MGG Online

MGG Online is the new digital encyclopedia for music researchers worldwide. It features the second edition of Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, the authoritative reference work that has supported music scholarship since 1949, now with regularly updated and newly written articles. MGG Online has been developed by Bärenreiter and J.B. Metzler in partnership with Répertoire International de  Littérature Musicale (RILM).

RILM has built a new platform, which searches every corner of MGG Online to identify material relevant to the researcher’s objective. Like the content, the platform will be enhanced on an ongoing basis.

Its Editor-in-Chief, the renowned musicologist Laurenz Lütteken (Zurich), is collaborating with an editorial board of internationally respected musicologists, the MGG editorial department, and authors around the world to update and add new content on a continual basis.

MGG Online is an integral part of international musicology in the digital age.
