loan of scores

The sheet music library contains in principle all published and unpublished works of its members. In the reading and listening Room, open Monday, Thuesday, Thursday (9 am - 5 pm) and on Friday (9 am - 3 pm), every score, gramophone or tape-recording from the library may be consulted. Single copies may only be studied on the spot. CeBeDeM has the disposal of 2.400 orchestral performance materials available by rental on behalf of the composer concerned.

Library copies may never be used for public or broadcast performances. In case of commercially published works, people are referred directly to the publisher. Concerning works of CeBeDeM's published repertory, artists are kindly invited to buy commercial copies (chamber music and orchestral score) or to hire the orchestral material.
