departments and scholarly music sites
This week we leave the glitzy world of banner advertising, on-line CD
sales and referral schemes to visit the rarefied environments of the universities,
and their music departments.
A list of Scholarly
Music Resources is provided by Professor William I. Bauer at Ball State
for Music Theory website contains lots of scholarly information, including
their journal - Music
Theory Online. Typical articles are '"Schenkerian-Schoenbergian
Analysis" and Hidden Repetition in the Opening Movement of Beethoven's
Piano Sonata Op.10, No. 1' and 'Hans Rott (1858-1884) -- the missing link
between Bruckner and Mahler'.
Guide is published by the University of Maryland Libraries - useful
as a starting point for world music and ethnomusicology research.
RILM is the Répertoire International
de Littérature Musicale with a searchable on-line database. Searching
is not free - visitors can either pay per search or buy an online subscription.
Yahoo have an alphabetical
list of University Music Departments, although the Royal Holloway link
below is more comprehensive and better organised. The Open Directory project's
provides an interesting list of sites to explore.
Music Department's 'Golden Pages' is a classified set of links to music
resources on the web, including comprehensive sections on music journals,
news services and dissertation abstracts in music. This links collection
is well worth a look, and their international list of University
and college music department and faculty home pages is a marvellous
springboard from which to begin your own journey through the world's University
