Thank you for your contributions to IMSLP. I have to admit that last year I started working on a Reinecke works list, but didn't get very far with it before I quit. Nice work! Hrdinský 11:23, 13 May 2009 (EDT)

I'd like to echo this thanks (A bit late...). Great job-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:26, 7 June 2010 (UTC)


Many thanks for the wonderful work you do on IMSLP! As a music student, I find this one of the most powerful resources for finding information and scores. Your contributions are much appreciated. I would like to make a request, but would prefer to communicate with you directly. If you could please contact me via, I would be much obliged...--Skryabushka 05:35, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

Louis Persinger

Hello, Casey326, a friend of mine asked me, if I could find out how to get this. Unfortunately I can't. He told me that a copy is housed at the Library of Congress in Washington, but I even could't find the name Persinger there at all. Do you have an idea? Thank you very much in advance for your answer! Kind regards --Ralph Theo Misch 23:18, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Many thanks for your quick reply! I try to obtain a copy. (Sorry for my English) --Ralph Theo Misch 01:18, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Last night it was so late that I could't think clearly, much less say exactly what I mean. KGill wrote that Persinger's Arrangement was under copyright everywhere except the US. Yes, I know. But my friend would buy it, if it was availible somewhere. Thanks again!! --Ralph Theo Misch 09:13, 2 August 2010 (UTC)


Updated...keep you busy for a while! :)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:18, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
And I was just about to ask that it be updated! Thank you very much...


Trying to remember what of his music I've heard (the slow movement of the violin concerto on Radio Swiss Classic, but what else)... - it does look very good in score. I will try to hear more over streaming stations soon (hrm- the slow movement of sym 1 will be on Belgian radio Klara on Sunday, for starters... (searching on :) - cello sonata no. 3 on an Austrian station ( ) on the 12th, but I may not be near a computer with the right software then...) anyhow, I expect I will be soon. Thank you!

Jadassohn symphony 4

I got the year 1889 from Hofmeister, which is pretty reliable as a source of first publication dates, especially for works published around Germany. If 1888 is only an approximate publication date and 1889 is more exact, why substitute the approximate date? Eric 01:34, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Glad to. It has its problems I admit which one learns to work out/with, and it only covers 1829-1900 or so - but Google Books has some copies for a few years later. It really is rather useful I think- glad to be able to pass it on :) Eric 17:49, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

In hopes of trying to get the 1888/9 thing more right, I checked some contemporary documentation scanned in at Google Books (by looking for full-view documents that referred to Jadassohn - not the medical researcher of the same surname who also turns up, one skims over those quickly :) - in the time period 1887-1890 or so... etc.) One volume dated 1888 (The Musical yearbook of the United States, Volumes 5-7 - search for Jadassohn symphony) shows Jadassohn symphony 4 but as "volumes 5-7" implies, this might be during a 1889 or 1890 year of the book, I'll have to read it more carefully- 1888 might actually mean "1888-1890". (And it isn't in the volume 5 - if each volume is a year, then it's in 1889 or 1890.) Another volume dated 1889 by Google has an advertisement for the symphony in its back pages. Suggests without proving that 1888 was probably not it, anyway. I think works up to op.98 do get advertised as published. I also noticed awhile back a book at Google Books I think with preview - not full view - pages about premieres by the Leipzig Gewandhaus during this period. I'm sure that Jadassohn's symphonies were among them, since I think he was closely associated with them. I think I linked to it from Taubert's 4th symphony work page. Will check in a bit- have to dash... So we should be able to fill in premiere dates for syms. 1 and 3 perhaps and for many others of his orchestral works that are uploaded; will work on that later :) Eric 21:24, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Hofmeister site seems to be down, but try this... Eric 04:26, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Sortable list of works by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

Hi Casey,

you’ll find all of the available Mendelssohn works are linked by the MWV entry in the left-most column – linking works by their title as well is essentially redundant (although some of the works pages have had their titles moved about recently, the links all get to their targets via redirects). Cheers Philip Legge @ © talk 03:18, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

oh, right...

I really have to remember to do that- thank you. Eric 21:02, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
