A Unique Tool for Finding Music
KVAST collects art music by women composers written for all instrumentations: instrumental and vocal, with or without electronics, works from different eras and countries, easy or intermediate level…the choices are many.
Select a filter in one or more categories to display works that meet all those characteristics.
- Tap or click the plus symbol to the left of each piece to show additional information.
- Use the “Clear Filters” button (or refresh the page in your browser) to reset your search and start again with new filters. Sometimes our Repertoire Bank needs a fresh start to perform its best!
You can also perform a free text search, e.g. for ensemble name, composer or date. Type your search terms in the search box, found at the top right of the results list (below the filter options). A note on instrument abbreviations: We use the IMSLP system - Link to abbreviations on IMSLP. If you search for an abbreviation, every entry in the database will appear that containing that abbreviation. For example, a search for “va” (viola) yields over 900 results. To narrow the results, try applying more filters or expanding your search terms: for example, “va and pf” or “va solo.”
You can also sort your results. In the results list, click or tap the arrows next to the headers. You can sort alphabetically by title or chronologically by date, for example.
To save a copy of your results, click the “PDF” button, found below and to the right of the filter options. This generates a PDF of the currently visible results page. To print all your results, select “ALL” in the “Show Entries” box at the top left of the results list.
We warmly invite you to help us expand the Repertoire Bank by submitting new works for inclusion. We curate and catalog all of the professional compositions we receive before we add them to the public database. Use the link below to access the submission form.
