Piano Music Database

Browse Our Collections

Collections are hierarchical categories of piano music. Every entry is organized into a collection type, which has parent-child relationships or connections to other collection types. Each collection is described in detail below and you can use the links to start a quick search within each collection type.

Works

Works are individual pieces of piano music that are composed as either stand alone pieces or separate movements of larger pieces called Sets. In terms of hierarchy, Works are often a child of sets, compilations or methods. When visiting a Work entry, you’ll see links to its parent Set, Compilation, or Method, if those relationships exist.
