 Department of Music : University of Vermont
Studying music at the University of Vermont is about pulling back layers of the structure of music, to discover why generations in every civilization have always considered music one of the most important arts.
Music has been a component of campus life since the founding of the University in 1791.
The Music Department has been an academic unit at the University for over 80 years, leading students to learn the past and form the future, singing and playing, listening and composing.

 Seanad Éireann - Volume 148 - 16 October, 1996 - Music Industry: Motion.
Given the potential richness of the music industry, the wonder is not so much that we now address ourselves to the focused initiatives that might usefully be undertaken to assist the industry but rather why it has taken so long for the message to take hold.
The extension of the BES to the music industry has been correctly interpreted as recognition by the Government of the increasing value of the cultural and creative sectors and their potential in terms of employment creation, value added and generation of wealth.
The main reason is that the music industry is an extremely high risk area and despite our major success stories which quite rightly receive the bulk of media attention, the fact remains that it is still extremely difficult for new and emerging talent to secure adequate investment.

 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
He showed musical gifts at a very early age, composing when he was five and when he was six playing before the Bavarian elector and the Austrian empress.
In these years, too, he wrote six string quartets which he dedicated to the master of the form, Haydn: they are marked not only by their variety of expression but by their complex textures, conceived as four-part discourse, with the musical ideas linked to this freshly integrated treatment of the medium.
The last Prague journey was for the premiere of La clemenza di Tito (1791), a traditional serious opera written for coronation celebrations, but composed with a finesse and economy characteristic of Mozart's late music.

Enter at least the name of the musical form/genre (in plural) combined with performance medium (e.g., "concertos violincello" or "sonatas piano").
One way to narrow the results is by consulting the composer work lists found at the end of biographical entries in the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians in order to find opus (work) numbers or keys that may be used in a uniform title.
Music catalogers follow recognized, standard form/genre title names or distinctive title names when adding uniform titles to a catalog record of an individual item or composition, but need to use so-called collective title names to represent publications containing multiple works, such as collections.

In circa 1759 he was appointed music director to Count Morzin; but he soon moved, into service as Vice-Kapellmeister with one of the leading Hungarian families, the Esterházys, becoming full Kapellmeister on Werner's death in 1766.
In his early years Haydn chiefly wrote instrumental music, including symphonies and other pieces for the twice-weekly concerts and the prince's "Tafelmusik," and works for the instrument played by the prince, the baryton (a kind of viol), for which he composed circa 125 trios in ten years.
It was part of Haydn's job to prepare the music, adapting or arranging it for the voices of the resident singers.
