Fantasias for violin solo of the 1980–1990s in context of the genre history
The works for solo violin by Yu. Kaypanen, I. Frolov, G. Zaborov, A. Schnittke are represented in the published article as examples of poly-genre fantasia in the XXth century and innovatory milestones in history of violin art. In the researcher’s opinion the named interpretations of the genre correspond with the philosophical concepts of baroque and classicist fantasias, revealing the global problems of Life and Death, Existence and Different Existence, Cosmos and Chaos. The modern authors synthesize the composing principles of sonata and symphony monocycle, variations, rondo, elements of improvisation. The development of music thematicism is correlated with the baroque «germination» of initial tune complex, and interval combinatory, folk song variation. Moreover the concrete artistic idea includes some program plot which directs the music-dramaturgical expansion. So «Aurora’s Ring» by Kayponen engraves a pantheistic picture of morning nature awakening, and «Improvisation» by Zaborov is associated with the process of a virtual universe formation, and «Dedication to Paganini» by Schnittke with generalized portrait of «a violinist at all times» in context of the XIX–XXth centuries violin music evolution. The researcher interprets fantasia «In memory of David Oistrach» by Frolov in the channel of «a memorial dialog» between the great creators which transform our world with their art.
