Musicus Online Museum
MUSICUS is the world’s first online museum of music curated by some of the world’s leading musicologists: a cutting-edge web platform combined with rich content presented in a series of virtual galleries devoted to special topics in studies of music. Free from the constraints of a physical museum, MUSICUS offers unparalleled access to its visitors not only to view images of musical sources and scores, read rich textual descriptions, participate in discussions of musical problems, and discover recent research in music, but also to experience video and audio performances “on-demand” from some of the world’s most outstanding performers.
“A MUSICUS is one who has taken the art of music not by the servitude of work but by the rule of contemplation. A MUSICUS assumes the skill of judging the whole of music.” (Boethius, De institutione musica, 6th c.)
