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.

Review:

This is the big one -- 20 thick volumes packed full of information on musical history, composers, artists and more. It carries a big price tag, but it's an invaluable aid for the serious student or writer. Grove has several other dictionaries, opera and jazz among them, but if you can only handle one, this is the one to get. This text refers to the 20 Volume edition of this title.

From the Publisher:

The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, 2nd edition is universally acknowledged as the unsurpassed authority on all aspects of music. This respected work is widely used throughout the academic and professional community, and revered by music-lovers worldwide.

First published in 1980 - a fine successor to the four-volume Dictionary of Music and Musicians, edited by Sir George Grove in 1878-90 - The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, 2nd edition embodies the finest traditions of academic publishing. But during the last two decades the world of music has not stood still – scholarship has advanced, new composers and new performers have emerged, new perspectives have transformed traditional thinking in many key areas, and non-Western and popular music attract growing interest among scholars and researchers worldwide.

For these reasons, a team of over 60 spent over seven years preparing the second edition, which Grove proudly published in print and online in January 2001.
