Hi, I've only recently discovered the site. It's wonderful! After downloading a number of scores, I just encountered a difficulty for the first time. The vocal score of Debussy's "Pelleas" WILL NOT download. I've tried half a dozen times. It is a large file (over 40 MB), so it takes a moment; but when it is done, and I try "save as," the download freezes at about 90%, and then eventually the connection times out. This hasn't happened with any other file, so something is not working. Any suggestions?
Firefox. As I say, I never had problems with the other files, even large ones. Just this one... Unfortunately, I am a computer neophyte. I presume you are asking which browser I use... ?
Yes, I've downloaded various files from Sheetmusicfox.com, from the NMA site, etc. Don't know what the trouble is... mhurshell
00.18 hours, Germany: NOW it worked - this time simply used "save target as" instead of the usual "save as" - and it WORKED! Hooray. (But why, w h y ... ? mhurshell
Dear Feldmahler, mhurshell here. I am becoming a bigger fan every time I visit! One question: I have seen and downloaded a couple of autograph facsimiles; might it be possible to have a special category to cross reference those? What facsimiles are available? (I saw the Bach Inventions; also the Bloch "Schelomo" and the Chausson "Poeme.") If there are any more, I'd love to know. -mh
mhurshell thanks for your kind words. I have a lot still pending to upload, as you can see I'm uploading when I have some spare time. Do you play harpsichord? cheers
- Yes I do, sometimes - but I don't own one. Do you play an instrument? - Cheers back -mhurshell
Hi, yes basically pipe organ; also piano. cheers. /NachoBA
Ah, I thought so... another keyboarder! :) - Piano, organ, harpsichord, I play them but not much in public, any more. Back when, I played harpsichord quite a bit, incl. tidbits like Brandenburg 5 and bits of Kunst der Fuge, etc. HOWEVER, I am very happy to see so much 4 hand piano stuff on this site - arrangements of symphonies, tone poems etc. 4 hand playing is SUCH FUN !! Everyone should try it... would make for a happier world. What do you like to play? Nasdarovye, mhurshell
Well to be honest a bit of everything, from renaissance to modern. In the organ of course Bach, but also Franck...
I have submitted some other interesting scores... particulary a solo piano transcript by liszt on les preludes... --Funper 21:39, 8 April 2007 (EDT)
Thank you Funper! Just saw your message. And I just downloaded Mazeppa, which (apart from the fact that I look forward to trying it out) is interesting in that the last 13 bars are different from the orchestral version. I will have to look at the whole thing in detail when possible, to see if there are any other differences. In any case I am also very pleased that there are 4-hand AND 2-piano versions of some tone poems available! Indeed, the solo transcription of Les Preludes is also most welcome. Do let me know if you find a transcription of Hunnenschlacht. -- Cheers! -- mhurshell (April 11 2007, 11.40 German time)
1.) I have no scanner at the moment (I need a new one, but hardly ever use one) and 2.) have no idea how to upload scores. If & when I get a new scanner (sooner or later) I'll notify you and you can take me through the steps (for computer dummies...)
Actually, I'm not sure you'd want a copy of my score, it is full of (my) notes from performance. - mhurshell, April 29 5.37 p.m. (German time)
