SMI english

The Sudeten German Institute of Music (SMI) was founded in order to research, document and promote the musical heritage and creative energies of the Bohemian lands in all their fullness from the Middle Ages to the present day, with particular reference to the population with German language, descent, or nationality. The work of the SMI, while focussing particularly on the closely knit German-Czech interrelationships, concerns an area of great importance to European culture as a whole.

The SMI collects music, specialist literature, manuscripts and documents of all types connected with the music of the Bohemian lands. The reference collection of its service-oriented library is accessible to all researchers and interested persons.
