Music

Pierre Arvay's instrumental music is mainly reserved for the library music industry, which circulates the music to cinema, television, radio, etc. Some of this music was, moreover, originally only available on professional audio media and was therefore not recorded on disc. Nowadays it is exclusively available in a digital format.

More than 450 titles are presented here, mostly distributed by De Wolfe Music or by Kapagama.
