Ecco la press release di Europeana Sounds:
“Europeana Music, an exciting new web resource, launches officially on 4 November 2016. It brings together unique music content — from some of Mozart’s earliest recordings to Smashing Pumpkin concerts — from sound archives and other heritage institutions across Europe. A treasure trove of more than 250,000 unique cultural items for music professionals, academics and enthusiasts alike to discover.
Europeana Music is the latest product of Europeana, the digital platform which builds on Europe’s rich digital heritage and makes it available for people to use, whether for research and learning, work, or just for fun. Music historians, academics or people simply looking for a new piece of music can now search, browse and download high-quality content provided by more than 50 European institutions in one dedicated site. This has been made possible by the Europeana Sounds consortium and many other partners.
Europeana Music serves up a thematic collection of the highest quality of digitised music from Europeana’s database. The collection comprises a wide spectrum of material from Monteverdi to recordings of indigenous songs and folk dances to concert recordings of more contemporary bands. And in addition to exploring the site, the Europeana Radio feature allows visitors to casually discover and listen to great and unknown songs from the vast collection.
The Europeana Music website is launched officially today during the Europeana Sounds’ second international conference ‘Unlocking Sound Collections’ in Lithuania hosted by Vilnius University.”
