It was the journalist Tatjana Myslevich who had invited Marina Mihaileca from the National Library of Latvia, Alla Semenyuk from Russian State Library, Marina Demina and Besa Spahiu from The Music and Theatre Library in Sweden.

Swedish Musical Heritage

Pia Shekhter's picture

"There exists a significant amount of excellent historical Swedish music that is little known and seldom heard. The aim of Swedish Musical Heritage is to increase knowledge about this music and to propagate its performance. A large part of older Swedish music is notoriously difficult to perform, simply because the existing sources are unattainable for musicians, are in illegible hand writing, or are, for various other reasons, impractical to use. Surprisingly, this is true also of music by some of Sweden’s most prominent composers.
