i just wanna show my support to imslp. i can't thank you enough for giving us all here a chance to enjoy beautiful music.
i'm a student from indonesia. it's quite hard to find music scores here. even if you ever find some, they cost a great amount of money. when i found imslp, i went ecstatic. apparently, my teacher and i were sort of arranging materials for exam. after like hours of random search, i found Godowsky's Java Suite here. i hesitated at first, but anyway i tried to give them to my teacher just for an alternative. She was veeeery surprised. It turned out that my teacher had been looking for it all these years but never found it. she said, "how is it possible?" it was a rare piece of music. i mentioned about your site, and she still couldn't believe it. later, she chose Wayang Purwa for me to play for the exam. i couldn't have chosen a much better one than this.
it turned out great. i just passed my exam now, quite amazed that i could have a chance to play such beautiful piece,that has rich influence of my country's own cultural heritage. i couldn't have done it without imslp. thank you so much. it affects me this much, i think there are many more out there who feels the same way. i really hope that imslp will continue. you have my support.
