Re: Composers own arrangement of an opera excerpt

This would normally go on the opera's workpage, unless, for example, the composer had set a different text to the music to make it a completely different work

Re: Marguérite douleureuse au rouet (no. 2),Op.26 (Zabel, Albert) ‎

Different titles, different opus numbers, so no need for the confusing "(No. 2)" in the page title, even if it appears in the score. I've moved it to ""Marguérite douleureuse au rouet, Op.26 (Zabel, Albert)"

Re: Title page for reprint of Tchaikovsky's "Vakula the Smith"

Thanks Lyle, this would be a very welcome addition to IMSLP. In answer to your question, I'm not sure but it might be safest just to omit Kalmus's cover and title page, and include the publication details in the description of the file, noting that this is a Kalmus reprint. The Cyrillic title could ...

Re: Failed to correct instrumentation

If you're unsure about the tagging system it's better just to mention the problem on the work's talk page, because you caused a system error with your changes. I've fixed it for you now.

Re: Language issue for 4 Romances, Op.41 (Rimsky-Korsakov)

Hi Zeyar. I'm not the admin who edited your page, but the correct procedure was followed in this case. That's because the original texts and first publication of these songs (1897) was in Russian only, and it's IMSLP's policy to translate all Russian titles into English. We do this because most of o...

Re: Policy query, and complaint

Hello Philip. I'm no longer leading the tagging team (and had no involvement with editing the pages you mentioned), but there are a couple of things to consider here. Firstly, there are an awful lot of work pages where the uploaders of works, or subsequent editors, have not given the original instru...
