Faculty of Music and Arts of Daugavpils University (Latvia) in co-operation with Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas (Lithuania) and Institute of Music of University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland) and Belarusian State Academy of Music (Belarus) organize the 14th International Scientific Conference Music Science Today: the permanent and the changeable.

The range of themes of the conference is rather great firstly due to the common thematic line, since the permanent and the changeable issues in music are everlasting and comprehensive ones. The situation of postmodern culture, the spread of new style trends and new types of music have even more escalated the topicality of the above-mentioned issues. Secondly, apart from the tandem of history and theory, the dominant of the conference is also the other pair – the close co-existence and interaction of the research and the pedagogic-methodological aspects. Third, the total value of the conference is built also by the fact that serious presentations will be made by both Latvian scientists and foreign scholars. The content of the conference thus becomes richer with every participant, and the encouraging ideas voiced and proposed at the conference will make the basis for further research and the analysis of the cultural situation.

The aim of the conference is to promote the development of scientific communication on the international scale, to enrich the Latvian music science with new findings, to stimulate scientists to research the questions related to academic, traditional and popular music history and theory, as well as the 20th century music analysis in an integrated way.
