Francis Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites as the Concept of Intoning Message
Abstract.The subject of the research is the unfolding of 'internal action' that makes the concept of intoning message viewed as a synthetical coordinated phenomenon. This is a stage action, musical composition, multidimensional space of musical dramaturgy analyzed in terms of the artistic thinking of the second half of the 20th century in line with the Catholicism tendency in the French musical theatre. The purpose of the research is to perform a hermeneutical reconstruction of the process of developing the aforesaid concept by using the method of a detailed de visu analysis of a note text. In her research Azarova has applied conceptual critical research methods to analyzing the ideas of Georges Bernanos and composition ideas of Francis Poulenc. The author of the article has also used the methods of historical and theoretical analysis of musical compositions, in particular, the theory of musical intonation. For the first time in the Russian academic literature the author analyzes connections between Poulenc's opera music and Catholic tradition, defines genre codes of intonational-thematic opera elements and describes the function of declamatory voice intonations comprising the dynamic basis of the composer's creative process. The author also discovers parameters of Poulenc's compositions that have common elements with the composition principles used by Claudio Monteverdi, Giuseppe Verdi, Modest Mussogorsky and Claude Debussy, i.e. musicians the opera is devoted to. The author of the article also touches upon the problem of structuring the musical time in the opera, defines vectors for the development of the musical message that influence the formation of the dramaturgical concept of the intoning message, essential elements of the intonational fable and bearers of the musical message. Azarova analyzes new ways of interaction between regular and irregular rhythmic elements, variable pervasive intonational thematic units participating in the logical organisation of the whole. The author also gives a new interpretation of the basic intonational dramaturgical spheres: liturgic, metaphysical anxiety and death fear, social transformations, gifts of the Holy Spirit.
