The Grove Music Online board and staff are sad to report the death of Grove author and ethnomusicologist, Bruno Nettl (1930-2020). Bruno’s article “Music,” written for the second edition of New Grove (2001), is a centerpiece of the dictionary, marking a broadening of coverage of ethnomusicology and the beginning of a more global approach to the dictionary. He recently submitted a new article on music in culture. We look forward to publishing it later this year.
