Online Resources for Chamber Music

I have been so excited this week to discover several amazing resources for downloadable sheet music and audio files of chamber music:

The Petrucci Music Library:  "Our goal is to create a virtual library containing all public domain music scores, as well as scores from composers who are willing to share their music with the world without charge."

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum:  "In our music library, you'll find free classical music sorted by performer and composer, featuring performances recorded live in the museum's Tapestry Room as part of our ongoing concert series. Click on a composer or performer's name to view their bio and a list of musical works available for download."  (containing a more limited selection than the previous two, but still a good resource)

Further, in my search for like-minded classical musicians in the area, I found ACMP - The Chamber Music Network (originally the Amateur Chamber Music Players).  This organization "facilitates informal playing and singing by people of all ages and nationalities, beginners to professionals."  Their website also contains various links to resources for chamber musicians.

Even if you are not a musician yourself, you will enjoy visiting these sites and downloading free classical music for your listening pleasure!
