Re: Authorship of 'Vanhal' symphonies Opp. 23 & 25

Hi Peedur, You might be interested to see some of the RISM entries for these individual symphonies which also exist in manuscript form. I did incipit searches of only the first movements of most of them - I'm sure there would be more to see if you searched every movement. It looks like Op.23 was als...

Here is a screenshot of Boccherini Op.1, violin 2 part. The file also displays sideways with the ad.

Re: Advertisements

Yes, I also get that one. I am also with firefox. Maybe one in 6 downloads has an advertisement - there seemed to be more yesterday. I realised jsut now that if you scroll down using the scroll bar on the far right, you can bury it under the tabs at the top of the page, out of sight.

Is IMSLP putting these ads for the university of Thessaloniki at the top of files? I don't have a problem with the ads being there to begin with, but once I've read them and decided I am not interested in their topic, I'd like to get rid of them. Is there a way to do that? They are in the way when t...

Re: Exile

A few ideas(probably you already thought about them) : Bartók, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Martinů, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Hindemith. Does fleeing your homeland for fear of persecution count as exile? Probably some of those would fall into that category rather than forced exile. There are some early on...

Re: Upcoming changes

I waited a few months to see if the public uproar would get the Petrucci LLC admins to back off.


The admins had nothing to do with these changes.

Re: Upcoming changes

This is not something I knew about either. I couldn't find information about the Board of Managers anywhere on the site. Could someone point me to the relevant information? I'd like to know when the Board of Managers was founded and who is on the Board.

Re: Upcoming changes

I believe this category of scans should be accessible without the 15-s delay.


Even if the 15 second delay was removed, these scans attract many potential donors to the site don't they? I think one could argue that they are still being used for monetary gain.

Re: Request to add in Sub Musical Genres (or styles) in Time Period

I think Rococo is the same as Galante - Late baroque introducing classical elements.

I think it's a good system, I just wasn't sure how that one problem would be solved. Probably with lots of discussion do you think?

Re: Request to add in Sub Musical Genres (or styles) in Time Period

:? I feel like I've missed a few vital points here, so I have a few questions. Am I right in thinking that these new categories will be applied to individual work pages and NOT to composer pages? If so, will there be a way of "batch editing" the works of 99% of composers whose style remain...

Re: Request to add in Sub Musical Genres (or styles) in Time Period

Other late baroque styles could be "Galante" and "Empfindsamer Stil", or would these be covered by "Rococo"?. I see them as quite opposite movements with Galante being simplification of the Baroque style in preparation for the classical. The Empfindsamer style I see as ...

"Scores and Parts"

Perhaps this has been discussed already - please forgive me if it has. Would it be a good idea to add the option "Scores and Parts" to the "Add Sheet Music" pop-up box? At the moment there is only Scores, Parts, Arrangements and Transcriptions, and Other to choose from. I would o...

Re: Any problems with the EU server?

Hmm. I'll use this post to ask again; Are there problams with the server? I haven't been able to get any page to load today, even when I select specific work pages from my browsing history. After a while I get a notice saying that the site could be unavailable and to try again later. All other websi...

Re: cleaning scores that have lots of small stains

Hi Coulonnus, thank you for your reply. I will have a play with it and post my results here if I make success. I am mostly interested in manuscripts, which at first appear to be messy, but with a little manipulation with basic tools (I use "preview" on a mac) can be quite ligible and one c...
