E.N. Shapinskaya Winter Journey by Schubert in the Context of Contemporary Culture: Eternal Themes and Limitless Interpretations.

Published in journal "PHILHARMONICA. International Music Journal", 2014-2 in rubric "Classical and modern harmony", pages 252-260.

Resume: The article analyses vocal cycle by Schubert Die Winterreise in the context of contemporary culture. The reasons of its popularity with modern performers and public have been regarded. The author examined both the context of creation of this work and its existence in modern cultural practices. The purpose of the work is to find out the cultural meanings of Winterreise which are important for our time. Having examined aesthetic and philosophical ideas of romanticism and existentialism as well as contemporary trends in analysis of art, the author follows the fate of Winterreise in the epoch of globalization, when people start feeling the loss of emotions, their substitution by consumerist desires and constant immersion in informational activity. A number of sources, both from the field of philosophy and art study, have
been analyzed as well as recordings and personal materials of the author based on different interpretations of the cycle.
The musical work has been examined from the point of view of its value for contemporary culture and the potential for interpretation which corresponds to the necessities of our days. As a result the author comes forward with the idea of the importance of emotional and semantic aspects of Winterreise for modern audience which has a need for aesthetic and human values lost in contemporary culture.
