Just a word of advice, if you misspelled a page name, you can move it instead of creating a whole new page. (Unless, of course, you haven't been here long enough to have that privilege- someone else will move it for you.) It's just that it creates a bit of extra work for the admins, so please keep that in mind for the future. Thanks for the submissions! --KGill 12:29, 11 July 2009 (EDT)


Adding Composers (and works)

Hello Oscar, Welcome to IMSLP and thanks for your lovely color scans. In the future, when you add composers, please do not place a period after the names. Thus, instead of "Alió., Francisco." it should be "Alió, Francisco". The same applies to titles of works, so that "Barcarola" should be used instead of "Barcarola." Also, in English, "editor" is not the same as the French "editeur". The correct place for Durand is "publisher". Thanks, Carolus 16:42, 12 July 2009 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Also, please check our existing pages before creating a superfluous page for a work. The Beethoven String Quintet No.1, Op.4 already has a page. The extra added page for "Gran Quintetto" has been deleted and redirected to this page, where you will find the files you uploaded. Thanks, Carolus 02:55, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Dear OscarJaume,

Thank you for your submission. The upload was successful, but you did not provide enough source and publisher information. Can we kindly ask you to fill in as much information as possible? Correct identification of a score is absolutely needed to make sure a score is in public domain and does not violate copyright laws. Also, this identification reflects IMSLP's strive to quality and completeness.

Please pay attention to the following items:

  • Scanner:This field should include the name of the scanner, or the website where the file was obtained.
  • Editor: The person who edited the score. This is not always known, usually the editor is printed on top of the first page (e.g. edited by... ; in french revue par... or éditée par...; in German bearbeitet von...). This field can concern the original editor, and in case of a typesetted score, the typesetter.
  • Publisher Information: You can find publisher information usually on the bottom of the first pages of the score. The format for this field is as follows: "<Place>: <Publisher Company>, No. <Publisher's publication number>, <Date>. Plate <Plate number>."

More fields are described in the Score submission guide.

You will find a lot of information on the first pages of the score. If you have problems gaining information, more tips and help are provided at IMSLP:Contributing scores and Historical Publication Info. An example of a good submission is Frühlingsrauschen (Sinding, Christian)

Superfluous Pages

Please do not create any more pages for the corelli violin sonatas!! They already have a page here. Please upload files to that page!-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 19:05, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Editor field

Hello Oscar, Just a reminder. The term "Editor" in English is not equal to "Editeur" in French. The correct place to insert the name of the "Editeur" is "Publisher." The English therm "Editor" is roughly equivalent to the Deutsche "bearbeiter" or "herausgegeber". Thanks for all of your lovely color scans of unusual items.

Large works (like operas and zarzuelas)

Hello Oscar, when your adding a piece that is taken from a larger work, as in the zarzuela El baile de Luis Alonso, always add the excerpt (like the polka) to the page for the main work. That's why I moved the page you created for Maria Jesus to El baile de Luis Alonso. This way, if someone later on comes up with a vocal score for the entire zarzuela, the page for that major work will already be here in place. Thanks, Carolus 19:30, 1 November 2009 (UTC)


Hello Oscar, Many thanks for your unique and interesting contributions. For the Saint-Saens Prologue, you added an excerpt from a newspaper or magazine supplement titled "Album Musica" from December 1912. Do you happen to have some of the other items listed on the cover, particularly the Dukas Fanfare pour précéder La Péri? It would be a great help if you did, as it would prove publication in 1912 and the present standing claim of 1927 - rendering the work under copyright in the USA - would be invalidated. This we allow us to remove the [TB] blocking from it to make it available. Thanks, Carolus 07:22, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Saint-Saens Prologue?

You uploaded a peice called 'Prologue', apparently by Saint-Saens, however in MUCH research on the composer I've never come a piece by that name -- certainly it's not an instrumental work or it'd be in the thematic catalog, which it's not. The text in the score makes me think it's probably incidental music, and I'd love to know just what it's the prologue TO (and the page should be moved accordingly, of course). Any help would be greatful. ♫ Melodia Chaconne ♫ 07:31, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

I think it's to a larger work issued later on. Daphnis might know. It happens there's another very interesting item listed on the cover of that particular supplement (see above) that has copyright ramifications should we actually find it. I already mentioned this item on Daphnis' talk page. Carolus 07:35, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm also not familiar with this work and, in my recent renovation of the Saint-Saëns category involving addition of numerous works, had not seen it listed in the thematic catalogue (Ratner, Vol. 1) I used in my preparation. The list of works in the Grove article also makes no mention of this. Daphnis 21:45, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Scan settings

Dear Oscar, I've followed several of your contributions thus far and notice you're unnecessarily scanning to color. Please avoid doing so and instead use monochrome (aka black and white, 1-bit, line art) and scan at a minimum of 300dpi. Color should never be used for music unless scanning manuscripts or other types of documents where it is desirable to keep written-in notes or other hand-script that is important. Would it be too much to ask that you re-scan (this time in monochrome) your recent Saint-Saëns contributions? Also take care to keep the score absolutely flat on the bed of your scanner, especially at the spine so as not to create the "wave" effect currently seen on these two uploads. Thanks.

Adding multiple files

Hi Oscar. When submitting multiple files at the same time to the same page, please use 'Add multiple score files to this page' instead of the normal link. This lets you add them all at once. Thanks, KGill talk email 15:13, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
