Tips for successful searching
For a specific work, search a combination of composer + work title in the keyword search box.
Include work numbers for works that have a generic title (e.g. symphony, concerto, sonata, etc.).
Musical works are generally listed in the original language of the composer. For example, Mozart’s Magic Flute is listed under Die Zauberflöte and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, or Le Sacre du Printemps, is listed under the transliterated Russian title Vesna sviashchennaia.
Examine the full library record of a recording, including the contents.
Call numbers for sound recordings at CMU are in order of acquisition; therefore, browsing by call number in the online catalog will not produce useful results.
