The first volume of the 9th series of the critical edition Musica Scepusii Veteris contains a transcription and a critical edition of preserved music by Georg Wirsinger, a little-known composer from the first half of the 17th century.
The fourth volume of the Catalogus fragmentorum cum notis musicis medii aevi in Slovacia edition, which aims at making the oldest sources of music culture from the Slovak area more accessible, features the oldest music culture sources from the city of Trnava. 27 medieval manuscripts originate from different types of liturgical books (antiphonaries, graduals, missals and sequentiaries) dating from the 14. to 16. century.
The most recent issue is centered around the topic of music for keyboard instruments in the 19th and 20th centuries in Slovakia. The contributions were presented at the musicological seminar Contexts of music for keyboard instruments in Slovakia: Personalities, structure, function, organized by the Institute of Musicology, SAS, on June 17, 2015.
The first issue of Musicologica Slovaca in 2015 contains two papers on issues of systematic musicology (E. Ferková, Z. Cenkerová), as well as a study of Karol Plicka’s manuscript collection of Slovak folk songs (M. Timková). Material contributions focus on appraisals of personalities: Jozefa Kresánek as ethnomusicologist (H. Urbancová) and the music historian Ernest Zavarský (J. Lengová). A profile of the musicologist Ľuba Ballová (A. Čepec), conference reports and reviews conclude the issue.
