Dear Musicadelsur, Are you the composer Néstor Guestrin, or do you have his written permission to post his work here? If not, the two items you uploaded here will be deleted very soon. Thanks, Carolus 22:31, 10 April 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

I am the composer, Musicadelsur is Nestor Guestrin. Thanks.



Hello Nestor. This is a composer who is known by lots of different names, including Pedro Ximénes Abril Tirado, Pedro Jiménez de Abril, Don Pedro Tirdao Ximenes de Abril, and Abril Tirado. There is a list of 'standardized names' for famous people, compiled by the Library of Congress in its name authority files [1], and used by libraries all over the world. They have looked at all the alternatives, and decided that this composer is most widely called "Pedro Tirado". That's the reason for the change. But by listing all the alternative names (including Pedro Ximenes Abril Tirado) on the composer's page as well, anyone searching for that name should be taken to the category for Pedro Tirado — P.davydov 01:20, 6 May 2009 (EDT)

Thanks for your note on my talk page. The Library of Congress say that the composer is called "Tirado, Pedro" in Diccionario de la música española e hispanoamericana, and that's why they use that form of his name. Although there's no article about him in Grove Online, he's mentioned in the entry on Peru as "Pedro Abril Tirado". Would you be happy to see him listed this way, i.e. as "Abril Tirado, Pedro"? Thanks for your help with this — P.davydov 13:27, 6 May 2009 (EDT)

Hi P.Davydov As you say, I think is better "Abril Tirado, Pedro" or "Pedro Abril Tirado" or "Abril Tirado, Pedro X." or "Pedro X. Abril Tirado". For my spanish (or southamerican) eyes this composer has a double last name "Abril Tirado". If not, I see as wrong. Mother and father were "Abril"! Nestor Guestrin

On the basis of your information, and the reference in Grove Online, the category has now been moved to Abril Tirado, Pedro. We'll wait for the Library of Congress to catch up  :-) — P.davydov 15:05, 6 May 2009 (EDT)

instrumentations and tagging, Lugares

Thanks for your recent piece for flute/guitar or flute/viola/guitar. I am trying to tag it, and I notice that in the instrumentation field, you put flute/guitar, and further up there is a flute/viola/guitar version. I need to know if both were "original" or whether the flute/viola/guitar version was a later arrangement. This affects the tagging because the tag is supposed to only be the original instrumentation. You don't need to worry about whether the flute/viola/guitar version will come up in a search, because I would put an arrangements header on that version so that it appears in a search also. Thanks, Steltz

Hi Steltz, Lugares is originally for flute and guitar, was premiered at December 2008. There is a link to youtube (at discusion page)to the video record of this concert. Later I arranged it adding a viola part and modifying some of flute part, for my friends of Matiegka Trio. They played it for first time at May 2009. Then, I think it could be tagged as flute/guitar, and other version, flute/viola/guitar as an arrangement. Thanks for all! Nestor.

Eitler:Sonatina 1942

Dear Néstor,

Do you happen to know the date of first publication for this piece, or if it was published at all? Eitler's work is free in Canada and other countries with life-plus-50 terms, but he is not free in the EU, and possibly not free in the USA. For example, his work would be under copyright in Austria (where he was born) and in Brazil (where he ended up living) and in your country (Argentina), because all three employ a 70 p.m.a. copyright term. Thanks, Carolus 19:38, 12 May 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

If there are copyrights legal problems, then is better delete this page (Eitler, Esteban). Thanks, Nestor (Musicadelsur)

I'll do a little research first, but it might have to go down. Thanks, Carolus 23:24, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Creative Commons Licenses

Dear Composer or Copyright Owner,

Welcome to IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library! As a composer or other copyright proprietor, please take time to carefully review the Creative Commons and Performance Restricted licenses including the full licenses in PDF format. Generally speaking, the best version to employ for new works is either the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 4.0 or the Performance Restricted Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0. These allow for free downloading of the items you post, yet prohibits anyone who downloads the files from IMSLP from selling the files (on Ebay, for example), or from giving public performances on an explicitly commercial basis, making recordings of the work without written permission in advance from you, the composer and copyright owner. However, if you are affiliated with a performing rights society such as SOCAN (Canada), ASCAP, BMI or SESAC (USA), SACD, SACEM or SEAM (France), SABAM (Belgium), GEMA (Germany), PRS (UK), SGAE (Spain), SIAE (Italy), Artisjus (Hungary), ZAIKS (Poland), IPRS (India), JASRAC (Japan), or any of the myriad of similar agencies present in this Wikipedia listing, please note that at least some of these agencies refuse to honor the Creative Commons licenses. You should therefore seriously consider using one of the several IMSLP Performance Restricted Licenses for any works posted here if you are affiliated with a performance rights society.

For those uploading the first time, please remember choose the menu option "Add Your Own Composition" when uploading your original works (even if they are scans of manuscripts or printouts), "Add Your Own Arrangement" or "(Re)Typeset" when uploading new arrangements, and "Add Your Own Edition" or "(Re)Typeset" when uploading new editions of public domain works. As it is normally assumed that composers and arrangers have edited their own work, please leave the "Editor" field empty unless another person has actually edited your work (in which case their name should be inserted). Note also that the English term "Editor" is not the equivalent of the French editeur or Italian editore. "Editor" refers to the person who reviewed and corrected the piece, while the French and Italian words are closer to the English word "publisher". In the "Publisher" field, please use your own full legal name, as making your scores and sound files available for free download on this site constitutes "publication" under the laws of most countries in the world. (Note that this is done automatically when using the new upload tools). Please do not list your works as "public domain" as it is not legally possible for your works to be fully public domain under the 'moral rights' provisions of many copyright statutes around the world. Composers and other copyright owners should be aware that Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 is very similar to public domain as it allows for the unrestricted copying, performance (live and broadcast) and recording of the work (including explicitly commercial use) at no charge, with no compensation or royalties payable to the composer or copyright owner for such commercial exploitation. Note also that the all of the above licenses are considered to be IRREVOCABLE once a file has been uploaded under the lawful copyright owner's authorization.

PS: As long as you have not actually inserted a particular Creative Commons license in the PDF file itself, you are free to change the license after upload to something more suitable. However, any restrictions under an updated license are only applicable to copies of the files downloaded after the date of amendment. Copies downloaded before amendment date are likely subject to the original license terms, so please choose carefully. Composers are also encouraged to make use of our new template {{NoPerf}}, which automatically places works into a new category - Unperformed Works. To add this template to your pages, simply copy and paste the little template above (curly brackets and all) into the "First Performance" field of the "General Information" section on all work pages.

Best Wishes,

Carolus 19:42, 12 May 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)
