Abstract or Description

The music of Alfred Schnittke has an established place in concert repertoires around the world. Schnittke’s work has also been the subject of a large number of academic studies at music schools and conservatoires, and doctoral dissertations have been written on many aspects of his music and its context. The growing scholarly interest in Schnittke has been aided in recent years by the foundation of two research centres dedicated to his music and writings: the Alfred Schnittke Archive, Goldsmiths, and the Schnittke Centre, Moscow. Two further organisations have recently been established, the Schnittke Internationale Gesellschaft and the Schnittke Akademie in Hamburg, which are also dedicated to the study and dissemination of the composer’s music.

The Compozitor publishing house, St. Petersburg has undertaken to produce scholarly edition of Schnittke’s music (see the attached brochure). Two volumes (each in three parts) have already been published in 2009. The edition will run to 67 volumes and will provide access to Schnittke’s works, many of which have never before appeared in print.

A joint project of the Compozitor Publishing House, St Petersburg; The State Schnittke Institute, Moscow; Schnittke family Archive; The Alfred Schnittke Gesellschaft, Hamburg; Hans Sikorski Publishers, Hamburg; The Schnittke Akademie, Hamburg; and The Alfred Schnittke Archive at the Centre for Russian Music, Goldsmiths, University of London.
