- Publisher's Summary
- "The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians" is an authority on all aspects of music. It is widely used by academics and the professional community. First published in 1980, it is a successor to the five-volume "Dictionary of Music and Musicians" edited by Sir George Grove in 1878-83. During the 1980s and 1990s scholarship has advanced, new composers and new performers have emerged, new perspectives have transformed traditional thinking in many areas, and non-Western and popular music attract interest among scholars and researchers worldwide. For these reasons, a team of over 60 has since 1993 been preparing the second edition. Features include 20 million words, 29,000 articles, over 4000 contributors from all parts of the world. New features include: being revised throughout; new biographies, topics, 20th-century composers and 20th-century performers; world music; jazz, rock, popular and light music; and instruments and their history. There is an equivalent on-line service with links images, sound and related sites.

- 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.
