SMT Russian Music Theory Interest Group

The aim of SMT-Rus is to discuss, promote, and engage with Russian music-theoretical traditions. This includes approaches that intersect with those studied by Western scholars, as well as areas/concepts that are unique to Russian scholarship.  This interest group was inaugurated at the 2013 meeting of the Society for Music Theory in Charlotte, NC.

The SMT-Rus operates a Humanities Commons page (, where members can share their writing or teaching materials, collaboratively edit documents, and post on a discussion board. Create an account at Humanities Commons, then proceed to join the group, which can be accessed at
