New content: Naxos Musicology

Naxos Musicology International, a new online platform for music scholarship and opinion, is now available online via the Naxos Music Library.

Much like a traditional journal, the platform seeks to advance and extend musicological work on a range of repertoires, genres, creative and scholarly approaches. In addition, Naxos seeks to engage with emerging trends in the music industry, exploring intersections between modes of listening, consumption and criticism (the so-called ‘attention economy’), as well as ongoing technological developments. Connecting scholars, students and educational institutions with critics and industry professionals, the platform aims to promote strong voices, informed critique and imaginative commentary: that is, engaging writing in an approachable style that speaks across social, cultural and institutional barriers.

Please find here an interview (in German language) with Naxos Musicology Editor-in-Chief Davinia Caddy: https://www.naxosonlinelibraries.de/naxos-musicology-international-die-plattform-zum-austausch-aktueller-musikwissenschaftlicher-forschung/

You may access Naxos Musicology via Naxos Music Library with your BnL or LLC reader card. Please click “Musicology” in the left hand menu.

Of course we also recommend you visiting the other streaming platforms included in our subscription:
