To facilitate remote teaching and learning in music, the Wilson Music Library has licensed Classical Scores Library, an online database of Western art music scores featuring works from the Middle Ages through the 21st century. Currently numbering 53,000 individual works, Classical Scores Library features editions from a variety of publishers, including Universal, Faber, Boosey & Hawkes, Peters, and A-R. Classical Scores Library has a mobile-friendly interface, making it easy to work with scores on tablets.
If you're looking for new repertoire to perform, it is often helpful to browse the Music Library's scores. The following call number ranges are for oboe music; individual works within these numbers are arranged alphabetically by composer or arranger:
M65-M69, oboe alone M245-M247, oboe and piano M1022, oboe with orchestra (full score) M1023, oboe with orchestra (piano reduction) M1122, oboe with string orchestra (full score) M1123, oboe with string orchestra (piano reduction)
Bibliographies compile lists of materials by topic. The Music Library owns several bibliographies of woodwind music that can help you to find repertoire by composer, difficulty level, and instrumentation (this is particularly helpful for finding chamber music for mixed instrumentation like woodwind quintet).
