User talk:Ivdruiz

Hello Ivdruiz, Thanks very much for all of your lovely work on the Handel page and for the additions of scores from the BSB. We really appreciate them. For titles, we recommend you follow the format of the works listing at this website. Handel went from Germany to Italy to England, so the titles of his works are in all three languages, plus a little Latin and others besides. Chrysander's edition, as it was published in Germany, tends to put all the titles in German, which is especially inaccurate in cases like the Coronation Anthems, HWV 258-261, composed for the English King, George II (though I suppose one could argue that German isn't so far off in that case since George II, like Handel himself, was originally from Germany!). Thanks, Carolus 00:02, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Hi Invruiz, Thanks for all of these Brahms first editions you are posting. Outstanding work - and a very fine addition to IMSLP! Carolus 14:06, 12 October 2008 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

I would like to second the above - thank you for your magnificent efforts, the Brahms page is now very close to being complete! I think it is well worth mentioning on the "Featured Scores" section of the main page. Aldona 18:35, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


Where are the parts?

If you go through all this effort, why don't you scan the individual parts? The scores are only of intellectual use. With 22,000 scores, I find it frustrating to find so little use of this enormous enterprise. I am assuming you are associated with the Brahms Institute.

Piattidozen 17:19, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Hi Piattidozen, sorry but I'm not associated with the Brahms Institute, and I don't have the individual parts, you can go to the Brahms Institut and you can try to find the parts that you need.

Ivdruiz 00:43, 15 November 2008

Corelli, Op.1

Ivdruiz, We already have a page for the Op.1 sonatas. Please add any new items to the existing page instead of creating a new duplicate page. Thanks, Carolus 16:04, 26 December 2008 (EST) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Brahms Institut

Hi Ivdruiz, many times I tried to upload whole scores from the Brahms Institute - without success. I only get particular pages and the only way to save them seems to be the screenshot. Am I too stupid, or do I have to buy them? (As you surely have recognized, I don't speak English at a native level - I'm from Germany). Regards from Ralph Theo Misch, 03:07 (MEZ), July, 24, 2009

Hi Ralph, In the Brahms Institute they don't have whole scores, you have to download page per page. Here at IMSLP you can download the complete scores List of compositions Best regards from Ivdruiz, I hope have been useful 01:08, 29 July 2009

Hello Ivdruiz, thank you for your reply! That's what I wanted to know. Best wishes - Ralph Theo Misch 01:08 (MEZ), August 1, 2009

Just one last thanks

You have the second most complete works under your belt of any user (of course Daphnis destroys everyone in those contests). And the two composers - wow. Just thanks again.-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 18:55, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Many thanks :) Snailey for me it's a great pleasure to collaborate in this great project. 01:18, 15 August 2009

Glad to see you back at it! What is the extent of the Beethoven-Haus collection?-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 13:32, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Snailey, The Beethoven-Haus they have the first editions of almost the complete works. Best Regards. 18:03, 13 November 2009

Excellent...thanks again!-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 17:29, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Poke. Let's see some masses, an die ferne geliebte, sonatas, concerti, and, and...! :D-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 02:04, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Snailey, Sorry, I've been a little busy. I hope to upload more very soon. 14:10, 24 December 2009 (GMT+1)

That's great Snailey, I will use it. 20:48, 16 November 2009


Hi Ivdruiz. Thank you for your scans of the Beethoven manuscripts, but would it be possible to split sets like Op.12 and Op.31 into their constituent sonatas, so that they can go on the correct pages? — P.davydov 16:00, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi P.davydov, Can I to put in the notes the page number of every sonata.? 17:15, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes, you could include the same file on each of the work pages, with notes showing the range of pages in the file for that particular work. Do you need any help doing that, or are you OK? — P.davydov 16:32, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Is this project finished?? All 294 pages have first that everything? Thanks so much! (And for the Schumann, which you'll see tomorow :)-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 22:27, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi Snailey, Yes I have completed all the scores available at Beethoven-haus. Great idea :) for Schumann, I have completed all the scores Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Robert Schumann’s Birth. 17:03, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

So now we have many complete works and the the Mendelssohn incomplete works...thanks a lot!-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 17:31, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Mendelssohn also it's completed :) 20:17, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Also a thought: BSB has finished the Beethoven...two different editions of the complete works! That would be awesome-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:21, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Dear Snailey, It would be fantastic. Tomorrow I'll start this new project :). Best Regards. -- 0:17, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Your Vivaldi uploads

67 MB!? Please, can you split them before uploading such large files? I will be happy to assist you if you need my help. ClassicalComposers 23:34, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear ClassicalComposers, At this time, I can't to split it, If you can to do it, I would be very grateful. 13:02, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ivdruiz, many thanks for your uploads. I agree with CC, while I may personally prefer to deal with one huge download rather than lots of fiddly little files, that is the exception rather than the rule for a lot of users. I wouldn't go too far to the other extreme though; it ought to be possible to do a split and merge on the two files for Vivaldi Opus 3 to get 8 files of approx. 15 MB each for the eight instruments (although I suppose the violino primo/secondo parts might be rather heftier). There's a useful free, open-source program called PDF Split and Merge that I find invaluable. Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 00:47, 9 January 2010 (UTC) (IMSLP copyright team)

Palestrina: Libri Missarum Motettorumque

Brilliant!! --Ralph Theo Misch 23:58, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :), 1:01, 10 February 2010 (UTC)


Fantastic!! Don't forget to update the Gesamtausgabe's page.-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 15:57, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Snailey, The Complete Works of Palestrina already it's finished :). Now I will update the Gesamtausgabe's page. 17:25, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi Ivdruiz,
thanks for a huge amount of work. As you’ve noticed I’ve gradually been going through these to document exactly what’s in the Haberl edition; I’ve just noticed one problem with one of the supplement volumes which is missing pages. I imagine there may be others, as for some of the volumes I haven’t throroughly inspected the contents when other library sources or indexes have listed what should be there; e.g. the masses are very well documented, so for some of these I simply put up the contents without downloading the volume. Regards, Philip Legge @ © talk 23:13, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi Philip, It's a shame we hope to find soon the missing pages. 0:28, 15 February 2010 (UTC)


Hi Ivdruiz,
I've found the Polish libraries while searching for my beloved MADRIGALI SPIRITUALI by Palestrina via Maybe you'll find further hot stuff (eg. Musica Sacra) there. Congratulations for Palestina again! --Ralph Theo Misch 02:00, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ralph In the Staatsbibliothek I have found to Cipriano de Rore, Desprez, Lasso, Obrecht, Willaert, etc :). At Lodz they have the complete works of Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Palestrina, 5 Volumes of Rameau and some works of Chopin. Best Regards. 13:54, 15 February 2010 (UTC)


Hello Ivdruiz,
have you already seen this: [1] ? - Regards from --Ralph Theo Misch 23:35, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Ralph, Yes I have seen The Complete Works of Franz Schubert at BSB, but still it's not completed.
I have seen at Google The first Volume of Musica Divina.
You are doing a great work with this collection :). Best Regards. 16:34, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

I've only found the "Selectus novus missarum" scanned by Google. I'll have a closer look on the quality of that scan of the first volume - then I'll decide, if I should confine myself scanning the part books. Pressing the old books unto the scanner is nearly a "barbarity" ;-)
Thanks a lot for your tip! --Ralph Theo Misch 02:07, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


Hi Ivdruiz,
[2]: This page will open officially on may 18. but is already available! Best wishes --Ralph Theo Misch 00:05, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Many thanks Ralph for the information :) Best Regards. 23:39, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Dear Christoph, Bach Digital does not allow downloading the works it's protected by FLASH, it's a shame. -- 0:26, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Dear Ivdruiz, yes, the DFG-Viewer doesn't work. Generoso seems to be the only one who had success ([3]). I consider to ask Mr. Uwe Wolf from the Bach-Archiv. He introduced my colleagues and me into that project, some monthes ago. --Ralph Theo Misch 23:36, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

ULB Darmstadt - Graupner

Great!!! --Ralph Theo Misch 01:03, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Really nice! But wouldn't it be better to give the link of the persistent URL (e.g. for Gib Gott dass ich nach deinem Willen) instead of just linking to the main ULB page? --BoccaccioTalk Email 06:41, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
There are over 300 manuscripts, is a great project for the 250th anniversary of Graupner’s death in 2010. :) Ivdruiz 14:49, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Schumann Gesamtausgabe

Hello and thanks for the wonderful scans you have contributed of the Schumann Gesamtausgabe - all Schumann lovers owe you a great debt, I'm sure! I'd like to point out though that the 3 Lieder für 3 Frauenstimmen, Op.114 is missing numbers 2 & 3 - any chance you could upload these to make it complete? Also it would be nice to have the full scores of the Violin Concerto and Violin Sonata No. 3 - I believe these were published more than 50 years ago now. Best wishes, John

Thanks John. :)
The 3 Lieder für 3 Frauenstimmen, Op.114 already is uploaded.
Sorry but I don't have the full scores of the Violin Concerto and Violin Sonata No. 3. Best Regards. 21:07, 1 May 2010 (UTC)


Thanks a lot for these! Remember to use the "{{BSB}}" template.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 14:36, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Ok Snailey, I'll use it :). The Complete Works of Schubert now are available at BSB. 16:41, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Great! Thanks again-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 14:42, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you from me too - it is very satisfying to see the collection become more complete. Aldona 22:31, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

You're Welcome Aldona, for me it's a pleasure collaborate :). -- 0:37, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and ivdruiz, you've missed F.S. 89-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:38, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Snailey Now I'll put it :) Thanks for the information. -- 0:42 2 August 2010 (UTC)

The Schubert "Complete Works" are now complete! We must celebrate in some way!! Aldona 22:09, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

It would be great Aldona Celebrate it :) -- 00:15, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

@Aldona. Featured Score coming up :)-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:23, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, in the work page "Hymne an den Unendlichen, D232(Op.112 No.3)(Franz Schubert)" things are confused a little: File # 73609 is the work, not an arrangement or transcription. File # 73463 belongs to file # 73392 "Hymnus an den heiligen Geist, D948(Op.154)", and is its first version. I added some information from the German edition of the Deutsch catalog but do not dare to do more. --Molinarius 09:14, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

I've moved some things around...take a look. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 15:02, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
Good work! :) --Ivdruiz 23:05, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Beethoven cello sonatas

Hi, I noticed that you uploaded the first editions from the Beethoven haus. I'd like to try to resize them (like what piupianissimo does) so that they're printable. Any chance you still have the raw images somewhere? Or alternately do you know of any way to mass-download the images? How did you do it? Thanks, Andrewt 04:20, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Andrewt, The image quality at Beethoven-haus is not very high. You can try it with the Breitkopf & Härtel Edition. Best Regards. -- 12:27, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
I know the image quality isn't very good, and that's why I want to improve it. I tried a little bit last night with a test image and I was able to get almost print-quality. The Breitkopf edition is fine as it is (I've already printed them out); I'd really like to have a printed copy of the first edition. Let me know if you still have the files. Thanks, Andrewt 14:58, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Andrewt if you want I can typesetting the Score in Sibelius -- 16:39, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the generous offer lvdruiz, but I don't necessarily need a new typeset (unless you really want to), I'd just like to have the first edition--I really enjoy playing from first editions. What I'm trying to do is use Irfanview to increase the resolution of those scans so that it looks good when printed. I tried converting one of the pages and I think I might be able to do a satisfactory job. What I'm wondering is if you have the original JPEG's from the Beethoven haus somewhere on your hard drive, so that I don't have to download them all, or if you know of a method to mass-download the files (maybe like something you did when you first uploaded them). Thanks for your assistance, Andrewt 16:31, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

How Can I to send you the JPEG's -- 17:38, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Are you registered on the forum? I could send you a private message with my email address. Andrewt 16:47, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes I am registered my user name is the same Ivdruiz. -- 17:55, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I can't seem to find your profile... maybe you could link to it? Andrewt

I have send you a private message or in the board index you can look down to the users there I am. -- 18:16, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Snailey, If you want to get the images, you have to go to DFG Viewer. :) 10:05, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant how can I download the images-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 03:29, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome :). 14:06, 2 October 2010 (UTC)


I noticed that G.F. Händels "Passion nach dem Evangelisten Johannes" is misplaced under Georg Böhm's works. Thnx for keeping up your good work. --ViF 13:51, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

There was a note at the bottom of the page stating that this work is now believed to have been composed by Böhm, rather than by Handel. I've moved this to a more prominent position at the top of the page — P.davydov 17:59, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
