Classical music composers archive
Welcome to Musicalics, the classical music composers archive. Here you can find information about more than 26 thousand composers and over 700 thousand compositions. There is also a large collection of geographical places connected to composers or classical music: the MusicAtlas.
Use the search form above to find what you are looking for.
This website is a combination of the Classical Composers Database (www.classical-composers.org; now disabled) and the extensive composers and compositions archive of Jean-Paul Giraudet, who compiled that in over 50 years. I am thankful to him that he allowed me to use that information here. I am also thankful to Ed Tervooren, who allowed me to publish his collection of MusicAtlas places.
