RILM Music Encyclopedias

RILM Music Encyclopedias is an ever-expanding full-text compilation of dozens of reference works published from 1775 to the present. It provides comprehensive encyclopedic coverage of the most important fields and subject areas of historical musicology, ethnomusicology, and theory, with topics ranging from popular music and rock, opera, instruments, blues and gospel, to performers and women composers. In line with RILM's global mission, its content spans multiple countries and languages—currently English, German, French, Italian, Czech, Dutch, Greek, Portuguese, Slovak, and Spanish. This extensive resource is designed to meet the teaching, learning, and research needs of the international music community.
