International scientific conference ‘Flying on the auditory wave...’, dedicated to the anniversary of Lyudmila Kovnatskaya
On Monday, February 15, 2021, the music sector of the Russian Institute for the History of the Arts is holding an International scientific conference ‘Flying on the auditory wave…’, dedicated to the anniversary of the leading researcher of the Institute, Doctor of Art History Lyudmila Grigoryevna Kovnatskaya.
Lyudmila Grigoryevna Kovnatskaya — authoritative scientist, the head of a large international scientific school, the person, able to inspire colleagues to a great collective effort, whether international Congress, music festival or quite grandiose in concept ‘scientific establishment’, which, for example, is the multi-volume ‘Chronicles of the life and work of D. D. Shostakovich’, created right now.
Work with documents, and personal archives of the great composers and great scientists close to Lyudmila in spirit gave her the opportunity to represent complex multicultural processes, which resulted in a wonderful musical (Britten, Shostakovich) and scientific results, due to which the legacy of Braudo, Druskin, Orlov is still alive and continues to lead the search for the young generation.
The conference is designed as a rather intimate gathering, in which colleagues, students, like-minded people, old friends can tell about some ‘special’ research stories related to the scientific topics of Lyudmila Grigorievna or just able to interest her.
