Cello Resources: Printed Music

Resources for cello performance, research, and repertoire

How do I find cello music?

If you have a specific piece in mind, you can search by title, author (person/organization/composer), or both on MaagNET. Below are general call number ranges for cello music. You can browse the shelves or you can consult MaagNET for a listing of materials by call number. To search by call number on MaagNET, select LC Call Number and enter the beginning of a call number, ex. M249.

*Some of the recommended call numbers below contain music that does not include the cello. For those, consider limiting the results to "words in subject" = "cello" or "words in subject" = "violoncello."

The current term used by the Library of Congress is "violoncello."
