Literary Text in Instrumental Compositions of Modern Composers
Abstract: The article is devoted to one of the most interesting modern genres, instrumental composition with the word that is a type of instrumental theatre. This genre has never before been studied by music researchers, therefore the topic of the article is actual and has a scientific novelty. Based on Russian composers' music (S. Gubaydulina, V. Tarnopolsky, V. Martynov, and N. Korndorf), the author of the article analyses how the word (literary text) is included into the music score of a composition. The author also analyses particularities of the scenic realisation of opuses that combined music instrument playing and text reading. The author of the article uses the integral research approach to the genre that combines instrumental composition and words as a synthesis of music and word in general. The author defines the degree of interaction between literary text and music and offers his own classification of texts. He concludes that the genre of instrumental composition with the word will soon become of the main genres in music because it implies a clear declamation of a message or idea even through a purely instrumental opus.
Keywords: performance, instrumental theater, instrumental composition with the word, Russian composers, contemporary music, synthesis of arts, literature and music, S. Gubaidulina, V. Martynov, N. Korndorf
