New Content Added to Classical Music Library

Alexander Street Press has announced the addition of 2,000 recordings to the Classical Music Library. From a recent press release:
This release of content contains 2,000 new tracks from the CBC label (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), Haenssler, and Mode Records. We’ve added many new contemporary works to our growing database of classical tracks. Highlights from these recordings include chamber music by Anton Webern, works for tape by Iannis Xenakis, chamber music by Hilda Paredes and Morton Feldman, percussion works by John Luther Adams, works for strings by Lou Harrison, and piano works by John Cage, Giacinto Scelsi, and George Crumb.

Other additions include vocal and choral works, such as Schubert’s oratorio Lazarus (D. 689), Rossini’s Petite Messe solennelle, Poulenc’s Quatre motets pour un temps de pènitence, and Brahms lieder sung by Ingeborg Danz.
The Classical Music Library now contains over 50,000 recordings with more additions in the works. CML is one of over 100 databases available to UM students, faculty, and staff.
