The Czech and Slovak Music Society is
an international organization started in 1987 and dedicated to the serious
study and greater understanding of the music of the Czech and Slovak Republics.
The Society embraces all musical venues, from 19th-century Czech nationalism
to the folk traditions of the Slovak Republic, from 17th-century liturgical
music to Ježek's Bugatti-Step and all areas between. We have no grandiose
ambitions but seek simply to provide a venue in which serious lovers of this
music can pose questions, share ideas, and generate discussions about various
aspects of the region's cultural endeavors, past and present. The Czech and
Slovak Music Society E-mail
Discussion List provides the opportunity to communicate about issues
of mutual interest and maintain contact with other subscribers. The
Society's on-line newsletter, published three times per year, contains
feature articles, notices of performances, conferences, and other opportunities,
as well as the accomplishments and activities of current
members. The Society's on-line bibliography
includes information about books, editions of scores, articles, lectures and
courses by Society and discussion list members as well as sources recommended
by the membership.
The Czech and Slovak Music Society Homepage
was constructed to provide a convenient location to access information
about the Czech and Slovak Republics, including topics related to language,
culture, education, and media with particular attention to cultural activities,
music societies and foundations, and academic forums that focus on the music
of this region. As with many homepages, it is a work in progress and comments
for improvement are always welcome.
