The Code of Latvian Music (20/01/2015)
''Since the regaining of independence, Latvian musicology has experienced not too loud although significant changes, both in wider recognition and in gaining new approaches and viewpoints. Views to the academic have also broadened, and freed themselves from ideological origins, methodical and other constraints, and teachings. This compilation of essays strongly confirms this. It focuses largely on changes in the music itself, as well as in its varied contexts and tests associated with them.
The authors of the essays are middle- aged music researchers. They include musicologists, composers and music publicists. Each text is deeply individual not only in the theme and its conclusion, but also stylistically.
The adressees of the collection are music and musicology professionals, academics of related fields and emerging researchers, as well as non- specialists who are interested in the newest processes of culture and art''

''The collection undoubtedly provokes thought and imagination, creates interest and demands a sequel. And that is the best thing that musicology can give.''
