In January 2023, RILM Music Encyclopedias will welcome two new titles into its continuously expanding collection of historical and current reference volumes:
- Kovačević, Krešimir, gen. ed. Muzička enciklopedija (2nd ed.; Zagreb: Jugoslavenski Lekskografski Zavod, 1971–77) 3 vols.; 713- p. ; 742 p.; 789 p. In Croatian and Serbian.
- Krešimir Kovačević, ed. Leksikon jugoslavenske muzike (Zagreb: Jugoslavenske Leksikografski Zavod Miroslav Krlea, 1984) 2 vols.; 589 p.; 575 p. In Croatian.
The 2023 additions to RILM Music Encyclopedias enrich the content of the collection with two complementary titles that document the music history and musical life of Southeastern Europe. Both reference works were edited by the distinguished Croatian music historian Krešimir Kovačević (1913–92), who was active as a music writer, critic, teacher, conductor, and editor-in-chief of the Croatian music periodical Arti musices (1973–79). Both works were published by the Jugoslavenski Leksikografski Zavod in Zagreb and represent a collaboration of the best scholars from all six Yugoslav states.
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 can be accessed via EBSCOhost and on RILM’s platform Egret at rme.rilm.org.
