Description:

Since its initial publication in 1980, the Dictionary has been widely acclaimed as an indispensable resource and a classic reference. The word "updated" doesn't begin to describe the thousands of new articles, topics, cross-references, and areas of scholarship incorporated into The New Grove II. Every one of the first edition's 22,500 articles has been reviewed and revised, with thousands of articles expanded. Previously neglected or under-represented areas have been examined, explored, and explained. Movements and topics once deemed too controversial or too far from the mainstream have been added. And throughout, 6,500 new articles cover more than 5,000 years of music history, instruments, composers, institutions, performers, genres, and more.

The New Grove II takes you beyond the customary and familiar into new worlds with extensive, authoritative contributions on non-Western music. From major influences, such as Latin American music, to less-examined contributions, such as Asian, sub-Saharan African, and Pacific Islander, The New Grove II presents the music, theory, instruments, and musicians that have helped to define music around the world.

Features:

  • 29,000+ articles and 6,000+ contributors from 98 countries
  • 20,000+ biographies and 5,000+ photographs, diagrams, drawings, and maps
  • coverage of new schools of thought within musicology, such as feminism and gay and lesbian music
  • increased coverage of jazz and popular music
  • meticulously cross-referenced
  • thousands of musical examples
  • specially commissioned maps and line drawings
Reviews:

"Grove remains the best single source of musical information in English. Given the degree to which it has branched into world music, pop and contemporary analytical theory, it may now be the most comprehensive musical dictionary in any language."--The New York Times

"The Grove is...a magnificent achievement, and, more than that, it is a work of love....Another remarkable effort....The book is like a corridor with a million doors, each opening onto a separate world."--The New Yorker

"...mark my words, anyone with a serious interest in music, whether classical, popular, ethnic or jazz, will benefit from this reference work's acquaintance....Nothing remotely as comprehensive or so extensively researched exists to rival it in the English language."--The Toronto Star

"...this latest Grove, like every one of its predecessors, is...the most prestigious publication in any field of the arts."--L. A. Weekly

"To be sure, New Grove II continues to uphold the tradition associated with the world's leading musical reference source...serving all who have an interest in music--with scholarly accuracy, authority and thoroughness."--Chicago Tribune
