Symphony No.5, 'Prometheus, Poem of Fire'. Op.60 (Scriabin, Alexander)

Hi, are you sure the edition is from 1965 ? Naja 01:32, 15 July 2007 (EDT)

Well, i was not so worried about the copyright, if it is, someone will drop by and say can you remove that please, i hold the copyright, no? It just looks much older. Also all the dates on Eulenburg are much earlier. In end 50ties eulenburg was bought by schott according to wikipedia, so it would surprise me that is all.

Schott do seem to still sell prometheus with order number 8008, 88 pages though.~ Naja 19:07, 15 July 2007 (EDT)

Hi Nacho and Naja, The Eulenburg score dates from 1965 as far as we can tell. That does not mean it's protected by copyright, though, because the UK has a 25-year term limit for re-engravings of works that are already public domain - which means it's PD in Canada also thanks to the rule of the shorter term. The full score was first published by Edition Russe before WW I and the piece itself is public domain worldwide. Eulenburg often re-engraved works to fit the format of their miniature score series. BTW, Naja, you should check out IMSLP's own Eulenburg page. I notyes there are differences between what Wikipedia says and what we have here, which is mainly taken from Grove. Kurt Eulenburg moved to London before the war, and sold the main part of the company to Schott in the late 1960s. The branch located in Switzerland is still independent, as far as I know.

Trauermarsch und Trauervorspiel S.206

Did you find Trauermarsch und Trauervorspiel S.206? --Funper 14:49, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

I guess I found them, in the library of my university there's a volume on Liszt that is tittled "Late Pieces". The only drawback is that I don't think they are PD.
So you found it? Do you have the possibility to scan it soon? Not PD? That is no drawback since the compositions is out of copyright; I will be glad to typeset the piece if you send it to my mail, I will make a PD edition in Lilypond. Please do not hesitate to contact me. --Funper 17:53, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Ok, I do not have clases till next week (it's a holiday on monday here) I will take a look and see if this work is there, if it is there I will scan those for you so you can type set it. Cheers

Thank, can't wait to get my hands on it. --Funper 20:04, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Where is my Trauermarsch und Trauervorspiel S.206? --Funper 11:51, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

I'm sure NachoBA will tell you when he gets his hands on them :) After all, we all are busy at times. --Feldmahler 12:17, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
I didn' had a chance to go to the library. Unfortunately it will be closed tomorrow and on friday (Holy Week here). I will let you know if the work is there, but as I told you I have my doubts that is PD. It's seems to be an edition edited by Leslie Howard, so I'm 99% sure it's not PD, therefore, I can not scan it. Cheers.
Åh helvetes djävlar, fan fattar inte hur djävla trög nån kan va... I can typeset it, you don't need to upload anything out of copyright here. --Funper 12:36, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
Forget it. You don't need to find anything. Goldberg988 provided this score from Neue Liszt-Ausgabe. --Funper 09:36, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Liszt outline

Hi NachoBA! Nice to see that someone other than me is also into Liszt :) Only one thing, when submitting scores, be sure to NOT space between S. and the number, (e.g. not 'S. 206, but S.206). --Funper 02:56, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Hi NachoBA! You will need to follow the score submission guide to finish the submission of the files you've uploaded. The score submission guidelines page may also come in useful in some cases. Thanks! --Feldmahler 16:21, 16 February 2007 (EST)

P.S. Also, it might be a good idea to rename the files from Sibley that contain a string of numbers... they are not really informative... Thanks!


Hi! I will have to remove the Tournemire files because they have the CD Sheet Music logo on them, which is trademarked, and hence makes the PDF file not public domain. Sorry! --Feldmahler 20:48, 16 February 2007 (EST)

Errors and Corrections

Hello NachoBA,

First of all thank you for your copious uploads. But you make a lot of errors in your file submissions. For correcting these errors we need to download all the files again and look for the specifications, which is a time- and bandwith-consuming process. Therefore, we would like to ask you kindly to read the Score submission guide and Score submission guidelines carefully. An example of a good file submission is Fugues et Caprices (Roberday, François) which I have corrected for you.

If you have problems with the submission process, just let us know (e.g. add a comment on this page) and we will be glad to help you. Success, --Peter 06:01, 18 February 2007 (EST) Peter, Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused rest asure that it was not on purpose I thought I was doing it right. I've read the guidelines but obviously I misunderstood some part. I will try in the future to accomodate my uploads to IMSLP's standards. Please do not hesitate in contact me telling me again wether I'm doing it right or wrong. Let me correct all the works I've uploaded. I have them in my computer so it won't be bandwith consuming. sorry again. nacho

W.F. Bach

Just a heads up, but I think you have a fan haha :) See Talk:Fantasie D-Dur, F.17 (Bach, Wilhelm Friedemann). Though if you could follow what Peter said it would be even better! :) The idea is just to provide as much information as you can, so as to make it easier for people who download the score, and at the same time increasing IMSLP's quality. --Feldmahler 11:09, 18 February 2007 (EST)

As I've said, sorry for the inconveniences that I've may caused. Honestly my idea was to contribute to the archive a lot of files. I will try to put as much as information as I can. On a separate note, I think that the pieces that I've put under Johann Christoph Bach should go under Johann Christoph Friederich Bach. The rest of the files that I have uploaded are already updated and are now to IMSLP standards. cheers

Hehe... don't worry about it :) I know that it does take a while before one gets used to IMSLP's submission style. Even after reading the guide and guidelines there are still many things that are "habits" which regular IMSLP contributors have slowly developed over time (as you can see, some of my early submissions are quite poor too). All of the regular and semi-regular IMSLP contributors go through a period of getting used to the submission system and submission style used on IMSLP. Which, unfortunately, cannot really be "written down", as they do differ somewhat on a case-to-case basis. But again, don't worry about it! Do your best; me and other regular IMSLP contributors will fix things if you happen to make an error (and/or tell you about it).
About the J.C.F. Bach pieces, I've fixed them :) --Feldmahler 01:00, 19 February 2007 (EST)

Mhurshell here. Thanks for the added Friedemann Fantasias, NachoBA! And YES, the one I was looking for is there  :)  :)  :)  :) - my memory was playing tricks on me, it was d minor, as it turned out (F. 18). So - nice going! (If I had looked more closely before, I would have seen the beginning of the piece on the last page of F.17 - so much to do, so little time etc.) Anyway, the next time I have access to a harpsichord I am going to give it a whirl. -mh, in WFB heaven

THANKS for putting up the 4 Friedemann Bach FANTASIAS! Are there any more forthcoming? For years I have been trying to find a fantasia in (I think) G minor; it was used in an old German movie (very corny film, but fun) called "Friedemann Bach." In any case, thanks for all the great scores you are contributing.


Friedemann Bach (1941) - Movie

In responce to mhurshell , i also have been looking for a copy of the fantasia played in the 1941 movie "friedemann Bach" .Ive had the advantage of having a copy of this film and it would seam that the fantasia played on the film is not F18 , it seams to be another fantasia using the same first page of F18 and the grave sectoin from F19 , then material i cannot find .Dose anyone know what fantasia this is ? or was it compiled from various fantasias by the harpsichordist in the movie ?

thank you very much for putting these w.f.bach scores up



Hello!My name's Michel.Thank's for Guilmant's "Archives des Maitres de l'Orgue". But....some bad men deleted these files,********!!!!!!!!! Can you upload it to my e-mail?

Don't worry, the damage has been reverted.

Problem with Raison.pdf file

Hi, there seems to be a problem when downloading Raison.pdf file, only 147 kB of it are actually downloaded, which ends up with a corrupted file.


Hi Reno! This problem is not NachoBA's; rather, there seems to be similar problems for other files too, and I'm trying to find a pattern (I cannot reproduce this). Can you answer the questions that I listed in this topic? Thanks! --Feldmahler 18:04, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Pièces de Clavecín (Couperin, François)

Hello NachoBA, thanks a lot for uploading those pieces - it was me who put them on the wishlist :) Unfortunately, several pages are missing in the file (I have noted them on the work page). Any chance of filling them in sometime in the future? Anyway, even without those pages, it is great to have those pieces. Thanks again. --Leonard Vertighel 15:19, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Thanks for your reply. I have noted the missing pages on the work page under "Misc. Notes". They are no. 1, 16, 17, 32, 33, 48, 49, 64, 65, 80, 81, 96, 97, 112, 113, 128, 129, 144, 145, 160, 161, 176, 177, 192, 193, 208, 209, 224, 225. I'll have a look at the other Couperin pieces, too. What a pity that I don't play the organ - I'd really love to :) --Leonard Vertighel 17:53, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

I forgot: Since the missing pages are always in pairs (16-17, 32-33, etc.), I wonder if maybe some introductory page (before page 1) might be missing, too. --Leonard Vertighel 17:59, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
Also, there's always 14 pages between the two missing pages... what a wonderfully mathematical way to miss pages hehehe ;) --Feldmahler 18:05, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

About sheets

Unfortunately, i have incomplete Mendelssohn organ works. But i am still searching. For now, i have 3 preludes and fugues op. 37 and 1, 3 and 4 sonata. I'm looking for Sweelinck complete works (like these from CD sheet music) and more rare baroque or romantic organ works/composers.

You can freely mail me:

Three preludes and fugues of Mendelssohn uploaded!

maurice emmanuel

Hi, i think you mixed up names of Maurice Emmanuel: the category is listed Emmanuel Maurice :)

Oopps hehe you are right, sorry for that

--Peter 12:28, 1 April 2007 (EDT)


Hello Nacho, when submitting typesets one has to be extremely careful. Do you have the permission for uploading soler's sonatas? On Chateaugris' Page you can read: "Copyright © 2005 ChateauGris. All rights reserved."

Hi Peter, I do not have his permission, though in his site one can read that he is posting the stuff as "public domain"(See here ). I've pressumed that this is enough to upload the stuff to the IMSLP. Let me know if you believe that an express permission should be asked. Cheers / nachoBA

for the composers names, I asked feldmahler.--Peter 18:52, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Well, there is an entry in the "News" page which says specifically that he is placing the files in the public domain (site, archived version here)... check out the entry for Oct. 14, 2005 :)
However, I think it might be a good idea to make note of this on the work pages just to prevent trouble, though I think by posting this on IMSLP, we should be pretty much in the clear :) --Feldmahler 18:58, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Just a heads up that I've responded to your question here. :) --Feldmahler 23:29, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

Bartok Quartet No.5

Hi NachoBA! You'll have to remove the preface by Ligeti, because he died just recently (in 2006) and so it is not in the public domain. I've removed the file... you can upload to the same filename if you want to resubmit i twithout the preface :) --Feldmahler 17:39, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Sechs Lieder, Op. 3

Hi NachoBA! You will have to resubmit the file (since you changed the filename manually) and delete the new entry (or the old one for that matter) to fix the error on that page. Thanks for the submissions though :) --Feldmahler 01:30, 12 April 2007 (EDT)


I'm back with few new contributions. Mendelssohn, Ropartz, Brosig and Frescobaldi.
What about you? Any new scores incoming?
All the best,

Pages 10-11 are apparently missing. Any chance you could resubmit this?--Dtoub 13:27, 30 June 2007 (EDT)


Hi NachoBA! Thanks for the note about the files being the same edition and same scan. Identical files should be removed, and I will do so soon :) --Feldmahler 12:09, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

Thank you for Karg-Elert!

How delightful to hear the fantastic op.127 on the CPO CD (Karg-Elert Piano Music Volume 4) and then find them here!

Do you by any chance have Mosaik, op.146?

Many thanks,

-- Eric


Hi NachoBA! Thanks for contributing so many organ works on Liszt. I saw that they were scanned in grayscale, which is good for computer-viewing but they don't turn that good when printing. In the future, maybe it's better to scan them in monochrome with 600 dpi resolution instead. That way they will be in decent quality. :) --Funper talk 07:59, 17 October 2007 (EDT)

Louis Marchand

NachoBA, many many thanks for your wonderful contributions to IMSLP - there is some wonderful repertoire here that you have added. With regards to the organ works of Louis Marchand, i noticed that pages 49 & 50 are the same, presumably the real page 50 is somewhere. I would appreciate it immensely if you was able to add this to what is a wondeful collection of French classical organ music. Alternatively, I'll give you my email, I would be very grateful if you have time to send me the missing page. Please keep posting and sharing this wonderful music with the world! Kind regards, Chris MonsieurOrgue 12:25, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Sorry, forgot to add my email for the above comment. My email is Thanks again. Chris MonsieurOrgue 12:27, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Hi NachBa

I admired your big work here it's great. thanks If you please could you send me (Alban Berg violin concerto in pdf)becouse it's locked here My mail is

Missing pages in "Les Cinq Doigts, Op.777 (Czerny, Carl)"

Hello NachoBA,

Thank you for your uploads :)

I would just like to point out that there is a page missing from Les Cinq Doigts, Op.777 (Czerny, Carl) because exercises 17 and 18 are missing (they are replaced by a duplicate page of exercises 15 and 16).

Would it be possible for you the scan this missing page and upload a fixed PDF with the complete set of pages?

Thank you :)

PS: Somebody already pointed this out in the piece's talk page here Talk:Les Cinq Doigts, Op.777 (Czerny, Carl)

Tournemire new scores

Hello, I'm really intrested in Ch.Tournemire organ music. I wonder if you have a 5 choral-improvisations (especially I'm thinking about Choral-impro sur le "Victimae paschali laudes" and sur le "Te Deum"). If you could add this scores into imslp that will be really great! :) Greetings.

Vierne - Pièces de Fantaisie

Dear NachoBa. Thanks for all the great sheets you have already uploaded. I would like to ask a favor. Could you upload better scans of Louis Vierne's Pièces de Fantaisie? Some things are not readable. Also, do you have the same original scores of the Pièces en style libre? I would be very pleased. Please let me know. gertjanronner at gmail dot com.

Bartók Contrasts

I noticed that you uploaded the score for Bartók's Contrasts for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano, but it was blocked. I'm wondering if you could perhaps send me the score. If so, reply either here or on my talk page, and I'll arrange it.

Thanks so much in advance --Zagorath 13:14, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not NachoBA, but I should point out that the file is blocked because it is under copyright in the US and the EU. Therefore, it would be a possible violation of copyright law to send it to you (we have no way of verifying your location). I'm afraid you'll have to get the score somewhere else. Sorry, KGill talk email 15:33, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
