Re: Historical regions used as nationalities

This is a good question. I guess there is some value in referring to people's "nationality" as they would have referred to it themselves at the time they lived. For example, we can talk about Roman or Byzantine Emperors, without having to clarify that actually what was then Roman Empire is...

Re-tagging "piano" works as "harpsichord"

Hi,

I was thinking perhaps it would be a good idea to re-tag and re-categorise all piano pieces as harpsichord pieces, because the piano descended from the harpsichord and so they're basically the same?

Re: Finnish Library Access!

I can't delete / edit this topic, but as this is no longer valid and four years on I keep receiving emails (!) with requests to scan stuff, I'd like to just put a note out that this is no longer the case, and I can no longer scan stuff from those libraries. :)

Folk music: Structure changes to accommodate wider range of submissions?

I have a simple (yet sophisticated :) ) topic for discussion - should there be a series of structural changes in the website to accommodate and welcome a wider range of submissions other than classical, and if so, what would be the best way to approach this? I am well aware that, technically, it is ...

Finnish Library Access!

Hey everyone! This is an offer, not a request :) I am now studying again in Helsinki, so I have access to a few libraries here in Finland. If anyone can find a score through the links below that they think will be worth scanning for IMSLP, just send me an e-mail (prits.kaka, at gmail.com) with the d...

Re: [FEAT] New time period for living composers?

I agree that being able to select a date-range would be far more useful and meaningful, and I think it wouldn't even take too much of an effort in terms of changing the system right now. And about tags, I also agree. It would be great to see something like that, but I guess that would take a much bi...

[FEAT] New time period for living composers?

When it comes to the Time Periods, though IMSLP has borrowed the date usage and terms from Wikipedia up until the 20th century, IMSLP strangely stops doing so when it comes to the 20th Century and uses an arbitrary distinction between "Early 20th Century" (1900-1945) and "Modern"...

[FEAT] Social network integration?

I was thinking, with an increase of living composers present on IMSLP it might be useful to add some social network integration, so people interested in a composer's work can get in touch with them, find out events/performances/recordings/videos. I would imagine it wouldn't be too hard in terms of c...

Re: Are Erwin Schulhoff's works public domain?

cool guys, thanks a lot! :) seems like I have to wait a few more years before I upload them, but it's ok, I'm in no hurry :) also, I have a Schott 1993 edition of some of his other works, where it is mentioned the work was performed first by Schulhoff himself - would that count as a public performan...

Are Erwin Schulhoff's works public domain?

Hi, I was wondering if Erwin Schulhoff's (1894-1942) works are in public domain. I have an edition by Ries & Erler, Berlin (1991) of some of his works and I was wondering - if I typeset them myself and I released the typesets under a CC license, would it be legal to upload them to places such as...

Kantele categorised as "zither"?

Hey guys! I was just going through some stuff of mine and I noticed that a piece I had uploaded, for kantele and violin, had been put under the "zither" categories (e.g. "for zither, violin" or "scores featuring the zither" etc). In the broader sense of the word, a kant...

Re: Where is the source of happiness?

I believe that happiness is a state of mind, not some tropical paradise that if we strive hard enough we can arrive and have a pina colada and dance topless while singing hallelujah with angels (or whatever the idea of paradise is these days..) To me, happiness is being content. Happiness comes from...

Thanks.

As the end of 2011 is approaching, I couldn't help but notice how much IMSLP has grown and flourished over the last years. I remember when I first joined IMSLP in 2006, the rate of uploads was something like 100 new uploads a month. And we were very very happy if we could keep it up. Now, it is some...

Re: Main Page graphic re-design

The only thing I'd like to see is a better search engine - how much more would I rather be able to search for a composer's name, a composition's instrumentation, a recording's performers, or for arrangements for two pianos bearing the keywords in question. I remember the old IMSLP search was appalli...
