Re: Beethoven sonatas - Schnabel edition

Schnabel died in 1951, so his edition isn't PD EU yet (life +70 years), but it would be PD Canada (life + 50) provided Schnabel is the only editor.
I see we've got a couple of sonatas edited by Schnabel already (8, 17 and 19) which are labeled Non-PD US, Non-PD EU, so that makes sense.

Use of titles of (Disney) copyrighted material?

I was reviewing some old stuff of mine recently, and I stumbled upon a suite for clarinet and piano that I originally wrote in 1998 as "Winnie the Pooh suite." A sort of musical joke which was never published or performed as such. The titles of the individual movements were taken from the ...

Re: Guitar books by Bodstein, F. A

You can make a composer page for Bodstein and instead of dates for birth and death, write "flourished=1830".
That means the composer was active in that year, but other data are unknown.

Re: Nonsensical Naxos search results on pages

Couldn't the Naxos results be put at the very bottom of the work pages? Or at least remain hidden if you don't click the Performances/Recordings tab? That would be a big improvement already, yes. What we have now is the slick new page layout, with the subdued and stylish blue/grey colors being ruin...

Nonsensical Naxos search results on pages

I noticed that a lot of my pages are polluted by random Naxos search results, displayed under "Performances". For example, see http://imslp.org/wiki/6_Organ_Pieces,_Op.144_(Peters,_Rob) I wouldn't mind if they were actual search results (why, I'd love to see cd's with my music on it - one ...

Re: Sapelnikov

It's extremely simple to correct such duplicates yourself: Just edit both old and new pages and copy/paste the code containing the music (the stuff between the {{ }} brackets under "FILES") to the new page, put it below the existing code there. Then add a {{delete|reason}} note at the top ...

Re: Upcoming changes

@discophage, I think I clarified things in my reply to Gschladt. Also what Joëlle Morton wrote: the work of typesetters at IMSLP is shamefully underappreciated. A lot of skills and research goes into producing a Urtext edition. The work of a well-payed librarian whose job it is to shove old manuscri...

Re: Upcoming changes

Perhaps things would become simpler if imslp would split in 2 sites, one for each category. The CC site would have no banner, delay etc. ;-) It isn't just simpler, it's absolutely necessary, in my opinion. Like Gschladt writes, IMSLP has sailed into murky juridical waters, since the subscription mo...

Re: Upcoming changes

Coulonnus, the fact that most regular (non-contributing) users have no problem with either the 15-seconds delay or a payed subscription doesn't come as a surprise. A subscription is still dirt cheap compared to the traditional ways of acquiring sheet music, as many people in this thread have pointed...

Re: Upcoming changes

The vast majority of the content of IMSLP is/was already widely available from other sources. IMSLP itself doesn't do anything as far as unearthing old manuscripts or old editions. How about the numerous rare editions, owned by IMSLP contributors, who went through the trouble of scanning, improving...

Re: Upcoming changes

If we don't let the institutions that go through the trouble and expense of unearthing those old manuscripts make some profit out of it... nobody will unearth those old manuscripts any more and we'll all lose. That made me chuckle. If this was true - people can't be motivated to work hard to uneart...

Re: Is a continuo realization an arrangement?

I was looking at this score today: http://imslp.org/wiki/Te_Deum_in_D_major,_MWV_B_15_%28Mendelssohn,_Felix%29#IMSLP408162 and remembered this old discussion. The continuo realisation in this piece is so elaborate that I fear it should be given the legal status of an arrangement - which means the sc...

I welcome thoughtful constructive criticism from users (I've responded at some length to e-mail discussions with non-contributor users), but just saying "shame on you" or "I don't know why you need paid staff, oh and by the way, fix this problem for me" (which is doubly ironic a...
