Deconstruction of a genre of a song: Furrer’s «Lied»

Petruseva Nadezhda A.

Traditions of a postserial modernism and experimental postmodernism are shown on example of the play «Lied for a violin and a piano» (1993) by Bеat Furrer. For the expansion of the original composer’s approach to interpretation of a genre of a song, his compositional techniques and the method of musical thinking are considered the material and shape of the pieces, the disposition of rows, hidden symmetry is one of essential aesthetic categories of New music, parameters of an articulation, dynamics and tempo drama. The article used a complex method of analysis as a combination of musical structure, set theory, phenomenology of musical elements (focus consciousness on sound structures of various parameters) and hermeneutics (as the art of interpretation). The novelty of the article due to the absence in the national musicology research, dedicated to the works Beat Furrer. Heterogeneous multi-parameter «Lied» continues traditions of Webern’s music and serial composers. The new status of the song is the configuration of the virtual «objects» («rhythmically complex, heterogeneous mixtures of sounds»), open bars, tempo and dramatic through-strophic form. There is a gap in relation to the nearest metamorphosis classic-romantic tradition. At the same time the composer seeks to approve a game (circular) discourse, whereby the internal structural peculiarity of «events» as it causes to the neutralization of both time and history (tradition of Nietzsche, Levi-Strauss, Stravinsky and Cage).

Musical connotations and their role in uncovering the meaning of the work

Stogniy Irina S.

The article deals with the identification of musical connotations that are certainly present in each piece of music in the form of elements of the plan. Connotation - multiple objects existing in different areas of the artistic whole. They claim their holistic learning as a kind of paradigm shift in the role of a whole array of «shadow structures». In part, this calls for experience gained in musicology disparate observations of the elements of the «second plan». But the main motivation for their study is the realization that at present, more than ever, denoting the importance of learning processes, rather than lying «on the surface» as being «in the shadows». As well as denotations connotations can be represented by different elements of the musical text: melodic intonation, harmonic complex, rhythm and texture cell timbre - their main feature is the finding of the «shadow» to the main line of meaning. The functioning of lexical and semantic elements as denotations or connotations determined only by the context of the work. The study of the multidimensional semantic space allows you to see the music in «shadow structures» that are fragmented and diverse manifest themselves, the fact that they often play the most significant role in the construction of the artistic whole. This article discusses the structural and compositional models and intertextual connotations models. As examples: Sanctus from «Requiem» by Alfred Schnittke, «Intermezzo» Brahms, «Dance of the Seven Veils» from the opera «Salome» by Richard Strauss and Piano Fantasy V. Ryabov dedicated to the memory of M. Yudina. The analysis makes it possible to evaluate the role of connotations that contribute to alignment of the individual meanings when used universally valid means. In addition it leads to an understanding that contribute to the expansion of the connotation of musical vocabulary, its values and in general form the way to the development of language proving an indispensable sign of artistic masterpiece.

Specificity of sound creativity of the Turkic peoples was reflected in two basic categories such as zhyr (yr) and kyui (koi).The timbre-register sound model focused on the human voice, which has long been considered the most perfect musical instrument.
