Composer Links


Here are a number of links to sources you may use to locate information on your favorite composer. This is not an exhaustive list, we've started with composers we have performed over the years. Right now, there may only be a name and dates, some names lead to an "official" page for the composer.

Almost all composers have these standardized links:

  • Google
  • The International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP)
  • Wikipedia, and
  • WorldCat

These four basic sources provide you with a list of web sites, scores, encyclopedic information, and library resources respectively for each composer.

As always, consider your sources. Where possible, we've added links to Societies, Associations, Journals... anything available of a more reliable and scholarly nature. And we might find a site that's fun, cool, or a bit odd, too.

Here are a few other sources that may provide information on a composer of interest. Several sites provide music in the Public Domain:

You'll find links for each composer at the bottom of our Program Notes pages as well, so you can read about the piece we perform, then follow the links and find out even more. We hope you will investigate and learn as much as you can on the lives and works of these great masters.
