I have been in contact with IMSLP for some time regarding a collaboration between them and us and from now, sheet music linked from Piano Society will be hosted by IMSLP instead of being located locally. Sheet music is the core business for IMSLP as recordings are for us and the cooperation will be of great benefit for both of us.

On http://imlsp.org, there will be a possibility to link to our recordings and a suggestion to do so will be available. So whenever you submit a recording, make sure to link it from IMSLP too.

The cooperation has not really started yet but I will asap begin to re-link the scores and they will provide the possibility to link to our recordings.

Good job indeed!

One thing though: Does anybody know if IMSLP accepts scores created by users (generated by Lilypond, Finale etc.)? The thing is, I've begun making a Lilypond score of the Balakirev Mazurka I've recorded.

How come IMSLP does not make any headlines about the merging? That's just a sign of disrespect :wink:

I believe they are just slower than I am. I have sent them our logotype and they will make it possible to link to recordings from Piano Society within a short time. When we are there, I or any editor can go there and link to our recordings, pianists, composer page or whereever we like and make a lot advertising for Piano Society for free.

But if they by some reason will never do this, backing to host the sheets locally is as easy as going into each genre and make "undo" on the last change. About 1000 page edits, I know but I will do it if they do not stick to their promise.

If you check on IMSLP.org and any composer that we have recordings for, there is a headline saying: "Recordings: Piano Society" which links to that specific recording. That what Internet is about, give and get, share and receive.

Now it is time to create an account at Wikipedia and do the same ;).

I am not sure if you have read what has happened to IMSLP.org (go to their site) but I will let you know that I have offered my help. I hope Feldmahler respond soon and that we can cooperate on some way. I would just hate to see this wonderful project closed down forever.

Such a shame! It's always been a fine sheet music database...

That is horrible. Really horrible. Did he get a Cease and Desist order because there was something up that wasn't in the public domain? I thought they checked all of those things. :(
