This paper introduces DOREMUS, a semantic web project aiming to provide common knowledge models and shared multilingual vocabularies to cultural institutions, publishers, distributors and users in the music domain. In this project, we develop methods to describe, publish, connect and contextualize music catalogs on the web of data. Our focus is on the description of classical and traditional music works as well as their interpretations (events). In this paper, we highlight the dif iculty for interlinking music catalogues due to the complexity and the heterogeneity of music data and we demonstrate how semantic web technologies enable to benefit from a common data model that takes advantage of similarities without losing the specificity of each database.
