12 Effectively intractable questions Which scribes have created manuscripts of a composers works, and which other composers works have they inscribed? Which poets have had their poems set to music by Schubert, which of these musical settings were only published posthumously, and where can I find recordings of them? Which electroacoustic works were published within five years of their premier?
13 Generating Metadata: Grove Works Lists
14 Our Tool for the Works Lists
15 Immyns Example
16 Initial testing and evaluation took place during April-May 2009 Integration: All the information showed up very quickly, and it was easy to find material. It was really good to have different kinds of material in the same place. Changing search paradigm: I would recommend musicSpace for its ability to manipulate queries in order to get results that you wouldnt otherwise be able to get [without starting over]. Granularity: I used musicSpace to explore how many operas have a character named Alceste. This information simply isnt get-at-able using other search interfaces – youd have to sort through the information by hand.
