New wonders at IMSLP, as found tonight - yippee!

Amongst other delights, run, don't walk, to snap up more Enescu scores including the 2nd SQ, the Piano Quintet, the Dixtuor, the Impressions d'enfance and, at last, the 3rd Violin Sonata  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Maciek will be happy to see a few Zarebski scores putting in an appearance.

There's been a big influx of Satie pieces including, wondrously, the manuscript of Spprts et divertissements - for those who haven't seen it, it is one of the wonders of musical calligraphy, like Cage's score amongst other.

One happy score-seeker....

Thanks for the heads up! And right you are - I'm downloading those Zarebski scores as I write this! I only had a Polonaise and the breathtaking Berceuse until know (never got to buying the Quintet score while it was still cheap... :().

Les Roses et les ├ępines op.13? Wow, that's supposed to be Zarebski's masterpiece - the cycle that is the reason for the comparisons to Debussy. Here's a chance to find out... :D

Thanks again, Luke!

...and this one:

http://www.bh2000.net/score/

has a good collection of works by the bigger names - lots of Mozart and Beethoven chamber music, complete piano music of Schubert, Schumann, Brahms etc (I mean complete, down to unfinished works, fragments etc), most of the orchestral work of Tchaikovsky (including the more obscure symphonic poems - though not Fatum - the Suites, Manfred, all three Piano Concerti and so on) and much more too.

Thanks for the link, btw, Maciek. I've seen that site before, but not for a while - at least, I don't remember there being so much there.  :o  Another fantastic resource. I've just found, to my delight, the sheet music of the piano sonata and preludes by Pasternak - yes, that Pasternak. I've had a CD of them for years, but the scores have eluded me till now! :)

so there's no way of being able to keep track of recent additions beyond the list they have on the front page? (besides looking through tons of composers over and over again)

The best way to keep track is to ask Luke for regular updates. He seems to be keeping the entire contents list of that site in his head. ;)

lol!

Ok, Luke (when you read this), just tell me what's new. You know what I like, right? Okay.... these are some of the scores I'm looking for:

Bartok- Concerto for Orchestra (the rest of it!)
Anything by Prokofiev, Schoenberg, Webern, Berg, Shostakovich or Stravinsky
Respighi- Fountains of Rome (orchestrated)
R.Strauss- any tone poem for orchestra
Mahler- sym 2, 7, or 10 (orchestral scores) 10 might be copyright, though

and that's all i can think of for now

Don Juan is on the site Maciek linked to earlier...Macbeth is somewhere around on the net, though I can't remember where I got it from...

Alternatively, come round my house and we can make copies of most of these pieces (I don't think an 8000 mile round trip is too far for Mahler 10, do you?). I don't have much Prokofiev, but I have plenty/all of the others you mention. ;D

Don't know about you, but when I read those copyright notices on IMSLP, I can't resist an instinctive shudder when I read the phrase 'except in....where the term is life + 50 years.' Always seems a rather extreme prison sentence for this particular crime at first...until I turn my brain on!  ;D

My brain isn't on...can you explain to me why it's not extreme?

yeah, that'd be sad to see a corpse that's been dead for 50 years in a prison cell

"what did that guy do to deserve THAT?"

"he downloaded sheet music that wasn't in public domain from the internet".

They do have a few on IMSLP - just check, not all of them are reductions. E.g.: Also sprach Zarathustra and Macbeth. Perhaps that's about all... ::)

BTW, it's about time you changed the title of this thread to something like "where to download specific scores" or "new scores available for download on old sites" ;).

Oh, and BTW (how many posts in a row does it take to make one look utterly stupid?), I once asked about Smetana piano pieces - there's a bunch of them on IMSLP now, I've found them finally. So here's a new question: does anyone know a place where I can get (download) the Kempff transcription of Bach's Siciliano/Sicilienne (from the Flute Sonata IRRC)?

i just checked- thanks for pointing those out! Also Sprach Zarathustra was just added June 19, 9 days ago. I checked before and didn't see it. They do have Macbeth, too, but also Salome. The others are just piano reductions. Hopefully they'll get the complete scores to Don Juan and Death and Transfiguration.

BTW, it's about time you changed the title of this thread to something like "where to download specific scores" or "new scores available for download on old sites" ;).
is it possible to change it from the "beginning"? (make it display that when you see the thread names listed)

And this might be a good place to thank you for the link to that amazing Russian site with all those Schnittke and Shostakovich downloads! Thanks a bunch - that place is a gold mine. They have some Kancheli, Taktashvili, and even a piece by Takemitsu! I wonder what I'll find next!
there was another place with another piece by Takemitsu, also a Russian site. The piece they had was Voice, for flute. It's cool because it's a solo flute piece with speaking, multiphonics, bends, etc. I'll try to find it if i can.

You have to modify the first post - change its title.
