Rimsky-Korsakov's "Servilia" -- p-v score -- advice

Postby Lyle Neff » Sat Feb 11, 2017 1:33 am

This is not a request for a score, but a request for how best to supply a score.

As of today I noticed that the piano-vocal score of Rimsky-Korsakov's opera "Servilia" has not yet been uploaded to IMSLP (except for Servilia's aria).

I own a copy of the hard-bound Soviet edition of the p-v score, as well as the Kalmus reprint. The hard-bound edition is a bit more fragile and yellowed, of course.

Assuming that no one else currently is scanning this p-v score to upload to IMSLP, which of these two prints should I scan? I assume that I should omit the editorial prefaces from the scans.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

If you want you could send them to me to scan it for free! I have a great big scanner (can scan up to 600 dpi), I just bought recently that I can do large format scanning. If you live in the USA, you could send them to me via media mail. I can PM you my address.

As for which one to put up, having both prints would be nice to have!

As you can see from the considerable number of things he's added, Sam definitely knows his way around a scanner. I've sent him things from my own collection, and things arrive back in good shape. Those older Soviet prints often have very acidic and brittle paper, so great care must be taken.

I can scan either of the prints myself using scanning machines available to the public in the library where I work (i.e., during my breaks, of course, especially on days when it's raining/snowing or too cold outside).

I just want to know which print I should spend the time scanning.

The original would be the most valuable, rather than the Kalmus one.
