Is the word "songs" properly used in the following?

By the 1700s, European glass harp masters could play songs by Mozart and Beethoven on the instruments.

I'd appreciate your help.

No. Although there are (rare) exception, the words "song" implies singing.

The word you want here is piece.

By the 1700s, European glass harp masters could play pieces by Mozart and Beethoven on the instruments.
