  1. Solo & Chamber Music
    My choir is performing three Bach Cantatas (106, 161, 182) with orchestra and I am on the hunt for orchestral scores that may be in the public domain (as we cannot afford purchasing them). The ones found at are insufficient and at times have errors; similarly for Can...

    Hi all, I hope this isn't an inappropriate topic for this particular forum... :o Is the IMSLP site down for any U.S.A. users here? I haven't been able to bring the site up in my browser for over a month now. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

    Greetings, Short: I'm trying to find a score for Franz Liszt's Six Hungarian Rhapsodies for single piano, four hands (duet). The Searle catalog number is S.621. I'm looking for score to purchase and annotate in the long term, but I would also like a score to use temporarily (library, online...
  4. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    I have spent the last five and a half years studying silent movies, and recently created two "needle-drop" type scores for two of them. I know how critical forums are so I am not really looking for "constructive feedback" per se. I realize there are some problems with the scores, and so I know...

    The Open Music Library was just launched with over 200,000 free music scores from over six national libraries. They include original manuscripts from canonical composers as well as contemporary works. Some examples: Richard Wagner (1813-1883) Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) Aaron Copland...
  6. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    I'll post something I posted elsewhere on a forum. Since I wrote them I guess they are owned by me: "Just saw it and I thought it was awesome. Breathtaking theater experience.....the music was simply the best I've seen live in a long time. It was a soundtrack, it really brought out was...
  7. Today's Composers
    I am thinking of releasing e-books of my scores. Do you think people are interested in this format? Do people prefer hard copy scores? Is it a generation thing? What I mean do people read music on ipads, tablets and smart phones?

    I'm interested in what others think of this Stravinsky work. I've just recently become acquainted with it, and, although it is certainly worth hearing, it doesn't sound among his best scores to me. Some parts of it sound very atypical, actually. Is the prevailing attitude that it is a lesser work?
  9. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    What are some of the very first fully orchestrated film scores? I'd be very interested to see a historical perspective of the evolving and diverging styles of film composition and orchestration in the 20th century. My knowledge is lacking here.
  10. Orchestral Music
    Hello all, Due to a backed-up shipment, I am in desperate need of finding a score of an orchestral arrangement of Rachmaninoff's Prelude in G minor, op. 23 no. 5, as soon as possible. There is one by Rubbra and one by Caillet; either will do. PLEASE let me know if you have access to either of...

    Does anyone know where I could find an online copy of the extensive notes Olivier Messiaen wrote about this piece? Apparently they are included in the score but I have not been able to find these anywhere. I have looked at several copies of the score and found no notes, but I'm told that he...
  12. Music Theory
    I would like to get into the scores and theory of Feldman's scores. Anything that I should know or research?
