Dictionary of Composers' Writings
DICTECO is a digital application devoted to composers' writings. It will serve as a guide to composers' writings for students, researchers, musicians, and music-lovers. It includes two parts : a dictionary and a databse.
The dictionary in progress is classified alphabeticaly by name of composer. A general presentation will be attached to each composer's name. Each of the composer’s books will be the subject of a specific entry. These different entries can be downloaded as a PDF document.
The main goal of the database in progress is to inventory composers' main writings :
To identify the existing digital versions of composers' writings
Dicteco also inventories the various translations of these different writings.
The database can be consulted in different ways : by composer, by categories of writings, by genres (autobiography, criticism, pamphlet, survey response,…). The research bar also allows thematic queries to be launched (for example « piano », « Cortot », « education »…).
