Fingerprinting is a widely used technique on the web for identifying documents and information. Identifying fingerprints remains largely an arduous process. One of the areas considered insufficiently by the researchers concerns the search for musical scores. The main purpose of the method proposed in this paper is to deepen the understanding regarding the internal structure of a musical melody (musical fingerprint) and its impact on the automatic recognition of musical scores, considered in their symbolic level. The method has been verified by realizing an algorithm implemented in a Musical Score Search Engine (MSSE). Results show the identification of a musical score with a precision range close to 93%. The paper ends with a series of recommendations for enhanced implementation of automated musical score recognition system and suggestions for further researches.
