Musicweb International Resources

This brings together all (we hope) of the many and varied resources created over the years on Musicweb in an organised way that makes them easier to access, and hopefully allows readers to find material that they didn't even know existed.

While the overriding focus is on the resources we have created, including those which link to external sites, for example the Orchestra and Online Music pages, we have decided to include links to some external sites which we consider to be very important classical music resources. These are indicated with the symbol , and clicking on these links will open up a new window.

It should be noted that the links below do not cover resources that are specific to an individual composer. They also do not include one-off articles on an isolated topic - these can be found by searching the What's New page.

Online Books & Reference Works
These are major resources exclusively available on MWI, and include some previously published books that are no longer available in hardcopy.
