Music is the resonator of a poetic word. It allows you to expand and deepen the perception of the poetic text, influencing the imagination of the listener through a variety of sounds, tones and harmonic colors. The purpose of this study is to reveal the figurative sphere of the literary and poetic text of poems by M. Tsvetaeva and its embodiment through the prism of individual compositional solutions in the cantata of the contemporary composer Vitaly Kharisov.
The research methodology is based on a set of art criticism methods: structural, semantic hermeneutic, musicological analysis of musical and poetic material.
In the cantata cycle, the composer combines seven poems of the poetess, each of which is associated with her tragic fate. The main fastening element is the general atmosphere of sadness, both in poetic and musical text, and the connection of each number with the emotional states of the poetess. Vitaliy Kharisov, who knows the vocal nature of the voice perfectly, turns the choir into an instrument with a special touch on the sound, by the way, necessary to convey all the shades of Tsvetaeva poetry. In interpretation decisions, the composer uses the capabilities of the choral texture, the flexible composition of the performers, various methods of sound production and pronouncing a poetic word. Composer reading of texts by Tsvetaeva reveals the emotional background of poetry and the deepest meanings of the first author.
