History

The journal was established in February 1933 by the Union of Composers of the USSR and the Ministry of Culture of the USSR as a monthly print edition named "Soviet Music." From 1943 to 1946, it was issued as collections of articles. From 1951 to 1958, it was published with a printed music appendix. In 1979, it had the circulation in 21 thousand copies. In early 1992, by democratic decision of the editorial staff, the journal was renamed Music Academy.

In Soviet times, the journal published articles on domestic and foreign classical composers’ works, the problems of music science, the development of national and ethnic musical cultures, heritage and education, and performance issues. Also, the journal comprised discussion materials, critical articles and reviews of concerts and theater premieres, books and printed music, a chronicle of domestic and foreign musical life. The editorial board of the journal included renowned Soviet composers and musicologists. In particular, Dmitri Shostakovich was a member of the editorial board from 1946 to 1975.
