Music searches succeed best when you use authorized names and terms. Classical music titles appear in Finnish databases with the title of the source (Mozart: Concerto for piano and orchestra A major K 488) and the uniform title of the same (Konsertot, piano, orkesteri, KV488, A-duuri). The rule of thumb: search with name of composer and opus number or catalogue number without punctuation or space (op81 ; KV488 ; BWV21). The names of composers are also authorized: see the list Hankalat musiikkinimet (= Difficult music names). Lists of uniform titles of some essential composers are found under title "Säveltäjien teosluetteloita kirjastojen tapaan".
In this guide you will find information resources of fine arts, performing arts, music and media. Tips on information seeking are also provided.
