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.
A completely new version of a work first published in the late 19th century, this 20-volume set is the culmination of more than 12 years of work by 2,400 scholars. Packed with information on the history and development of music, composers, performers, instruments, musical forms, terms and definitions, and musical cites and institutions, the set covers every type of music, from classical to popular to jazz. Over 4,000 illustrations.
