musiconn.scoresearch is a program for finding melodies in selected digitized printed music. The application was developed at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and is based on Optical Music Recognition (OMR).
Currently you can search for exact or transposed tone sequences in the works of the following composers:

Also searchable are episodes 1 and 2 of the series "Denkmäler deutscher Tonkunst" ("Monuments of German Musical Art"):

as well as part of the copyright-free total collections of the printed production archive from the Historical Archive of the music publisher B. Schott's Söhne, Mainz (Mus.Schott.Ha).
