Description

The Oxford Dictionary of Music is targeted toward music lovers and performers, both amateur and professional, with an unrivaled collection of entries — 12,500 in all. Covering musical subjects of all kinds, you'll find 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 - 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. 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.

This is a mobile dictionary with content from Oxford University Press and advanced search and language tools that have become the staple of quality language apps from MobiSystems.
