Moscow Finding: A Discovery of a Source of the Abendmusik 1692 by Buxtehude

Shabalina Tatiana V.

The article is devoted to finding of a hitherto unknown printed text of the Abendmusik 1692 by Dieterich Buxtehude. The libretto was found at the Museum of a Book of the Russian State Library and in October 2016 was presented at the Meeting of the International Buxtehude-Society in Lübeck. The article demonstrates that the newly found source is the sole original printed libretto of Buxtehude's Abendmusik for five Sundays. Although its musical material did not survive, the study of the discovered text gives information about the composition of the Abendmusik, peculiarities of succession of its works, their forms, poetical language and content. It is shown that contrary to the modern conception of the Abendmusik by Buxtehude as «an oratorio in five parts with German texts on the Biblical subject» the libretto has another structure (and does not correspond to the oratorio genre), as well as contains a mixture of German and Latin texts taken from different books and chapters of the Bible. However the analysis of the text provides new insights into relation of different parts of the Abendmusik at the level of its general idea. Besides it is demonstrated that the libretto gives important information about a vocal and instrumental cast of the works and their performing means. At the conclusion of the research it is drawn that, being the sole existing copy, the newly found source adds one more Abendmusik with a number of unknown pieces to the list of works by the composer and enriches (in some aspects essentially changes) our knowledge of the unique genre elaborated by Dieterich Buxtehude with the diversity of its compositional ideas and forms.

"Philosophy of the Name" in chamber-instrumental compositions of Yury Vorontsov (the first decade of XXI century)

Chernyaeva Alla L.

In the article the author considers the phenomenon of «the name» of a composition in the context of contemporary domestic music. The designated problem is localized and took up in connection with the chamber-instrumental opuses of a Moscow composer Yury Vorontsov. The compositions represented in the article were written in the end of the XX century and the first decade of the XXI century and posses the common stylistic constant. Among them can be mentioned «Con amore», «Reincarnation», «Sirius», «Amulet», «Microcosmos», «Status quo». A specific author’s approach to the process titling of the chamber-instrumental opuses proves not only the domination of the idea of conceptualism, but intensification of the process of musical sense-making. The multimentional symbolics of «the name», which is assigned to the new opus, causes the process of splitting of the sense-bearing field of the composition and, respectively, a possibility of individualized interpretation of the author's conception. "The name» of a composition is a peculiar precompositional structure and becomes a starting point in the dialogue between a composer and their listener.
