Works in the CIM Robinson Music Library A - O

This list has been compiled in response to violin students who have frequently asked for help finding specific repertoire for competitions. The searches have often been for solo violin pieces that were composed after 1950, and frequently there has been a duration specified.  Listed here are works that are found in the CIM Robinson Music Library Collection. Durations are, of course approximate, and have been obtained either from the cataloging record or from recordings. We hope this saves you a little time.
