Alexander Street Press announced that their Classical Scores Library is now complete at over 400,00 pages. On February 11, 2011, Classical Scores Library was updated with 66 scores and 999 pages .
As of this update there are 24,368 scores and 400,088 pages in Classical Scores Library.

The final release includes material from Universal Edition, A-R Editions, and Wirripang. New scores include material from composers Girolamo Frescobaldi, Antonio Vivaldi, Diana Blom, Adriano Banchieri, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Colin Brumby, and more.

Classical Scores Library contains classical scores from both in-copyright and public domain editions. The major composers output is represented, as well as many lesser known composers and works.

Content in the database includes in-copyright material from Boosey and Hawkes and selected material from the University Music Editions microfilm series.

The collection includes works spanning time periods from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Coverage of score types is comprehensive, with full scores, study scores, piano and vocal scores, and piano reductions.

The database has been indexed to enable users to search on musically relevant fields, such as composer, work/opus number, key, genre, instrument, time period; as well as score-specific fields, such as score type, duration, editor, arranger, publisher. We hope that this will enable users to search, analyze, and research scores in a simple but powerful manner.
