Sophomore Music Literature List

Click on any red text to listen to that piece. The audio will play in the player at the bottom of the window. For best performance, use the latest version of Chrome or Firefox.

You may also download all Sophomore files in MP3 format as one ZIP file (file size: 861 MB). These files will show the composer and track titles when played on your device.

Scores of most of these can be found online at IMSLP. Search there via composition or composer. Remember that some things might be listed under a foreign title (e.g., Le Sacre du Printemps for The Rite of Spring).

Scores may be found, also, by searching the CUNY library search engine. Advanced search, with minimal information entered, is usually the best way to use this engine. The library staff will, of course, be willing and able to provide help should you require it.
