Works for chamber ensembles of two or more players; except works for solo instrument and piano.

Guide to the Catalogue of Chamber Works
Works are presented alphabetically by:
1. first instrument listed in title
2. title of work
Note:
Instruments of different ranges in the same family, are listed in the following manner:
1. trombone
2. trombone (bass)
3. trombone (tenor)

PRESENTATION OF TITLES

Because instrumentation is used to organize the catalogues of instrumental and chamber works, titles including full instrumentation are used only:
1. to clarify works of a similar title (e.g. sonatas and trios)
   2. to indicate original instrumentation when a work is listed using its alternative scoring

MISCELLANEOUS

Unless otherwise noted, "harp" indicates pedal (or concert) harp
When harp is cited as an alternative to the piano, it is always listed as a chamber work. When piano is used to substitute for the harp, it is listed as an instrumental work.
