85,000 Classical Music Scores (and Free MP3s) on the Web

IMSLP-5th-Anniversary-Banner-cropped

Worth a quick mention: The New York Times ran a story yesterday profiling the International Music Score Library Project, a crowdsourced web site that indexes classical music scores (though not without raising some copyright concerns along the way). IMSL hosts 85,000 scores with several thousand new ones coming online every month. You can find Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 – in short, the major ones along with the minor ones. And, in some cases, the archive includes audio recordings. Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker offers an example. You can find a full list of free audio recordings (arranged by composer) here.

    I was affiliated a piano teacher with the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association for two years but I had no money to pay a music repetoire to teach with. Professor Robert Greenberg’s Great Courses of Music I was able to buy from Chantilly, Virginia to help graduate myself further with the Royal Conservatory of Music cost me so much and any grand piano and house to teach in and the bills for it and my son and an accident he had and I had I ask you please send me 80,000 Classical Music scores to examine to complete 450 piano works I have composed needing correcting and performance again. had many piano performance prizes, any five year piano performance contract with the National Arts Council former Director Robert Daigneault, and have had 30 years of being a multimedium artist sponsored by Canada Council for the Arts any grant money insignificant to exhuibit me with other artists sponsored in over 500 exhibitions. Having your free music scores will complete more than 450 score works I have stored in my home. Please grant me the 80,000 Classical Music Scores for Professor Greenberg and The Great Courses do not have them. Thank you very much. Daphne Molson
