Music Dictionary

Have you ever wondered what Acciaccatura means? How about a Half cadence, Eclogue or a Darabukka? And what does Pianissississississimo really mean? Ever seen a Wurstfagott? Me neither.

I found this well done multimedia music dictionary so I thought I'd share this discovery with you. It's really done, and it was created by the Virginia Tech Department of Music.

There are of course lots of obscure terms here, many of which I've never heard of. However, sometimes, I forget what a term like Decrescendo or Diminuendo means when reading over some sheet music. At such times, this dictionary can come in handy.

Another cool thing is that all of the musical terms in the glossary have AIFF files associated with them, so you can listen to the pronounciation of the term.

Take a look at the Virginia Tech Multimedia Music Dictionary and see what you think.
