  • 16.03.2015

We are very pleased to announce the publication of Perspectives on Twentieth-Century Russian Theory in Music Theory Online, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of the Society for Music Theory. The essays in this collection present a wide range of topics: mutability, modality, hemitonicism, expression parameters, counterpoint, and holistic analysis. Inessa Bazayev and Ellon Carpenter provide an introduction with background on the history of Russian theory and prior scholarship in the West. The authors are Ellen Bakulina (City University of New York), Inessa Bazayev (Louisiana State University), Zachary Cairns (University of Missouri – St. Louis), Philip Ewell (Hunter College), Christopher Segall (University of Cincinnati), and Daniil Zavlunov (Stetson University). It is our sincere hope that this publication will contribute to and facilitate ongoing dialogue between music theorists in Russia and America.
