Breitkopf & Härtels Orchester-Bibliothek

Please note that this list is manually updated, and may not contain IMSLP's complete collection.

This is an individual page to list the publication(s) under the name of Breitkopf u. Härtels Orchester-Bibliothek (or Partitur-Bibliothek).
NOTE: basically speaking, OB numbers are for orchestral parts, while PB are for scores/study scores only.

In most circumstances given number for a program under these two series will be IDENTICAL. That is, with Beethoven's Fourth Symphony assigned OB 4332 in the Orchester-Bibliothek, it will be PB 4332 in the Partitur-Bibliothek, accordingly. With this case, PB 4332 will be omitted in this page. For exceptions like Frühlingsstimmen-Walzer by Joh. Strauss, OB (2757) and PB (3287) numbers will be arranged seperately.

Orch.B. part numbers and Part.B. score numbers often—in fact, usually—do not match for a given publication.
