Re: CPDL vs IMSLP

The idea of merging has been explored in the past, and I think the main problem was that CPDL hosts its contents under a copyright license (GNU GPL) that IMSLP doesn't have. Another consideration is that the two websites support different kinds of files, and the overall structure is really quite dif...

Re: Worldcat is citing IMSLP - yay?

I think this is good news. I've always suspected that IMSLP would eventually become an authority on music. We are becoming so expansive that serious musicological research can be done here. Right now IMSLP is mostly used for finding scores, but I don't see why it can't be so much more. I'm working o...

Re: Nocturne v. Notturno

I'm not really suggesting to make a new category for notturnos, but the 18th century notturno is really signifigantly closer to the "serenade" genre than the 19th century "Nocturne" genre. It's unforunate that the terms are so similar but reflect entirely different genres.

May be true, although I assure you that the genres are very different things.

Re: Nocturne v. Notturno

This may be true, although we have deviated from MLA before. And I'm not sure that MLA decision is the most well considered; they really are not the same thing.

Nocturne v. Notturno

We currently label the 18th century 'notturnos' as 'nocturnes', but they are not typically the same genre. The notturno is much closer to a serenade (and the terms were often used interchangeably in the 18th century), while the term "nocturne" as first used by John Field and later by Chopi...

Re: IMSLP & IAML

If the conference next year is in New York, I suspect that some IMSLP representatives (including myself) would like to go. IMSLP is really shaping the way people think of music categorization and copyright around the world.
