Prague, May 2001


International Conference on "Editing the Works of Bohuslav Martinu": 

Preparing a complete critical edition of the works of Bohuslav Martinu 
(1890-1959) is one of the long-term goals of the Bohuslav Martinu 
Foundation and Bohuslav Martinu Institute in Prague. Toward this end, a 
conference will be held on 25-26 May 2001 in Zdenka Podhajska Hall, 
Kinskych Square 3, CZ-150 00 Prague 5, in which future editors of Martinu's 
works and representatives of Czech and foreign publishing houses will 
discuss the musicological, organizational, and jurisdictional terms for 
this huge project. It will be the first gathering aimed at surveying 
results achieved so far and setting the direction for the coming decade.
