internet-sites they used this picture, but I'm still wondering if this is the right one. But no doubt, I don't know a picture of him, either.
The same feeling I had looking at the picture of Arthur Foote. I think the man on 'your' picture is a Unitarian Minister with the same name, but a little bit younger:  Maybe the right Arthur Foote is this guy:  --I. de Zwarte 10:37, 15 July 2007 (EDT)
thanks thanks THANKS for upload. I live in the house and the park where Cui composed these pieces and will have them performed at my upcoming 50th birthday. (Looking for good pianist...) regards, Peter
Do the MIT collection also consist of Grieg scores? Would be nice !?Abra
Would be nice , you make an enormous work here -it seems that you are living inside a music library :)Abra
Great site. Is there a way to contact members privately?
Is there a section where one can post requests, or wants, so that kind uploaders such as Mcroskell can prioritise what they upload, if they have a large collection.
Thanks. How do I send a Private Message? I really don't know how to use this site very well! I have added a few pieces to the "Wishlist" - thanks for pointing that out to me. If you can search an individual user's wishlist, please tell me how! I have lots of rare scores myself, but I don't know how to post them. One of the scores I added to the wishlist, I have actually just now found. It contains a logo stamped on it. I don't know how to remove tihs from a PDF file. Am happy to e-mail the file to anyone who knows how to do it, for upload. [It's Rubinstein's so-called "Etude on false notes" (1868), which has no opus number.]
Please feel free to contact me through the Private message method, if you can see my e-mail address.
There is also another user I can help, who is searching for Liszt scores, but I don't know how to make contact. Emj999 01:57, 29 July 2007 (EDT)
Thanks. I have tried to send you a private message. Don't know if I did it right. I don't have Adobe Acrobat. I have just the free reader. If you can contact me by e-mail, I can mail you the score. That's very kind of you to clean it, and then post it. I am sure we have a lot to discuss! Emj999 03:12, 29 July 2007 (EDT)
Hi Mcroskell! Just a heads up that I've responded on my talk page :) Sorry for the late response; I was away. --Feldmahler 00:19, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
By the way If you are interested:
A lot of Grieg manuscripts scanned in The EG 106 is taken from here. Very interesting to study! Most of the rest is in universitetsbiblioteket in Oslo, but not digitalized! --Abra 20:52, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
Hi Mcroskell! The US server upload works again :) I'll process the uploaded files probably later tonight. --Feldmahler 22:56, 12 August 2007 (EDT)
Hi Mcroskell, It looks like you've duplicated a file we already have (under the general Concerti page) of the 2-piano arrangement by Roisman and Nathanson pub. by Muzgiz. Is this a better scan - or is it the exact same file? It looks the the same one to me, but I'm not absolutely sure and wanted to check w/you.
Thanks, Carolus 23:12, 17 August 2007 (EDT)
Hi, Mcroskell. It would be great if you can easily get rid of the logos, etc. I really didn't like having to delete those - but the poster is often an unregistered user who left no address, etc. If you're willing to fix the items with offending logos, I'll just drop you a note and leave it in place with under copyright review status - thanks. About the Soviet pubs. with the "K" (usually it's C. #### K.): Sovietskii Kompozitor was a division that tended to specialize in original works of Soviet composers, though it did publish arrangements and transcriptions as well. My general rule for dealing with Soviet stuff is that editions of past composers like Tchaikovsky, etc. are fair game, while arrangements, transcriptions, and (especially) original works (of more recent composers like Miaskovsky, etc.) have to be reviewed much more carefully. The big series of NIEs for Soviet-era works that was filed by Schirmer did not nclude any for editions. It consisted mainly of claims for original works, with a few transcriptions and arrangements thrown in. BTW, thanks for being so good about including the publication info. It really makes the reviewing and verification job much easier. Carolus 16:09, 20 August 2007 (EDT)
Sorry about the Heller files. I didn't know they belonged to larger collections of pieces. I will try and find more info about each individual pieces and place them in their respective categories. I am no big fan of Heller anyway, so I wouldn't know where these pieces belonged anyway.
Take care! ~ jujimufu 20:15, 22 August 2007 (EDT)
Hi again, Mcroskell!
Here's the start of a list of offending titles that have CDSM, Everynote, or Elibron logos. Looks like Arturo and Ras1 are also interested in doing this, which is really great. I won't have to zap them. Thanks, Carolus 23:28, 22 August 2007 (EDT)
24 Piano Studies for the Left Hand, Op.718 (Czerny, Carl) - CDSM
Duetts for Violas (Bach, Wilhelm Friedemann) - ZJTC Music. Appears to be a reprint of an older edition.
Canzona, Op.55 (Bruch, Max) - Elibron
Piano Concerto No.26, K.537 (Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus) - (2 piano red.) The Paul Badura-Skoda candenzas (pp. 55-57) need to be eliminated
Piano Concerto No.27, K.595 (Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus) - another Badura-Skoda cadenza (last page) has to go
Cello Concerto No.1 (Bach, Johann Sebastian) - EveryNote, It's woefully mis-identified anyway. Not sure what the BWV is.
Hi, I think the method you describe is the one that's supposed to work. Also, the copyright status tag was changed, so I could tell you had uploaded a new version of the file. You might want to double check with Feldmahler just to be sure, since he's the real technical expert when it comes to knowing excatly how you should upload items, etc. It could be one of those things that requires the "parser" to go through its routine in order to actually show up as the new file when you click on the link. Cheers, Carolus 01:10, 23 August 2007 (EDT)
Nice job! I've fixed the Bruch page and it appears to be fine now. Here's the start of the next list. Carolus 03:11, 23 August 2007 (EDT)
Viola concerto BWV 1053 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)- ZJTC Music. Appears to be a reprint of an older edition. Done
Here's an Elibron, uploaded by our newbie (botton one): Cello Sonata, Op.19 (Rachmaninoff, Sergei) Done
Here's another one of those (Japanese?) ZJTC items: Viola Concerto in G major (Telemann, Georg Philipp) Done
Another EveryNote item: Seasons, Op.37a (Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich) (cello arr. at bottom). Thanks. Done
You're the fastest cleanup in the west! Here's another: Cello Concerto in C Major, RV 398 (Vivaldi, Antonio) Done
Dear Mcroskell, a little thing concerning the composition list: there are lots of German expressions. Should I translate them? Some works might have been published under German titles by (probably German) publishers...but I really have no idea. Maybe english is more comprehensible. I just wanted to ask you before doing it. Hobbypianist 15:33, 3 September 2007 (EDT)
Just wanted to thank you for your postings- just what I always wanted! Have the 8th and 9th but always wanted the earlier ones.
Could you help? I've opened no.2 without any hassle, but no.1 stubbornly refuses to open- any suggestions? Cheers
Mattalban 17:00, 3 September 2007 (EDT)
Thank you for posting this - I have the recording on ENS/CNR by Sergio Marengoni, and first read of the work (and probably of the composer too) back in 1988 or so in W. Newman's Sonata since Beethoven. Eric 08:26, 10 September 2007 (EDT)
Hi Mcroskell! As Peter brought up on the forums, IMSLP currently needs more admins to help out, and I was wondering if you would be willing to be an admin. You've been contributing to IMSLP for a long time, so you should be quite fit for the job :) --Feldmahler 03:18, 11 September 2007 (EDT)
Hi, take it easy with these Godowsky revised edition. after all, they are just editorial works and it might be better to put godowsky as an editor instead of in the file description. --Funper talk 16:14, 15 September 2007 (EDT)
what is your source for the Elgar worklist ? There are some works i didn`t knew about and hopefully i can lay my hands on them trough your source.
Thank you !
I downloaded Alkan's Impropmtu sur le choral de Luther a while ago.
In playing my way through it, I discovered that a page is missing in my copy.
I just re-checked the item on your website:
and indeed the page is missing from the file.
Missing is page 23; The file runs directly from page 22 to page 24.
Is there some way to reinstate this page to th file, or else provide me with a copy of it?
H. Edwin Godshall, Jr.
Mcroskell, thanks for uploading the piano reduction. I've been looking for this piece for a long time!! cheers nachoBA
Apparently not first published until 1935 and probably a copyright issue in some domains. PD probably not verifiable, given that? Eric 20:32, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
Hey. I can't seem to access the No.7 - Ständchen 'Leise flehen' file which you'd uploaded last year. I really need it urgently and I'm wondering if you could help e-mail me the file or allow me to download it in any way possible. Thank you so much for your help. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Regards Edward3600 11:18, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
I've been looking all over for the Berg op. 2, thanks so much for no.1. Would you by any chance have the other 3 songs to upload? Stevemc90 (email@example.com)
Welcome back!! Great to see you in these climes again! Carolus 13:18, 9 July 2008 (EDT)
Dear Friend, can you add more piano Sonatas by August Gottfried Ritter? I will be very glad. Thank you! Gerea 22:06, 11 July 2008 (EDT)
Dear Mr.Mcroskell, Firstly.thanks for your uploading scores!But I want to ask you,why can't I download Liadov's scores? Looking forwards to your precious answer!
Actually, there are quite a few of these that are unreviewed. I glanced at a couple and they appear to have been scanned from a reprint of the Soviet complete keyboard works (reprinted by Kalmus/Alfred) that was apparently issed by Konemann in the early 90s. From what I could tell, the only thing Konemann did was to add measure numbers at the start of each system. Carolus 02:04, 17 July 2008 (EDT)
I reached the file blocked error page,would you have any good ideas to download them,please point it out for me,thank you!
Hello! Exuse for my request. I cannot download this file: http://imslp.org/wiki/Der_Schneemann_(Korngold%2C_Erich_Wolfgang) There is now file there. Please, help me, I am very interested in this file. Thank you. Best regards. firstname.lastname@example.org
most of the other APS scores have a written introduction from Godowsky with them, outlining the specific difficulties, details of interpretation etc.
Your information about the score says "10 pages", so I assume that you may have the full score including the introduction, however the file which can be downloaded has only 6 pages and no introduction.
Would it be possible to supply the full score including the introduction, these notes are often extremely helpful !
Best regards, --Chamberpianist 06:13, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for your postings... I have the MAB volumes 1, 3, and 4... but am missing the out of print no. 2 of his sonatas.
You've posted most of the volume 2 sonatas, which is great, but by chance do you have the remaining:
Sonata No. 13 Op. 35, No. 3 in C minor
Sonata No. 15 Op. 39, No. 2 in C major
Sonata No. 16 Op. 39, No. 3 in Bb major
The No. 13 is posted there, but not Musica Antiqua Bohemica edition.
Hello Mcroskell! The previous discussion went something like this:
Me: As I'm a bit of a Brian nut (I recently uploaded the sole pre-1923 score to be found here), may I enquire which work was in the MIT archive? Regards, Philip Legge ♇ @ © Φ 19:35, 9 September 2007 (EDT)
So that was history: here’s take two on Brianic matters. I've sent off an e-mail to the Havergal Brian Society to ask permission for (at least) two of the pieces from this volume of solo piano music to be hosted here. Do you still have access to the volume from the MIT Archive? If you do, would you mind uploading the entire set of PDFs to the FTP server that Feldmahler has set up? It would save a bit of time for me if the permission is given, since I don’t have ready access to a scanner. Regards, Philip Legge ♇ @ © talk 02:30, 18 December 2008 (EST)
After the latest vandalism spree I decided to preemptively change the protection level of all sysops' user and talk pages (including yours). The pages can still be edited by every user as before, but only sysops are now able to rename the page using the "move" button. --Leonard Vertighel 07:29, 22 February 2009 (EST)
Dear Mcroskell, I approciate your list. I collect several materials and put it to Talk:List of compositions by Stephen Heller. I think it would be fine to figure out the original title (will be mostly not english) and the date of composition or the year of the first printing. I would like to ask you, which is the source of your opus list (due to the fact, that several opus numbers are used by different publishers for different works. Looking foreward, Yours --Konrad Stein 16:44, 23 April 2009 (EDT)
You scanned Sonate de Concert, Op.47, which is great. But where's the cello part? It would help a lot if you could add that. I have a general beef with scanners who don't include parts. It may be that the parts are often not available. Thanks in advance, hoping that will be able to scan this.

Hi! I tried to get to the Schubert Violin Sonatas op. 137 that you submitted. I'm getting an error saying they have not been officially submitted. Could you take a look? Thanks!
Could you please add page 26 (it's missing!) My favorite so far of Dussek's sonatas.
The work you uploaded to this page is not even a piano reduction of the serenade for small orchestra in F major opus 9, despite having the same opus number - the keys, tempo indications and even the length (9 pages for a 40-minute piece) are all wrong... Eric 19:41, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
As per your message of consent to NLewis/Lndlewis10, you have now been made a regular user again. If you wish to resume activity on IMSLP at any point in the future, you can ask one of the bureaucrats to give you your rights back; since you've already earned them, there will be no problem with restoring them should you wish to use them again.
Best wishes, KGill talk email 03:39, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
