Discovered new free sheet music site
on: December 26, 2003, 10:20:35 AM
https://notes.tarakanov.net

If you can understand a little bit of Russian, this site is great.  It has LOTS of free stuff.  Most of the files are zipped with .Tif files inside.  There's classical, movie themes and even jazz.  Russia is so cool!

Very nice, only requires basic knowledge of Cyrillic.

Yes.  That's the beauty of it.

Then again, many people don't know Cyrillic. A quick alphabet-table I salvaged from Google:
https://www.friends-partners.org/oldfriends/language/russian-alphabet.html
It's fairly comprehensible, if you know what you're looking for, but it's impossible (for me at least) to browse.
What do you need to read .TIF files anyway?

For the new pianists on the forum, well-known sheet music archives in English include:
https://www.sheetmusicarchive.net/
https://icking-music-archive.org/
And one I myself found:
https://www.ibiblio.org/pub/multimedia/music-scores/freemusic/

Hurrah! I'm a full member now!!! And I just got lots of experience in embedded hyperlinks too.

First, you need winzip to access the archive you download.  Then all you need is some picture viewer, most versions of windows have one built in.
