Section headings on work-pages

Dear CBo, we use "Vocal Score" as a major section division on pages for works like operas and other choral works. They do not go under the "Arrangements and Transcriptions" section. Thanks, Carolus 07:40, 7 January 2010 (UTC) (IMSLP Admin)

Ok, I understand. In the case you just updated (Athalia, Op.74 (Mendelssohn, Felix)), the score under Vocal Score section is not the original work, but a version with only piano accompaniement. In that case, it may be an original version from the composer himself (I don't know), but sometimes it may be from someone else (a transcriber). How can we make the difference? Do we put both in the same section? Thanks, CBo 07:53, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
"Vocal Score" is almost always with a piano accompaniment (rarely with organ) - a keyboard reduction of the orchestral accompaniment along with the vocal/choral parts. "Klavierauszug" is the German term used. For choral works like Athalia, Op.74, these particular arrangements get their own section as they are so widespread for operas and large choral works, whether the composer made the piano reduction or another person. We're not sure who made the piano reduction in the case of Athalia, Op.74. It could have been Julius Rietz (as the klavierauszug came out at about the same time as the Sämmtliche Werke. It could have been the composer, or someone else. Also, the term "Full Score" is never employed in piano music, or in music for a single instrument and piano. On piano music, the top level (3 equal signs) page division would be "Original version (piano)", but this is used only if there are "Arrangements and Transcriptions" present. In chamber music with Piano, where the full score is also the piano part (as is typically found in Piano Trios or Violin and Piano pieces, the top level is "Scores and Parts" - again used only if there are "Arrangements and Transcriptions" present. You've been doing an fantastic job in obtaining the Mendelssohn pieces from BSB, so don't worry about the page hierarchy if you find it confusing. Here are the page layout guidelines, if you're interested. Thanks, Carolus 06:11, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Beethoven Werke

CBo, Nice work on this page. It's starting to look very fine indeed. Many thanks! Now, if you can find out who the editors were for each of the volumes - that would be fantastic. Carolus 06:17, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Great job! Looking forward to this being completed...hopefully soon. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 02:20, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

And we are now less than 3 series from 2 different complete works editions of Beethoven! As it should be :)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 12:39, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Are you planning on doing any more with this?-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me
Yes I do! Just a little bit busy because of the birth of my son ;-) Maybe you can help me (for Beethoven, not my son, of course): I'm looking for the opus number (or anything else) to identify the Opferlied of the No. 268 (Volume 25)... It's not the opus 121b (No. 212), not the WoO 126 (No. 233). It seems not to be Hess 91 (only one voice)... Any idea? CBo 04:38, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

I have no idea (I know all of the opera by heart too...but not WoO). I've coralled Ivdruiz into finishing uploading, btw. Congratulations!-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:13, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
