    Default Classical Dictionary Idea?

    Hey I had this idea...I don't know if it is on here or not, but I thought it was good


    Classical Dictionary Topic

    Maybe some more seasoned Classical veterans can post the meanings of terminology and explaination of piece organization and such..

    I thought that this would be great for Classical Newbies like myself and perhaps others who are slightly confused about terms and organization.

    Thanks

    Perhaps this one : Dolmetsch Music Dictionary might be of help.

    Everyone with an deeper interest in music than "I don't know anything about it but I know what I like" should have some kind of musical dictionary in their bookshelf. The Oxford dictionary of Musical Terms can be had for about £4 (used) on Amazon, a few others around the same price.

    I married a music graduate who has her own music library, so it looks as though I've saved £4.
