Register of Our Delusions (conversations and reflections concerning Russian musicology, presenter — A. A. Amrakhova)

Abstract
Prominent Russian musicologists L. O. Akopyan, M. A. Saponov, R. A. Nassonov and K. V. Zenkin in their conversations with A. A. Amrakhova discuss the problems that are topical for contemporary musicology in Russia: the special musicological methods of research, the latest trends in humanitarian methodology, the discrepancy of the classical analytical apparatus with contemporary musical art. In an attempt to answer the question “What theories and ideas deserve today a serious reassessment?” — a “register of our delusions” is created.
