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.
