Antonín Dvorák: The Present State of the Critical Edition of his Complete Works
Prague, May 1999

CALL FOR PAPERS Antonín Dvorák: The Present State of the Critical Edition of his Complete Works May 28-29, 1999 Bohuslav Martinu Foundation Study Centre nám. Kinskych 3, CZ-150 00, Prague 5
Dear Colleagues, The Czech Musicological Society, in cooperation with the Institute of Musicology (Charles University, Prague), Institute of Musicology (Czech Academy of Sciences), Antonin Dvorak Society, and Bohuslav Martinu Foundation, will be arranging an international conference "Antonin Dvorak - the Present State of the Critical Edition of his Complete Works". The conference will be held (as a separate part of the Annual Cololoquium on Prague Musical Life in Late 19th and Early 20th Century and the Works of Bohuslav Martinu) on May 28-29, 1999, at the Bohuslav Martinu Foundation's Study Center, nam. Kinskych 3, CZ-150 00 Prague 5. The purpose of the conference is to initiate a critical discussion on the existing volumes of the mentioned edition (first of them having been published in 1954, i.e. 45 years ago) from the viewpoint of present standards of editorial and performing practice and to reflect upon the perspectives and problems of resuming and completing the whole project. An urgent task seems to be a.o. the designing of the editorial rules ("Editionsrichtlinien") for this edition that, unfortunately, have not been established so far. If you are interested in attending this conference or if you would like to recommend other participants and to make proposals for the programme, communicate it to me before January 31, 1999.
