Collected Recordings of Prominent Conductors

Finding Recordings by Conductor

Finding Recordings at UO

To find recordings by a specific conductor, use the Finding Recordings at UO

To find recordings by a specific conductor, use the Advanced Search interface in LibrarySearch.  Search the name of the conductor as author/creator, select "Audio & Video" as the material type, and select "UO Libraries" or "Music Collection" as the search scope.

 

You can also search for the title of a composition.  If the composition has an opus number or other type of composer number (such as BWV for Bach or K. for Mozart), search for that as the title-- this is particularly useful for searching for works with genre- or form-based titles such as concertos and sonatas, where you might get a lot of results for things you don't want if you just search the composer and title alone.
