Gavrilova Natalia Sergeevna

The article reveals briefly the essence of the «ideomotor» concept tracing its history. The level of piano technique depends with the pianists’ training about ideomotor memory of their fingers, so the motor or otherwise reflex memory of muscles problem is very important for them. One of the article’s objectives is the search for the causes of occupational pianists’ hands’ professional diseases and the ways to confrontation. Progress in research has led to the study of the sports psychology techniques and, as a result, the parallel between the work of the pianists about the piano technique and the training of athletes was drawn. It also took some useful for pianists’ training points from the Stanislavsky’s method for actors. The article shows the possibility of using individual elements of these techniques for the correction of the pianist’s wrong movements thereout the «automatism» is formed only after repeated the tangles «imagination motion - a real movement» in certain movements of the average person. The article proposes also a hypothesis about the emotions’ impact for the physiological elements of ideomotor memory’s correction, scientific innovation is in describing the ideomotor moving process which translating by the way of concentration from unconscious for conscious. Artist uses unconsciously, as a rule, his ideomotor memory and learns the wrong movement inevitably in developing his piano technique. Therefore if the pianist can advance to represent closely his emotional reactions about his own movements and if he is able to imagine them and then adjust, so his ideomotor processes would be more accurate and affect to his hands and fingers physical condition.

The research is based on musical notation of instrumental tunes recorded during some expeditions with the author's participation since the late 1980s to early 2000s.

The analysis algorithm is described in detail on the example of one instrumental tune of the Bear-feast. Then presented the conclusions obtained from the analysis of all notations. Three levels of the temporal organization (rhythmic formula - line - tirade) are indefined, a relationship between the thematic subgroups of melodies and using rhythmic formula is found. Semantic link is defined the most clearly between ritual mythological tunes - on the one hand, and formulas containing dotted rhythm, short duration on the first beat, as well as three- and five-beat formula - on the other.

Gordeev Petr N.

The article is devoted to the conflict between F.I. Chaliapin and the chorus of the Mariinsky theatre in March 1917. The hostile relations between the great artist and the chorus troupe were formed before the revolution. The cause of the conflict was the refusal of the chorists to perform with Chaliapin the last version of the national anthem composed by him. In a situation of the actual «power vacuum» in the State theatres in March 1917 they failed to convince the chorus. In the end, Chaliapin managed to perform his work on the stage of the Mariinsky theatre, taking part in a concert of the Preobrazhensky regiment. These events are one of the example of a characteristic of the revolutionary era confrontation between a bright personality and «the team», the value of which grew in 1917.

Vocal polyphony of Karachays and Balkars in the context of folklore and liturgical forms of polyphony

Vishnevskaya Liliya Alekseevna

The article deals with the issues of typology of Karachay and Balkar vocal polyphony. Comparative characterization within early folklore polyphony forms distinguishes common generic (Turkic) and specific regional (North Caucasian) features of the vocal polyphony of Karachays and Balkars. Drone presents the intersection axis with the church polyphony; it reveals the prospect for the studies of Karachay and Balkar vocal polyphony within the context of East Christian (Byzantine) liturgical songs. The possibility of this aspect of study, suggested for the first time, is determined by Christianity having been spread among the ancestors of Karachays and Balkars, by the existence of the relics of their Christian past in the present time. Guided by the concepts of musical anthropology, history of the emergence of the Byzantine singing style, and the theory of the early forms of vocal polyphony, the author attempts to explain the profound kinship of the folklore and church forms of vocal polyphony. Their similarity (consonance) is not due to being borrowed but it arises from unified performing and structural canons of «protopolyphony».
