INTERPRETATION OF THE CONCEPTS OF “INTONATION” AND “PERFORMING INTONATION” IN RUSSIAN MUSICOLOGY

Posted in 2021, ARTS, Issue № 12 (114) December 2021 | 0 comments

The article outlines the main stages of the formation of intonation theory. This theory is recognized as one of the leading musical theoretical systems of the 20th and 21st centuries. A key contribution to the development of the doctrine of intonation was made by Russian musicologists (B. L. Yavorsky, B. V. Asafyev, V. V. Medushevsky et al.). The category of intonation explains many issues of musical art; it allows for combining society and culture, composing and performing creativity, and listeners into a single system. Today, the theory of intonation is enriched by connections with psychology, linguistics, and semiotics.

Many outstanding teachers pay attention to the issues of piano intonation. In particular, the ways of developing intonation on the piano are explored in the writings of H. G. Neuhaus. Nowadays, the sphere of piano intonation is allocated to a separate scientific field (V. V. Malinkovskaya). The work on intonation in the piano class covers almost all aspects of learning and has a significant developmental and educational value.

KONSTANTIN YUON’S “CREATION OF THE WORLD” IN THE CONTEXT OF THE INTERNATIONAL ARTISTIC PROCESS OF THE TURN OF THE CENTURY

Posted in 2021, ARTS, Issue № 12 (114) December 2021 | 0 comments

The article discusses the cycle of Konstantin Kuon’s The Creation of the World (1908-1909), in which the artist largely changes his style and turns to biblical subjects previously uncharacteristic of his oeuvre. Since Yuon was traditionally considered a master of realistic painting in Soviet art criticism, the main motive of whose creativity was the urban architectural landscape, these works were left almost unnoticed by the researchers of his work. The author sees value in analyzing the works from the “Creation of the World” from the standpoint of modern art studies, which will allow for determining not only the influence of the Russian school of painting but also various European trends in art popular in the late 19 – 20th centuries. In the works under study, the artist appears not only as a follower of the national painting tradition but rather as a cosmopolitan and a participant in the international artistic process. Rethinking the meaning of Yuon’s creativity of the 1900s opens up new perspectives both for further research of his work and for a new interpretation of little-known works by other artists of this era.

Posted in 2021, ARTS, Issue №4 (106) April 2021 | 0 comments

The Dagestan art of rug making has been studied by many researchers; however, its export component remains poorly understood. For a long time carpets have been one of the most popular traditional products of the Caucasus abroad. Large-scale export of Dagestan carpets to Turkey, and from there to European countries, began in the late 19th century. In times of the Soviet Union, the state tried to resume the export of Dagestan carpets. The organization of carpet artels and the creation of export meetings contributed to the development of exports. The central authorities paid special attention to the Dagestan rug production in the post-war period. The carpets were sold abroad through the all-union foreign trade organization, Novoexport. Since the 1990s, the export of Dagestan rugs underwent rapid decline, which made discussing the prospects for its revival today quite difficult since there are acute problems with yarn dyeing, marketing, and even their design.
