Institute of Musicology

The Institute of Musicology at the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (founded in 1972 and established in 1980) is the only independent musicological research group in Slovenia. It specializes primarily in the study of historical musical heritage within the territory of the present-day Republic of Slovenia. From the very start, the basic work of the researchers at the Institute of Musicology has been to inventory in a systematic fashion the musical sources in Slovenian archives and libraries. The researchers also carry out scholarly studies of various periods in music history, past musical phenomena, and the most important musical works forming part of Slovenia’s cultural heritage. The latter include both works by Slovenian composers and works by others that have contributed to musical life within the geographical area of modern Slovenia.
