Croatia in New Grove
Because I teach music history (and because I found a really good
bargain price!), I recently purchased the entire hard-bound, 29-volume
set of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. It was a joy to
see a nice long entry in volume 6 on Croatian music, from pp. 700-709.
It covers both Art and traditional music from medieval times to the year
2000, including musical examples when needed. And (as usual with
Grove's) the entry includes an excellent bibliography in a variety of
languages. The bibliography covers the following areas: art music, music
collections, studies of special regions, instruments, dances,
recordings, and other studies.
Many thanks to the excellent work of Stanislav Tuksar and
Grozdana Marosevic for this English-language source. Many thanks to the
New Grove editors for this, as well as entries on over 50 composers now
identified as Croatian on the online Grove. And many thanks to Croatia
for being a small but excellent country full of incredibly talented
Nenad: it's a paid subscription. Our university subscribes, as do others. I would imagine that English-language libraries (at least the larger ones in metropolitan areas) would also subscribe. The home page address is:http://www.grovemusic.com/
PS: Congratulations on your Vanguard entry! The cream always rises to the top!
