  • What about using @misc. It takes author, title and year as fields. – Guido Jan 23 '15 at 21:04

    This depends on your citation style guide. If you use the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, you can cite published musical compositions the same as a book. (But then you should use biblatex-chicago). The composer is the author, and the other fields would be the same. For an unpublished composition, treat it like a dissertation or other unpublished manuscript. – musarithmia Jan 23 '15 at 21:20

    biblatex has (unsupported) entry types for musical recordings: @audio and @music, wiche are formatted by default as @misc. – Bernard Jan 23 '15 at 22:19

Because you gave not more information one can only guess which document class, or bibliography style you use, if you call biblatex or not etc.

The following bib entry works for standard bibtex:

  author  = {Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus},
  title   = {Sinfonie g-Moll},
  year    = {1773},
  address = {Salzburg},
  note    = {New K{\"o}chelverzeichnis Nr. 183, old version Nr. 25; 
             Erster Satz: Allegro con brio, Zweiter Satz: Andante, 
             Dritter Satz: Menuetto, Vierter Satz: Allegro},

It gives the data of Mozarts Sinfonie g-Moll. It was endet in year 1773, has the number 183 in the new Köchelverzeichnis, number 25 in the old version.

Depending on your used style and/or program bibtex or biber you have to rework it.

With standard bibtex you get as result:
