Methods of intensification of musical hearing of an accordionist at work on polyphonic compositions

Nedosekin Vyacheslav Aleksandrovich

The article considers one of the most urgent problems of music pedagogy - intensification of musical hearing of an accordion pupil at work on polyphonic compositions. The solution to this problem has its own specifics, due to the structural and acoustic characteristics of the accordion. A comparison of the various features of the instrument - both predisposing to play polyphonic compositions and limiting the expressive possibilities, reveals the diffi culties that arise at working of an accordionist on polyphony. Among them: the impossibility by dynamics emphasize one or more sounds of vertical structure in any one hand; sound difference of right and freebass manuals in terms of dynamic level, attack and timbre, making it difficult to form the sound balance and voices structure; the need to make the change of the bellows that in a rich and plangent texture inevitably causes breaks in the sounding of melodic lines. Competent and convincing performance of polyphonic music on the accordion is associated not only with an understanding of structural and acoustic characteristics of the instrument and a comprehensive development of musical hearing (in his pitch, melodic-linear, dynamic, polyphonic segments), but also with a skilful use of different articulation means and technique of transcription. Many aspects of the educational working of an accordionist on polyphonic compositions have already received coverage in the scientifi c and methodological literature. However, methods of intensification of musical hearing of a pupil (as an important component of this work) so far have not been considered.
