You can use Boolean operators (+-"*<>~ etc.) to narrow
your search. Here are the some common ones:
+ or -
a leading plus or minus before any word indicates that the word must be present
a trailing asterisk acts as a wildcard
a phrase within double quotes returns results where each word must be present,
in the order given in the phrase, including punctuation
+beethoven "string quartets"
< or >
a leading lesser or greater than character will bump that word's
contribution up or down in relevance
A big example:
+beethoven +quart* >"harmonia mundi"
meaning: must have Beethoven, must have words starting with
quart, prefer the phrase harmonia mundi and prefer SACD
