No. 27 (2019): The Future of Music History
The theme of the issue No 27 The Future of Music History was inspired by the eponymous seminar organised as part of a conference held at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in September 2017. The seminar was prepared by Jim Samson, one of the most outstanding musicologists of our time, Emeritus Professor of Music, Royal Holloway (University of London), member of the British Academy and author of more than 100 publications, including the first comprehensive history of music in the Balkans in English (Leiden: Brill, 2013). Professor Samson kindly accepted our invitation to be the guest editor of this issue, in which we publish articles by four of five panelists (Reinhard Strohm, Martin Loeser, Katherine Ellis and Marina Frolova-Walker). We are deeply grateful to these pre-eminent musicologists for their thorough reflection on the future of our discipline and the continuous efforts to make the subject of study the geographical regions, social strata and listening practices that have hitherto been neglected in musicological considerations.
