Our music librarian's favourite method for searching for particular pieces is to retrieve a list of all the music by a the specific composer and written for the specific instrument. You can then identify which books look like they might contain the piece and check their contents. You can then recognize the name of the piece whether it is the opus number, title, musicological catalogue number, etc. To try this:
- Go to the catalogue's advanced search and enter the composer's name and the instrument into the first search box.
- In the Type drop down menu select "Musical Score".
- Type the composer's name in the search box.
There are also some online resources to find musical scores. To find these and more information about the Library's Music collection check out the Music Subject Guide http://libguides.kpu.ca/music.
