Ravel Complete?

You mentioned a complete Ravel; does this mean that you were unable to find a score of Sheherazade?
2 other things:

  1. Have you received Carolus's package?
  2. You might want to archive your talk page soon.

Cheers-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 13:53, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

1.) I have a score to Shéhéherazade, both the overture and the vocal work, but both are under copyright in Canada and will remain so for a long time.
2.) I have received Carolus' package and am chewing my way through it. My things take first priority, however, and then his.
3.) Feel free to archive it for me if you like. Daphnis 14:24, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks and done.

Sibelius first symphony

Dear Daphnis, I can't download the Goetschius piano version of Sibelius' first symphony, which I am very interested in. Please can you tell me if you know a possibility where to get a sheet copy? Thank you in advance, sincerely yours laoula

It is currently blocked because it is under copyright in the US. For more info, see the stickied thread in the forums. Daphnis 20:44, 25 April 2010 (UTC)


You've got mail on the way. Carolus 05:40, 5 May 2010 (UTC)


Dear Daphnis,

I can't download the full score of the Suor Angelica from 'Il Trittico' by Puccini. I'm interested in the beautifull Intermezzo (for Orchestra) after scene 4, if I'm correct. Is there anyway you can help me?


no, sorry. It is currently blocked. Daphnis 22:55, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Les Troyens, H 133 (Berlioz, Hector)

Perlnerd alerted me to these – no IMSLP email notification, again, quelle surprise. I think in my exuberation I might have said "I could kiss Daphnis!", but I think you're probably safe from that with me being in the southern hemisphere...

La Prise de Troie clearly must be of rather later origin than Carthage, just by looking at the generation of typesetting. I'd be tempted to think pre-1889, which is the supposed date that both scores were (not) issued by Choudens, or that the plate number for Prise de Troie was reserved for some time later...

Anyway, I think this evening will be reserved for going through both scores with a suitable recording or two on hand! Thanks again for some lovely work.

Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 02:29, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I wish the printing were better for the second half--clearly over-inked. Any additional publication details would be most welcome. I believe with this addition we've just about exhausted everything for Berlioz that is fair game to upload. Daphnis 02:32, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Fairly close to it, though you've done the lion's share with the Malherbe and Weingartner set. It might then be time for me to look to finding some orchestral parts for the lesser pieces, and seeing if another website will be inclined to assist with other oddities. PML

I still see some of the gesamtausgabe waiting. Also, Kalmus reprinted Benvenuto, which appears to have been a similar situation with Choudens. If you could find that :)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 02:34, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

There are two volumes remaining in the OBE, 17 and 18, both of which I'm trying to acquire. Volume 18 is a series of orchestrations and editions. The full score to Benvenuto Cellini was added in two supplementary volumes of the OBE post-initial publication (Vols. 24 and 25 if memory serves). I'm trying to get those as well.Daphnis 02:36, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
The two recent uploads are volumes 22 and 23; 17 are the songs (which will fill in nicely the last ambiguities of the H.B. plate numbering); 18 are the arrangements (the Marseillaise and Invitation to the Waltz being the main items); 21 is Berlioz's version of Weber's Freischütz; 24 is Cellini; and 25 is the preface and explanatory notes to the entire series. PML

Great!-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 02:37, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I added some publication details from Hopkinson's book. The La Prise de Troie score was apparently issued by Choudens to coincide with a performance given in Paris on 15 November 1899 (Hopkinson states it was the first performance, but perhaps what he meant was the first staged performance in Paris). It was obviously sent to Breitkopf or Röder for engraving. It's general appearance is very similar to the scores of the OBE. The Les Troyens a Carthage score was issued in 1885. According to Hopkinson, there was some sort of litigation between the Berlioz estate and Choudens that dragged on until 1877, the end result of which was Choudens' publication of this score. As can be seen by looking through it, the engraving is typical French work from the latter half of the 19th century. Carolus 04:16, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
It's cited by the man himself (Berlioz's memoirs) that Choudens promised to print full scores of Cellini and Troyens, and they reneged until a decade and a half after he was in the ground. A good thing the estate eventually got it done. Prise definitely looks like the work of B&H (I don't have the same knowledge of the engraving of Röder to compare), whereas Carthage is both typical of French work of the time, and comparatively pretty shabby I have to say. Philip Legge @ © talk 07:33, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Was there a plan to (re-)issue both of these under the PLP series? I thought I’d seen it discussed on a talk page (or maybe at the forums) but can’t pin the conversation down. If so, La prise de Troie is more or less ready as is – I’m aware of a few oddities but it’s basically a fair reproduction of the first two Acts of the opera. If only I could say the same for the Choudens full score of Les Troyens à Carthage. However, if one were inclined, it would be possible to put together a slightly more comprehensive version of the score to go to print with, by supplementing some of the score (pages from the VS could appear in situ or relegated to an appendix); for the missing Chasse royale et orage it would be fairly easy to include a re-typeset based on one which I have in my possession. Philip Legge @ © talk 06:36, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

See Carolus' talk page for that one. And thanks for the well-written notes on the discussion page for Les Troyens. It certainly helps clarify a confusing publication history. I'm now interested in the possibility of us being able to justify, if we can, the availability of the 1969 NBE full score in Canada and the US. If we can, then I would probably try and contribute that as well. Daphnis 14:06, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Rosenkavalier Suite

Hi, I'm really interested in getting the score to the Rosenkavalier Suite, which is currently blocked. I understand that it is not in Public Domain in the US but it IS in Hong Kong, which is where I'll be at within a couple days. I'm wondering if there is any way that I could have a copy? Thanks! --NelsonWong 14:25, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

No, there isn't. Sorry. Daphnis 14:25, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Enescu: Symphony No.2

It has a 1965 copyright claim - with a compliant notice - by Salabert. I don't think this would be free even in Canada since it was issued while the composer was still under copyright in the country of origin (which could be France since Salabert is the copyright claimant). You are free to try and talk me out of it, of course! Carolus 03:50, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Ok then. As I understand it, France was the initial copyright claimant, but they didn't have a declared presence in the US at that time, and furthermore they transfered ownership to the Romanian government, which is how a new engraving was produced. The same situation occurred with several other Enescu pieces including the Dectet (albeit non-engraved). However, with that piece, it was reprinted by Kalmus, which isn't necessarily always a smoking gun in these cases. It was also issued in limited quantities in the composer's lifetime as facsimiles of an engraver's copy, the same copy which would eventually make it's way into zinc plates. Couple that with performances and recordings before the dated printing we have here and it should justify my marking it as V*/C*/26, as we last discussed on your talk page some months ago. Daphnis 06:26, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

OK. The performance and recording issue with respect to defining "publication" under Canadian law only pertains to works of authors dead over 50 years. In other words, it was intended to prevent copyright claims being made on a newly discovered manuscripts by Mozart (because the work in question was almost surely performed in the composer's lifetime). Enescu had not been dead 50 years when alleged publication took place, only 10. Salabert had US agents from the 1920s on. If they actually printed a score - even a copy of a manuscript - and offered it for sale or rental in 1965 with the required notice they met the requirement for publication in the USA. The difference I see between this Romanian score and the one which Kalmus reprinted is that the Romanians were careful to reproduce Salabert's 1965 copyright claim on the first page of music. Had they issued the score without a notice (as with the Decet) or with another date (which failed to include the original 1965 claim) it would have injected the work into the public domain in the USA in 1968 (It would be eligible for restoration under GATT/TRIPs, however). Carolus 16:44, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Alright then, I understand. I probably should have checked before I scanned almost 400 pages of music. Oh well... Daphnis 16:49, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

I really hate to have to block it. There's one angle that might open it up as far as US and Canadian status is concerned: an advertisement on the back page of another Salabert score that we can confirm was issued prior to 1965. Any catalog from before 1965 listing it would potentially undermine the claim of its first publication having taken place in 1965. This all has to do with the definition of "publication" established in case law in the USA and by statute in Canada. Carolus 03:07, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Well, as I mentioned before, it *was* issued as a publication earlier as a copyist's manuscript and has been available for rental before this engraving hit the market. For those reasons I thought it safe to mark it as "checked," but however you'd like to proceed. It is certainly a nice addition to have, though, and I'm planning on adding the other 2 symphonies when I get them. Daphnis 03:12, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Carolus, any final verdict on whether we can defend this piece? I believe the third symphony is also in the same (sinking?) boat as I obtained a copy today and decided against scanning it because of how miniaturized the print is and how poorly it was reduced. Daphnis 23:01, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Extension ".ly"

(sorry for my bad english....) I sometimes make scores with lilypond, a computer program for music engraving. I can make PDF files, or ".ly" files which are very little files and which everybody (who knows how to use lilypond) can change. I didn't found a website to share online the ".ly" scores I or someone else made. I will add the PDF files in IMSLP, but I want to know if it is possible to add the ".ly" files too. thanks. Sophinett 17:39, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Lilypond source files may only be attached to the PDFs from which they were generated. Using either Acrobat Professional or some other tool, attach the .ly file to the PDF and upload the PDF to IMSLP. Daphnis 17:41, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I will try to do it. Sophinett 18:02, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Massenet songs

Hi Chip, it's been almost two years since I half-finished uploading the Massenet song collection and I'm happy to report I'm back at it! I still have all of the scans you sent me on my hard drive and I should have every song published in the 8 collected volumes posted in both keys within the next few days. I will also be uploading some other Massenet scores I own and trying to get my hands on other songs and vocal works not included in the 8 published collections. Cheers! Massenetique 22:54, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Great news! Let me know if I can help fill in any gaps. Daphnis 22:59, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Hi again -- regarding the original keys for Massenet songs: in most cases it will be difficult if not impossible to know because Massenet was so popular in his time that songs were published very quickly after composition, often in a variety of keys and arrangements to please the tastes of the burgeoning bourgeoisie (I even seem to remember reading that there were songs published in as many as 5 different keys!). Additionally, those songs that were not released individually were included in collections published simultaneously in high and low keys, with no indication as to which was the original. I agree wholeheartedly that in most cases willy-nilly transposition is not acceptable; but even as much as I love Massenet, most of his songs are relatively trivial parlor entertainment and the fact that Massenet allowed and encouraged publication in numerous keys during his lifetime makes me less concerned then I might be over, say, Schubert lieder. There are some cases, the cycles for instance (Poème d'amour, Poème d'un soir, etc), where original keys are clear but in most cases I don't believe it would be documented in any source. Massenetique 04:30, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
I see. Thanks for the clarification. And as an aside, feel free to respond on your own talk page as I am watching it. Daphnis 04:46, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Contes mystiques

Hello -- I came across a PDF online today of the complete score to "Contes mystiques", which I assume you are aware of because I see you uploaded Saint-Saens' contribution to the work (Présage de la croix) some time ago. I wondered if you had an opinion as to whether the individual songs should be uploaded by composer or if it should be uploaded as a collection under "Various", or both? Let me know what you think. Thanks! Massenetique 00:06, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

If you're talking about the terrible digitization done by Google/Harvard then yes, however I made scans myself from an original. In this case, I believe it best to upload the works to individual composer and works pages, but keep in the publication notes that the respective songs are from the Contes mystiques collection. Daphnis 02:49, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I will do that. The file was actually a U Michigan/Google digitization and while it was a bit messy I cleaned it up and the quality of the scan is actually pretty good. Thanks for your help! Massenetique 05:50, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Massenet update

Hi -- just wanted to let you know that IMSLP now has available at least a vocal score for 22 of Massenet's 25 extant operas -- due largely to a great number of scans from U of Toronto that I found at -- and I have finished uploading the collected mélodies in both keys (160 songs total). Might you have access to any full scores of the orchestral suites (Scènes dramatiques and Scènes de féerie in particular)? Massenetique 00:56, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Great work. Both of those suites were reprinted by Kalmus and I believe I should be able to get my hands on them. Since I'm not familiar with much Massenet, make other requests by name (if possible) so I can have an easier time looking them up (I found those 2 easily). Daphnis 01:01, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
And can you tell me which operas we lack? We should probably try and focus on those, if they are out there. Daphnis 03:53, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
The operas we are now lacking are La grand'tante (I am pretty sure I could get my hands on this one), Cléopâtre and Amadis. Massenetique 06:26, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I can get my hands on those two vocal scores. If you can't get La grand'tante let me know and I'll give it a shot. Very nice work! Glad to see another French composer getting adequate representation here. Daphnis 14:16, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Canadian first publication rules - Enescu

OK, I've been reading (it's not a very clear or concise section of the law). Here's what I think is the case: Since Enescu died less than 50 years before the present Canadian copyright law came into force (1985), the 50-year clock started ticking the first time the piece was "performed in public or communicated to the public by telecommunication" after his death. If he had died before 1935, the only way the work would be eligible for the 50-year term would be if the piece were not "performed in public or communicated to the public by telecommunication" while the composer was alive. Carolus 01:29, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Verdict for the second symphony? Daphnis 01:59, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Ironically, we don't yet know the date of the first public performance or recording given after his death. If the piece was performed in Bucharest at a memorial concert in 1956, it's free in Canada. If it was performed, broadcast or recorded for the first time after his death in 1960, it will enter Canada's public domain on January 1. I might post a question on the MLA forum to see if anyone there might have an idea. Also, since there is a fairly high chance that the piece was actually performed, broadcast, etc. before 1960, I'm retagging Canadian status to "C". Carolus 02:03, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Ok, good idea. Thanks for checking! Daphnis 02:12, 11 July 2010 (UTC)


My public library has a good recording of this - thanks for uploading it :) Eric 14:28, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Mélodies by Debussy

Hi, Daphnis. Thank you for the wonderful Ravel and Debussy scans! I'm wondering whether you have any immediate plans for uploading some of the missing songs by Debussy? To be specific, I was looking for the mélodies put to the poems by Theodore de Banville (Souhait, Le Lilas, Reverie, etc.) Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work!--Adj boy 22:44, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but if you don't see it on the Debussy page, then it isn't fair game to be uploaded here. The songs of which you speak were only first published in 1984 as edited by James Briscoe and therefore not public domain. Daphnis 22:55, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

1984! I didn't realize there was so many works which went unpublished until so recently... Thanks for letting me know, I guess I'll try to accure it by some other means.--Adj boy 09:14, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

This is a HUGE long-term project Daphnis 03:42, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Well the list is already gigantic. Now, should we outsource this to a subpage? I thought that there was talk of merging the Peters page back in, so I'll hold off for now.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 13:17, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

It will eventually need to go on multiple pages, but I'm just trying to figure out how, if it does run onto multiple pages, to edit just one single page--it would be extremely annoying if one had to go to different pages with the plate range they need and edit every individual page. Is there a way that it can be broken up into a range of plates, but whenever edited could be done so like one continuos page? Daphnis 19:16, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Actually, editing is the problem (I'm sure you've noticed the warning). We could put the table into several collapsible tables. Or we could create a scrollbox.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 00:25, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Template:CSW and other space-saving measures

Hi Daphnis, I agree with Perlnerd that this is a fantastic bit of work. I’ve devised a new template to help with a variety of works tables, which always seem to list the composer and the work in adjacent columns, of which the Durand page is a monster example. It saves even more in terms of page length than the LinkComp and NoComp templates used up until now. You need three parameters to make it work:

  1. Composer’s first name(s)
  2. Composer’s surname
  3. Work title (up until the composer bit)
  4. Optionally, you can add some extra text to appear at the end of the link (e.g. full score, parts, piano transcription, etc).

e.g. {{CSW|Camille|Saint-Saëns|La Carnaval des Animaux|a=(full score)}} results in: Saint-Saëns || La Carnaval des Animaux (full score)
The column separators will work properly in the context of a table.
Caveats: don’t use it on a composer with weird name thingies (such as Vincent d’Indy); don’t use it for works that don’t have a page on the Wiki.
Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 08:14, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Very interesting. Thanks for your help with this. I'll try it out and see how it works. Also, keep in mind that it is very likely the Durand page will double in size (if not triple) by the time I've finished culling IMSLP for all the plate numbers floating around in space. It may be best, as Perlnerd suggests, to break this up into multiple pages once it's finished, but I'll leave that to others to determine. Daphnis 13:07, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Yep. I shaved almost a third of the page’s current size, so the saving will be useful at whatever future size it grows to! Philip Legge @ © talk 13:23, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Does the |a= portion work before a space, or must it follow the previous text? And for composer to whom I have gotten around, like d'Indy, is the preferred method of listing the "old" method? Thanks for making my life easier! Daphnis 13:35, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
It would have made the template too complicated (extra bells and whistles) to cater for d’Indy, since we actually want to display “D’Indy” despite categorising as Indy, Vincent d’. So yes, use {{LinkCompS|Vincent d'|Indy|D’Indy}} for him, and the work page link formatted separately, and all will be well!
If you want to add text immediately after the title, use “|add=” – otherwise, “|a=” is different and includes a space for you. (Dealing with spaces is hacky, since wikimedia often wants to ignore them, which can create havoc with having valid links.) Philip Legge @ © talk 14:00, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

And before I forget, I did write up the documentation, with examples, here. Sorry if it’s a bit confusing! PML

Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet

This is my first time posting on the site. The links for the Score for this dont work, is there any other way to obtain the score from you? I've looked everywhere and can't find it, either for download or sale anywhere on the internet. --Hungrytako 17:50, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Because the score is under copyright everywhere except Canada. Sorry. Daphnis 17:51, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Is it possible for a Canadian to access the score? Or is it unaccesable for everyone? Thanks, Hungrytako 18:04, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

For everyone.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 18:06, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Do you know of any other way to obtain it? I've been searching for years for this score, calling every publisher, library and person I could think of with no result. There must be somebody still selling it or lending it somwhere. I'd pay any price for it. Hungrytako 18:20, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, this was initially reprinted by Kalmus as you can see from the publication info, so it may be possible to dig up a reprint somewhere either online or from a used book/music store. The source was obviously the Prokofiev complete works edition, which probably isn't available for sale anymore. Plenty of libraries out there have this in their collections, and if you have access to some Interlibrary loan, it should be readily available there as well. Daphnis 18:31, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

What was wrong with the Rhené-Baton :)

Was that file already uploaded, or non-PD? I missed something- apologies :) Eric 15:43, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

You created another page for the work for some reason. I moved the Sibley file to the pre-existing page (with a complete score). Daphnis 15:44, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Hadn't noticed the complete score was there- ah, I see now. I didn't know the work was op. 14 until I downloaded it, and was looking for the work by the title of no. 6, which I thought was the title of the work- then when I figured things out, changed the title of the page I was creating without checking to see, etc. - yes, my mistake! Thanks. Eric 16:01, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Moeran Phantasy Quartet

You were listed as the uploader so I though you might want to know that Page 8 of the score is missing.

Thanks, I'll fix it. Daphnis 04:37, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

I apparently added the missing page in March of last year, and I just looked at the posted score. Everything is there. You might want to make sure you aren't looking at a cached copy. Daphnis 17:45, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

La chasse du Prince Arthur (Ropartz)

I noticed that the person who uploaded the original source of the Arthur scans removed them from Sibley and uploaded other ones more recently (these ) . No idea if there was a reason for this (better scans, whimsy, or anything. Just did so.) Of course, this happens once in awhile in general - hope I might point it out though. And thank you for all your help - very much appreciated - Eric 17:19, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, it was Sibley themselves who uploaded and subsequently removed the original idea why as the "reasons" aren't very enlightening. There is only one publication for this piece, which is the Durand 1913 full score. Daphnis 17:30, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Agreed- thought maybe the new entry might be a better scan, not a different publication, but I really should compare them myself before conjecturing any the least such thing of course. You're quite right- many apologies! Eric 17:34, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Either way, I don't think it makes much difference. We have a full score in good quality and the publication information is correct. Daphnis 17:36, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Satie copyrights

As of January 1 of this year, it would appear that anything of his first published more than 25 years ago (1984 and before) entered the public domain in France - the country of origin. This will not have a great effect on things here, but it might free some items to be available at IMSLP-EU, as Canada observes a type of "Rule of the Shorter Term" for works whose country of origin is not a member of NAFTA. Now the only thing covering Satie works in Canada is the 25-year rubric of Editio Princeps. The French term of life-plus-70, plus 14 years for the wars is now finished. Carolus 23:04, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Nice to know! I'll comb back through his posthumously-published pieces and see what there is before 1985. Daphnis 23:06, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Glad it can make a nice contribution. Daphnis 13:06, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Another great upload with Scènes dramatiques, thank you! If you had access to the full score of Scènes alsaciennes (Suite No.7) that would be a very welcome addition as well. Of the seven suites IMSLP now has full scores of 3, 4, and 6 -- those and the seventh are the best known (the seventh in fact probably the best of all Massenet's suites) and it would be great to have those 4 in full score. The remaining suites -- No. 1 (no title), No.2 (Scènes hongroises) and No.5 (Scènes napolitaines) would of course be great to see as well but 2 and 5 may be hard to get, the first I may be able to get my hands on. Thanks for all your hard work! Cheers, Massenetique 00:58, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Yep, that's the idea. I'll see what else I can dig up. Daphnis 01:48, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks so much for completing the uploads of Massenet suites -- you're my hero! Massenetique 06:17, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Does it have a good oboe solo, or is this a sign of further work to come?-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:00, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

A bit of both, actually. I really wanted to get my hands on Stiffelio because of a solo for English horn that has been asked on a few auditions in the past, but since Kalmus doesn't reprint this and it doesn't seem to be otherwise available, I went with Aroldo, which was a later edit of Stiffelio. As for the other part, we'll just have to wait and see. Daphnis 23:03, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:12, 21 August 2010 (UTC)


Brilliant!!!-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:48, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Étude Humoristique, Op.138 (Chaminade, Cécile)

I think that this is Not PD-EU because she d. 1944. Cheers-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:41, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

You're right, apologies. I was still in Saint-Saëns mode. Daphnis 16:43, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

No problem.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:51, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Dear Daphnis, please help me! It needs full score ballet Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet. I ask that you upload to any webhost. I will be grateful!

Sorry, can't do it. Daphnis 14:00, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
