New Resource: Naxos Works Database


Naxos Works Database includes brief biographies of over 4,000 composers and information about 67,000 works (mostly orchestral and chamber, but there’s quite a wide range covered). This will be particularly helpful for fact-checking dates of composition, writing program notes, checking approximate durations, and even helping plan programs. You can search many aspects of a piece, including instrumentation, duration, date of composition, composer’s country, and genre. So the next time you need to find a 5-10 minute German piece written in the 18th century that features mandolin, look no further than Naxos Works Database!
