Description

The Oxford Dictionary of Music brings together an unrivalled collection of entries — 12,500 in all — covering musical subjects of all kinds in an authoritative and accessible way. Included in this impressive work are entries on composers, performers, conductors, musical terms and forms, instruments, works, venues, and a host of other topics.

Containing 5,000 entries on composers, most of which include up-to-date worklists, The Oxford Dictionary of Music also provides entries on conductors, performers, directors, critics, producers and designers of international repute, writers and scholars. Entries also cover individual works, including operas and ballets, orchestras and companies from around the world, famous opera houses, concert-halls, and musical festivals. Musical terms and styles, as well as forms ranging from operatic, vocal, and film scores, to song cycles, chamber, hymns, barbershop, and oratorios are covered, as are general themes such as musicology, acoustics, and absolute pitch, and historical periods such as the Byzantine era. Entries also include a wide range of musical instruments, from the familiar — strings, wind, and brass — to the less familiar — aeolian harp, bamboula and sackbut.

Excellent App

JSK67

I have the physical version of this reference book, and it appears to have all the information the other does. As with all the Oxford products I have purchased, it is very well done. Full of music history, and even delving into music itself though not in great detail. It is an excellent source of info on composers. Brief, yet concise. I found it an excellent companion when going thru my music history course.

My only gripe was that I had purchased this on an earlier platform and was subsequently discontinued so had to purchase again.

Still, well worth the investment!

Lacks a great deal of information

Brian Kemble

Here is an example of common terms you will either find misleading information or no information on. Dolce - apparently doesn’t mean sweetly, this app thinks you mean a part of an organ. Leggiero is not a term in this book. It seems as if everything I try to search comes up for with no information or poor information. I expected something akin to the online oxford dictionary which is wonderful. This app is a terrible waste of your money. Do not purchase if you have any musical training whatsoever. Just use google......

Oxford Dictionary of music

It’s excellent. I do wish there were a pronunciation feature (sound). I love the word of the day.
