Re: Problems with the French translation of the "General Information" headings

Page "imlsppage" contains said headings, but I do not see any way to edit the entries Under "Interface Messages (Default)". Is editing reserved to administrators?

Problems with the French translation of the "General Information" headings

Several entries in the French equivalent of "General Information" (Informations générales) about a given work at the bottom of a page are in need of revision or translation. Here are a few examples: Nombre d'opus/de catalogue --> Numéro d'opus/de catalogue An/date de composition --> Année/...

Re: Upcoming changes

I can only side with the comments made by many, if not most, posters. It is very sad that, without any prior announcement, discussion, disclosure of financial statements and needs, etc., the founder of IMSLP has decided to turn this indispensable documentary resource into what it has never been mean...

Suggestion: Addition of a category for "Works dedicated to [name]"

The box entitled "General Information" at the bottom of each page devoted to a work usually provides the names of the dedicatees. There is also a listing of categories that make it possible to see a given work appear as part of a list (librettist, piece style, etc.). I was wondering whethe...

Corrections needed in the French-language copyright warning

The copyright warning at the top of pages in French, which begins with "Il est très peu probable que cette œuvre soit du public domain dans l'Union Européenne" needs some corrections. The two instances of "public domain" should read "domaine public" (even the link is to...

Opening a file in IE8 sometimes disables the page

I have begun to experience a strange problem lately with IE8 on Windows XP SP3. The steps to reproduce the problem are: Ctrl-click on the title of a work to open the contents in a new window. Click on the six-figure number (#xxxxxx). Click on Date/Time to open the file; the file opens in Acrobat (ra...

Sorry, I cannot remember which link caused the problem, which seems to have disappeared. I have not encountered it since I wrote this post.

IMLSP and cross-site scripting (XSS)

For the second time in two days, Internet Explorer 8 (on Windows XP SP3) has displayed at the top of my window a security message about cross-site scripting (XSS) when I clicked on a link to IMLSP in a Google results page: "Internet Explorer has modified this page to help prevent cross-site scr...

Gaetano Donizetti, L'assedio di Calais

It would be nice if someone could scan and post the vocal score of L'assedio di Calais (1836), a melodramma lirico by Gaetano Donizetti, or at least the duet "La speme un dolce palpito". This Ricordi score seems to be very rare; one copy is in the collection of the Library of Congress. Tha...

Re: Full set of Amédée Méreaux's "Grandes études pour piano"

As the one who started this thread, I can only offer my warmest thanks for posting this massive set of etudes, which are quite a wonderful example of how virtuosity can be pushed to extremes (irrespective of musical value).

Full set of Amédée Méreaux's "Grandes études pour piano"

It would be nice it someone could scan and post the full set of the very rare Grandes études pour piano en soixante caprices caractéristiques dans le style libre et dans le style sévère , op. 63 (1855), by Jean-Amédée Le Froid de Méreaux (1802-1874). It seems that not even the Bibliothèque nationale...

Typing imslp in Google should lead to IMSLP/Petrucci Music

Every time I type "imslp" in Google and click on the four-leaf clover, I reach a plain page beginning with "The IMSLP has reopened! Read the IMSLP reopening open letter here". Wouldn't it be more appropriate if http://imslp.org/wiki/Main_Page , which is where most people, I think...

I am much saddened by Universal Edition's behaviour in this matter. IMSLP was a fantastic project that really answered a pressing need. I sincerely hope that it will be resurrected as soon as possible in one way or another.
