Hi Perlnerd666. I think this is a situation where it's best to use the better known English title. Most forms of multimedia use Abegg Variations, Op.1 so that is naturally the title most people will know the piece as. Wikipedia, which usually represents the common-people, uses the English title Variations on the name "Abegg". I think you might have been using the Breitkopf & Härtel score as your source, but keep in mind it doesn't always represent the best choice. Is there another reason that you redirected the page that isn't occurring to me now? Respectfully, Emery 22:33, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
- I'm going to agree based on Diabelli and Goldberg variations. I checked with Grove's first, too, of course (decided that the French was a little weird). I'll move it back. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:36, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd666. I'm just wondering if you happen to find a source for death dates for M.M. Sumerling. If not, I think it might be best to tag the file as V/V/C since we don't know when the author died. During that time period, it was not uncommon for authors to arrange works in their early 20's. Since we have the 80-year lifespan rule, I don't think it's unreasonable to be on the safe side. I also happen to run across a few files you've tagged as V/V/C due to the Rule of the Shorter Term. For example, the works of Paul Bliss. I think he was an American born composer, lived in America throughout his life, and published his works in America. You are a much more experienced reviewer than me, so I'm just wondering how it applies? Respectfully, Emery 20:37, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
- I actually made a mistake with retagging one of them. The first one I retagged should not have been RoST; I somehow assumed the second work's text was also written by the composer, but it was not. Because of the librettist, it should absolutely be V/V/C. Respectfully, Emery 22:56, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
I tend to apply RoST for works published in America first, or publications made in America that are PD when the work or publication is not in the EU otherwise.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 02:04, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
- Hi Perlnerd666. That's part of the definition of the Rule of the Shorter Term, so I'm glad you tend to apply RoST ;) I was actually conflating two different errors and thought that you thought the works published by Paul Bliss were RoST, even though he is public domain in the EU. Respectfully, Emery 02:29, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
I see—sorry for the unitentional over-pedantic tone. :P Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 02:37, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
Public Domain (Details)
Hi Perlnerd666. I'm working with Carolus to create a more expanded and detailed page for US copyright law. See Carolus's talk page for more details. Here is the work in progress. I'd like to have your ideas and suggestions. Respectfully, Emery 21:26, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
- I saw it. You two have substantially more expertise than I each on this subject, so I'll try to limit my contributions to copyediting. EDIT: I'll just ransack my book of statutes for quotes :). Sincerely,-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 21:27, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Chopin Scholtz edition
Hi Perlnerd666, We appear to still need the following works to complete the edition: Variations on "Là ci darem la mano" (Op.2), Grande fantaisie sur des airs polonais (Op.13), and Krakowiak (Op.14). I've exhausted my sources so hopefully piupianissimo will post them. --Cypressdome 01:48, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 01:57, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
- Und I did!!! -- Piupianissimo 22:05, 1 August 2011 (CET) (P.S. Tarantella, Op.43 is missing - it will follow soon! -- done)
Wonderful! Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 21:40, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Works Made for Hire
Hi Perlnerd666. I'm just wondering why you took away the section "Works Made for Hire"? It is listed in the duration of copyright section to talk about the length of protection, but there are many more details that cannot be explained in that section. Respectfully, Emery 04:22, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
- Understood; I'll put it back. Sorry-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 04:23, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Dear Perlnerd666, are you still there? Maybe it's a First Edition. At least I couldn't find any printed versions. My source was this. I hope everything is correct (musically and juridically). Regards --Ralph Theo Misch 23:19, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
- I can't find any printed editions either, so I'm going to assume that yours is the first. Nice work-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:48, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks and Cheers! --Ralph Theo Misch 23:51, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd666. Would you like to become an official member of the project? Your revisions to the US copyright page have been very helpful so far. Respectfully, Emery 04:18, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
- I noticed and have accepted. Again, I fully expect to do mostly proofreading work—I only have US copyright texts. I'll try my best. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 04:19, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Still room for taggers?
I'm looking to get more involved in IMSLP, but given that I don't have access to a warehouse full of unscanned public domain scores, I was wondering if there was any room left on the categorization project. --Jemiller226 14:57, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
- Contact P.Davydov, the project leader. Regards-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:53, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd! Just wanted to give you a belated thanks for the Breitkopf Award. I guess I don't stop by my own user page that often as it's been there for over two weeks! I've reached the works for piano and orchestra in the Chopin Breitkopf edition which is about 300 pages to process. I wasn't able to salvage HathiTrust's copy of volume 6 (Preludes) as there were too many missing pages. Here's hoping piupianissimo can work his magic and make them appear in due course. Thanks again! --Cypressdome 03:00, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
- You're very welcome—wonderful work!-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 03:25, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Poème by Chausson incomplete
Hi, user Trebor33 (registered here at the wiki as well as at the IMSLP forums) asked me to submit the following message on his behalf (he is not familiar with editing the wiki):
Ayant téléchargé le matériel du Poème de Chausson, je viens de m'apercevoir qu'il manque des partitions. Il s'agit des parties de trompettes, des trombones, des tubas et des timbales. Ces parties ne sont pas présentes dans la liste des parties disponibles sur IMSLP.
Serait-il possible de pouvoir les ajouter au matériel d'orchestre de ce poème? Je fais partie de l'orchestre philharmonique de la RATP et nous voulons jouer cette oeuvre au mois de mars 2012.
J'espère que vous aurez pu récupérer les parties manquantes pour cette période.
Dans l'impossibilité,je devrais faire appel à des associations symphoniques qui possèderaient ces parties.
Avec tous mes remerciements et mes sincères salutations.

- C'est très étrange que cettes partitions manquent. La source où j'ai acquit les partitions est "OMCDRL"—je suis sur que j'ai téléchargé toutes les parititions sur le serveur. Peut-être OMCDRL a oublié cettes partitions. Je suis désolé, mais je ne peux pas vous aider, parce que je n'ai pas accès à une source pour cettes partitions.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 00:14, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
||This excellent composer...Died of a foot infection.
Hope you enjoy this totally random fact!
Here's a random fact with a picture to go along with it!
Enjoy! By the way....You're an Organist...I wonder if you would like some of my organ music.

Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet (2nd suite)
"This piece is still under copyright in the US, so we cannot allow the download of these files, as that is where the majority of IMSLP's traffic comes from. Sorry! We can direct you to publishers who could sell you the parts, perhaps."
Would you mind? I'd like to acquire the score and/or parts legally.
- Boosey and Hawkes' website——should have them. Cheers-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 03:57, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
Concerto for Violin and Cello, Op.102 (Brahms, Johannes)
User Trebor33 contacted me again as he noticed that parts for Trumpet 1, 2 (in D) of the work in subject show the same pages repeated twice. I think he is right. I may remove the duplicated pages and upload the corrected files, however I wanted to check it with you first. Max a.k.a. Choralia 14:42, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
- Go ahead. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 23:35, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
- Done. Choralia 13:15, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd, I just noticed that you tagged some of these files as V*/78*/V*. As per IMSLP:Copyright Reviewers#Verified vs. Checked (a guideline established over the summer at Max's request), the Canadian tag for urtext editions with an editor who died less than 50 years ago should be C*, since it really isn't 'official' whether they are not protected in that country. Since these were published in 1982 - between 25 and 30 years ago - the EU tag should also be C* as the maximum permitted term of copyright for urtext editions is set at 30 years (although no member states currently enforce it at this length, they could change their statutes at any time and it's best to be on the safe side). Finally, recall that starting in 1978, US law is now life+70 rather than pub. date+95, so the death date of the editor is taken into account. Based on this I've changed your tags to C*/66/C*. Thanks, KGill talk email 19:11, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for the correction. I'll keep that in mind.-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:10, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd666. The Canada draft for our copyright project is now finished, and I was wondering if you think it looks OK. Any comments or improvements you have are appreciated very much. Respectfully yours, Emery 22:18, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
- Any of my information on the subject is rather secondary, but I'll try to proofread it at least. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 01:45, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Perlnerd666. Thanks for working on this. I just want to maybe suggest that we should do a little bit of research into the more obscure countries on the Wikipedia copyright chart - for some reason they aren't all completely accurate. What do you think about changing the continent "Australia" to the region "Oceania"? If we do that, we can include all of the small islands around Australia that aren't really part of the Australian continent. Respectfully yours, Emery 03:18, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
- Agreement on Australia, and I'll make sure to be careful on those. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 03:23, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
