OK! Norbert


Dear Mr. Hoffmann, I need to tag your piece Bieromanie for our new system, so that it comes up under searches that people might be doing.

You uploaded it as a sextet, but it looks to me like the percussion parts won't be done by one person, although I am not a percussionist myself. If I'm reading it correctly, the first movement would be:

  • Percussion I: woodblocks
  • Percussion II: kleine Trommel, 3 Tomtom, Grosse Trommel
  • Percussion III: 3 kleine Becken, grosses Becken

Do I have this right? (Steltz)

Dear Mr. Steltz,
thank you for your interest.
In the first performance (october 16, 2005) we had one very advanced percussionist. In the first movement, the percussionist uses two different sticks at the same time; since the movement ist slow, it is possible to play the rhythms with one hand. But it could be difficult to change the sticks while playing - two or more percussionists will solve this problem.
I think the number of percussionists should be the decision of the performers. In case of 3 percussionists, your dividing of the percussion part is correct.


Dear Mr Hoffmann. Just to let you know that we are systematically "tagging" all the works on IMSLP over a period of months, which will place your works in the appropriate categories (such as "Scores featuring the guitar"). In the meantime it is not necessary for you to manually include your works in the new categories (in fact this can have undesirable consequences, and is actively discouraged). Please rest assured that all your works will be included in the new system, which will not be fully operational until the spring — P.davydov 21:42, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
