Classical Music Library

Members, log in for full details

Classical Music Library is a fully searchable classical music resource--a comprehensive database of distinguished classical recordings. It includes tens of thousands of licensed recordings that users can listen to over the Internet. The audio selections are cross-referenced to a database of supplementary reference information. Users browse, search, click, and then listen to the music through their headphones. The music moves from Medieval to contemporary, from choral works to symphonies, operas, and the avant-garde. We've licensed multiple versions of works to enable comparative listening by students--a major bonus for academics. Users can listen and learn at any time from any computer, while simultaneously searching and browsing the reference database. If your library subscribes to online reference works such as Grove's and Wilson's, Classical Music Library will link to them as well. Unlike other resources on the Web, Classical Music Library is the only audio service that is developed exclusively with the needs of librarians in mind. It's a dedicated library resource offering music licensed from major labels, built on a musically authoritative database that is structured around works and performances rather than CDs, giving users a much more powerful interface for searching and browsing the music.
