The chapter is structured around several thorny issues that shape and define our conversation about Soviet music and contemporary Russian musical life across the East–West divide. Among these are the continuing exoticisation of Soviet music by the West and the persisting taboo areas in Russian musical research today. In conclusion, an attempt is made to suggest how these prejudices and blind spots can be overcome to further scholarship and to create the mutual understanding that is needed for effective dialogue between Russian and Western musicologists, especially in the light of renewed tensions between Russia and the West.
