Wow, I didn't know that MMO was still going. I can remember handling the vinyl LPs for MMO when I worked in a library 1975-6.

Subject: [OT] help about some questions
Hi lilypond friends,
I'd like to create an orchestral midi collection, for playing piano concertos with a MIDI accompaniment.
The first difficulty is transcribing orchestral scores, then, I wonder if someone could suggest me a pdf2midi or pdf2score app or online service that could help; at this moment I'd be interested in Prokofiev Piano Concerto n. 1 and Beethoven Piano Concerto n. 3; I tried the online service of MuseScore but I got a 'score not compatible' message (I'm using the imslp.org score)
Second difficulty will be getting an interactive mode about playing midi orchestral score, even without thinking to a 'follow me' mode, listening to audio solo part (I think it'd be very difficult to implement), I thought I could create and additional track, with just a few notes to play, and then finding a way to concatenate other midi events to those special notes, to get a synchronous mode with solo part (played by human) and midi orchestral part; even in this case (I'm not a such good code programmer) I have no idea if it could be possible and how.
I'm a pianist and piano teacher, this kind of solution could improve very much the teaching level and the final piano and orchestra exam; indeed, it could be a development idea, creating a web site to offer this service
Hoping this idea could be interesting for someone, I wait for your help or even thoughts
