Index der Basler Bibliographie zur Historischen Musikpraxis

"Die Basler Bibliographie unterscheidet sich von anderen musikbezogenen Bibliographie-Datenbanken (z.B. RILM, BMS) vor allem durch ihre Disposition (kurz: Index). Mit ihr werden die erfassten Titel genau umschriebenen Themenbereichen zugeordnet. Diese Disposition wurde in die digitale Version übernommen und steht für die Recherche zur Verfügung. So können Themenbereiche auf unvergleichlich präzise Weise eingegrenzt werden."

With it, the recorded titles are assigned to precisely defined subject areas. This classification scheme was taken over into the digital version and can be used for searches.

"It doesn’t take a rock expert to know that David Bowie’s musical influence has cast a large shadow ever since he broke out as a quasi-alien pop star with his 1972 classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. But one could have never heard a note of Bowie’s music (including his new album) and still be wowed by the extent to which the man’s various guises have, as you can see here, inspired a multitude of artists. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Bowie should be blushing."
