Ever have trouble finding contemporary music for chamber orchestra? Look no further!

New in the Conservatory Library Reference Collection
Chamber Orchestra and Ensemble Repertoire: A Catalog of Modern Music is the latest title in Scarecrow's new Music Finder series, modeled after David Daniels' Orchestral Music: A Handbook. In Chamber Orchestra and Ensemble Repertoire, Dirk Meyer provides conductors, musicians, and librarians with all the information needed to plan their performances of modern chamber music. Meyer lists almost 4,000 works written during the 20th and 21st centuries, representing more than 1,100 composers. Entries are divided into three categories: Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Ensemble.
