How to find music scores

Music scores from the UvA collection can be found in the UvA catalogue thus:

  • Select Advanced Search
  • In the format filter bottom right select Sheet music
  • In the search window on top select an appropriate search key and enter your search term.

If you wish to search by composer, use search key Author.

If you are looking for music for a particular instrument, use the search key Words from title. Note language variations:
piano OR klavier.

If you are looking for a specific combination of instruments, use Words from title, and be aware of language variations, search e.g.
“string quartet?” OR “quatuor? a cordes” OR streichquartet?

The question mark is added to search both for string quartet and string quartets, etc.
