RILM Music Encyclopedias: New Titles for 2022

In January 2022 RILM Music Encyclopedias will add three more reference works to its collection of currently 60 historical and current titles. These are:

  • François Henry Joseph Blaze (Castil-Blaze). Dictionnaire de musique moderne (2nd ed.; Paris: Au magasin de musique de la Lyre moderne, 1825) 2 vols; xvi, 324 p. [25]; 389 p.
  • Sokol Shupo. Enciklopedia e muzikës shqiptare (Tiranë: Asmus, 2002) 318 p.
  • Terry Moran. Vietnamese musical instruments: A monographic lexicon ([Singapore]: author, 2020) 384 p.

The addition of these titles, which augment the coverage and depth of RILM Music Encyclopedias, emphasizes RILM’s mission to include the music scholarship of all countries and in all languages.

RILM Music Encyclopedias is the continuously expanding global online repository of music encyclopedias and dictionaries designed to meet the teaching, learning and research needs of the international music community. In addition to quarterly updates and revisions, including additions to Komponisten der Gegenwart, the repository broadens its coverage annually.

RILM Music Encyclopedias can be accessed via EBSCOhost and, as of recently, on RILM’s platform Egret at rme.rilm.org.
