No. 28 (2020): Russian-Serbian Cultural Relations Reflected in Music
The main theme of the journal Musicology originated from the international scientific conference Russian-Serbian Chanting Connections, which was organized in October 2018 by the Institute of Musicology of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Belgrade. The centuries-long musical, artistic and cultural ties between the Russian and Serbian peoples have been researched and studied by scientists from both countries; nevertheless, the richness and significance of these ties require new research and interpretation.
In this issue of the journal Musicology, musicologists, philologists and art historians from Serbia and Russia gathered together to shed light on the topic of Russian-Serbian permeations in the domains of church art and musical performance on a temporally and thematically broad and interdisciplinary basis. The main theme of the issue was edited by Dr. Vesna Sara Peno, principal research fellow of the Institute of Musicology of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, one of the leading experts in the field of Byzantine music.
