THE PHENOMENON OF SYNTHESIS IN THE MODERN CHORAL ART: A GENRE, A TEXT AND A SCORE
The purpose of the research is to study the phenomenon of a synthesis as a distinguished feature in a modern choral art as well as identification of its features in the context of a genre at the textological level. Methodology. Such methods as discursive textological, comparative-analytical and logically-constructive methods. The scientific novelty consists in giving reasons for viability in applying the concept of a synthesis in modern choral art with an eye to multi-levelness and hierarchy of the concept of a text in artistic system of the choral art. Conclusions The concept of a synthesis is interpreted as an artistic phenomenon, which can be characterized with systemacity, polysemy and logical openness. It becomes actual, in particularly, in choral art. It is found out that a modern musical piece shows its uniqueness in multileveled influence on the audience of the definite system of texts. The hierarchy in the concept of a text is defined which exists at the creative and artistic levels; it is formed from objectively-compositional constituents; it appears as the interactive unity of authorial, performer's and audience's thoughts; it exists as a source of information in a fixed/recorded, procedural and effective format. The typology of scores (music sheets) as a system of communicative relationship between the composer, performer and the audience is offered. It is marked that the phenomenon of a synthesis in modern choral art becomes a source for creation of such textual systems, where there is an interaction between traditions, forms and types of thinking; the new types of scores (work sheets) are supposed to be find out; new genre formats are defined; the necessity of new scientific grounded methodological approaches in a musical pedagogics, in particularly in the area of choral art is proved.
