The musicologists Andrej Ustinov, Alexander Laskowski, Dr Levon Hakobian, and Antonina Klokova have announced an International Weinberg Conference in Moscow, which will take place in February 2017.

The international conference entitled 'Mieczyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996): A Re-Discovery of the Composer' will be held from 16 to 19 February 2017 in the rooms of the Bolshoi Theatre and the Russian State Art Historical Institute in Moscow. Weinberg researchers and specialists are invited to take part at the conference. The texts will subsequently be printed in a symposium volume.

The conference is a part of  the major theatre-and-music project, developed by nine Russian and Polish cultural institutions. Within the framework of this project, Weinberg's operas 'The Idiot' and 'The Passenger' will be performed as well as several chamber works.
