The Institute of Musicology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences

Website: http://uhv.sav.sk

The Institute of Musicology of SAS (Ústav hudobnej vedy SAV) was founded in 1943 among the first research workplaces of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and Arts (Slovenská akadémia vied a umení, 1942 – 1953). Until 1990 the Institute was part of The Institute of Research on Art, SAS (Umenovedný ústav SAV) as the Musicology Section (Sekcia hudobnej vedy). In 1990 it became independent and renewed under its original name Ústav hudobnej vedy Slovenskej akadémie vied. The Institute of Musicology of the SAS performs basic research of music and music culture in Slovakia in regional, national, Central European and European contexts. Our research conception derives from the integrated model of musicology, based on the pursuing of and collaboration between the three core disciplines: historical musicology, ethnomusicology, and systematic musicology.

In the planned cooperation could provide a common basis for the methodology of the data processing, publication of the database.
Previous cooperation with project partner: Jana Laslavikova’s dissertation (defended in 2009) on the Stadttheater from Bratislava (1886–1920) is based on an exhaustive source research and contains data, such as the complete overview of the activity of the directors of the Bratislava Hungarian and German theatres. Since then several studies have been published and a database of theatrical programmes had been initiated.
