Music students, researchers, and historians now have an exceptional opportunity to access more than 95,000 pages of the world's greatest musical scores with this microfiche collection.

Musicache contains more than 1,000 scores covering 300 years of classical music history. These are the original Eulenburg editions from the publishing house of Breithoff & Hartel, publishers of all of Beethoven's original works. They span music history and evolution from the Baroque period through the era of the Romantic composition.

Composers include all the great names in music between 1600 and 1900--Bach, Beethoven, Bizet, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Dvorak, Elgar, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Liszt, MacDowell, Mozart, Paganini, Rachmaninoff, Rimsky-Korsakov, Smetana, Strauss, Sullivan, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, and Wagner.

Musicologists will find this collection invaluable for a study of different composition techniques as well as for a comparison of styles during the same period and through the centuries.

The cross-indexed directory of contents, which is included with the collection, makes it easy to locate works by musical category, author, title, or vocal/instrumental reference.
