In 2007, the 40th Baltic Musicological Conference was organised in Vilnius by the Musicological Section of the Lithuanian Composers’ Union in association with the International Musicological Society. Devoted to the link between music as creative practice and experience and its social and cultural contexts, the topic of the conference, “Poetics and Politics of Place in Music,” included the following aspects: sense and representation of place in music and politics of cultural identity; embeddedness of music in cultural context and intercultural exchange; local vs. global in musical creativity and its reception; genius loci and conceptualisations of local soundscapes, and others.
The essays contained in this collection of the conference’s proceedings explore how these ideas have been expressed in Europe and in Baltic diasporas in the U.S. from the 19th to the  21st centuries.
