Your uploaded scores

Hi Normus,
thanks for all your uploads to IMSLP. However, you should also create corresponding work pages. Also, be sure that the scores are PD, for example works of Alexandre Cellier (1883-1968) are not PD in Canada, since he died less than 50 y. ago. Furthermore, some scores are already on IMSLP, like the Leduc edition of Bonnets Op.1, please check this, too. A detailled guide of the score submission procedure can be found here. Of course, you can ask if some things are still unclear. Regards,Hobbypianist 18:07, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

I will create workpages. I know that yoy block dubious material. -and also go through it carefully.

Lyricists and translators of lieder

Hi Normus,
I've been doing the copyright reviews on your Sinding uploads for the last couple of days.

Is there any chance you can include the lyricists and their dates of birth and death when you create the work pages?

In one case I found one of Sinding’s lyricists who lived until 1943, which means the item is unable to be downloaded in the European Union (life + 70 years = copyright until end of 2013).

Lastly, the file names you’re using aren’t terribly descriptive, is there at least the possibility you could remove the long string of numbers and put “Sinding” in somewhere?

Sinding Publishers

Often, IMSLP has a page for the publishers of these Sindi9ng works. Could you please include the links to them (if you know how) to save the editors some time and make it look nicer?Snailey Yell at me Email me 12:36, 9 December 2008 (EST)


Thanks for a lot of norwegian composer! Are you uploading the complete works? If so, is it the same edition? These would make for great featured score.Snailey Yell at me Email me 12:27, 22 January 2009 (EST)

Microsoft Scans

Dear Nomus, I had to delete a couple of Kjerulf items you posted because they have Microsoft logos present, which means posting them here is a violation of Microsoft's trademark. If you wish to upload items like this, you will need to use an image editing program like Photoshop to carefully remove all of the logos.

Hi Normus, Thanks for the extensive publication history. Since Hansen took over the publisher Carl Warmuth, are not most of the Hansen issues of the Romance, Op.26 merely reissues from the Warmuth plates? Cheers, Carolus 14:52, 8 April 2009 (EDT) Yes I think a lot of the pre- 1909 W.H.scores are from Warmuths.I will try to point that out in the list.I am still working on it.If you want to help me with the list i am just happy Re-CheersNormus 19:16, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

Hi again, The Hofmeister Monatsbericht is now online up through 1900. Warmuth first issued the full score, violin and piano reduction in 1882. The Alnaes piano arrangement first appeared in 1897. More to follow, hopefully. Carolus 19:56, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

Thanks.I will add that information too.(Have -81 for the full score from another source?) Normus 20:35, 8 April 2009 (EDT)!Found it now Yess.Thanks a lotNormus 21:17, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

Hello again, For the Coronation March, Op.13, are you sure that this work was originally for piano? Most often, a ceremonial work of this nature was scored for orchestra or military band, though it may have only been published in a piano arrangement. Thanks, Carolus 23:34, 17 April 2009 (EDT)

I think its a piano arrangment(Svendsens own ?), and there is one for 4 Hands piano as well. Normus 23:52, 17 April 2009 (EDT)

Hi Normus. Brilliant with all these Svendsen scores!!! "The coronation march op. 13" exists in 4 arrangements for military band, 1 for orchestra as well as the versions for piano and piano 4-hands that you mentions. A comprehensive catalogue of Svendsen's work has been compiled by Bjarte Engeset (the conductor) and is available here: [1] but only in norwegian. Cheers! AsjThank you very much Normus 14:01, 22 April 2009 (EDT)

Hi Normus. It looked like you were having trouble editing the Svendsen category page, so I just tried to help a little — P.davydov 08:31, 30 April 2009 (EDT) Thank you .I am a data-dumby :) Normus 08:38, 30 April 2009 (EDT)

You're welcome (for the Svendsen Rhapsody)! Thanks for all the Tellefsen scores, I've been a fan of his for quite some time! Do you know if thw full scores of the piano concertos have been published? Asj 06:25, 9 May 2009 (EDT)

Hi again Normus. I felt free to translate and move the Kantate til avsløringen av Wergelandmonumentet, Op.25b to Cantata on the Inauguration of the Henrik Wergeland Monument. Hope you don't mind. English titles are better to provide easy access. BTW are you norwegian? I'm hoping to do some Svendsen scores during the summer, could you give me a heads up for which of his scores you are planning to do? First I'm thinking of doing the Zorahayda full score. Asj 17:51, 26 May 2009 (EDT)

I agree, translating as much as possible to english is best.Nice that you do that.Also one can have orginal or norwegian names in (paranteces)on the opus list.?.I am planning to complete the opus list with at least 1 score for each opus number. (Something on: Op.16, In addition i have just plannned to scan the 4 hands version of the 1.Symphony. I look forward to see your contributions. Thank you from the heart of Oslo.

Behrens Collection

Hi Normus, A question about the above collection - are there other items by Kjerulf in the collection which are not for men's chorus? It's sort of difficult to come up with a reasonable work-page title for the excerpts taken from what appears to be a large, multi-volume collection without having some idea of what items of his actually appeared in the collection. Also, was Behrens the actual publisher, or was he the editor and compiler of the colelction? I ask because there's another name listed on the first page who might be the publisher of at least one of the volumes. Thanks, Carolus 19:40, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Hi dear Carolus.

1:I think everything is for Men's choir (TTBB (or other constallations)
2: Sorry, i have been a bit unprecis. The editor and occationally arranger is J.D.Behrens (There are also a few pieces composed by other composers, arranged/harmonized by Kjerulf),

the publishers are:

Christiania: Feilberg & Landberg
Christiania: Feilberg & Landberg and Bergen: Ed.B.Giertsen
Christiania: Feilberg & Landberg, Bergen: Ed.B.Giertsen and Trondhjem: F.Köhler
Some of it without mentioned publisher is Christiania: Feilberg & Landberg (Sangbok for mandssangforeninger, Firestemmige mands-sangbok, mandskor-arrangement.

I hope that cover all of it. Scoregreetings from Normus 20:44, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Thanks! That should do it. Carolus 23:38, 1 June 2009 (EDT)
