About the Journal

Journal Muzikologija-Musicology (ISSN 1450-9814, eISSN 2406-0976) is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2001 that promotes contemporary Serbian musicological and ethnomusicological research in international circles; at the same time, by including contributions of eminent foreign scholars, it has become an important and reliable source on contemporary musicological ethnomusicological scientific tendencies and knowledge around the world. It is dedicated to the research of music as an aesthetical, cultural, historical and social phenomenon, with a primary focus on musicological and ethnomusicological research. The Journal also welcomes approaches from diverse scientific disciplines (history, history of art and literature, ethnology, anthropology, sociology, comunicology, semiotics, music pshychology etc.) as well as interdisciplinary projects.
Three sections make up the backbone of the magazine. The Main Theme contains original articles related to a specific musicological or ethnomusicological topic. The Varia section contains scientific studies from a wider circle of thematic areas relevant to the artistic, vernacular, and ecclesiastical music traditions. The third section – Scientific Reviews and Polemics – comprises reviews of various musicological and ethnomusicological publications and reports on scientific meetings.
Until 2011 the journal was published annually. Due to an increasing interest among local and international contributors, the Editorial Board decided to start publishing two issues per year (June and December), both in print and in open access digital format.
The Journal is indexed in the Web of Science ,  SCOPUS, ERIH PLUS, DOAJ , ProQuest , DoiSerbia, RILM, and in the  List of Scientific Journals Categorization of Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia  (M24).

No. 34 (2023): Contemporary Perspectives on Stravinsky
Cover for journal Musicology No. 34

With its Main theme, the journal Musicology No. 34 contributes to the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky’s death. The topics cover a wide range of issues relating to all three phases of Stravinsky’s career (the Russian, the Neoclassical and the Serial), including the impact and reception of his work and, more specifically, a contextualisation of Stravinsky’s Russian output with reference to the history of Russian folkloristics; a reframing of his Neoclassicism with reference to his relationship with Jacques Maritain, as well as the role that Pierre Souvtchinsky played in the composition of the Poetics of Music; a reevaluation of expressiveness in the works of the serial period; a discussion of the impact of Stravinsky’s work on French postwar composers; a view on the meaning of corporeality and dance in his output; and a reappraisal of Theodor Adorno’s critique of Stravinsky’s work. The Varia section brings the results of diverse musicological research, starting from the analysis of pieces of a contemporary Serbian composer who treats the voice in non-traditional ways, followed by an article that connects performance studies and the study of music through the analysis of kinesthetic gestures in Beethoven’s piano sonatas, and closing with a text that contributes to the history of Serbian music critique.
