Ukrainian vocal paradigm of Boleslav Yavorsky

Keywords: Yavorsky's Ukrainian vocal paradigm, musical education, music-historical process, paradigmatic approach, synergy.

Abstract

The paradigmatic approach in the study of vocal phenomena art offers new approaches and produces non-traditional standards of scientific thinking, making significant corrections to the general scientific picture of the world. This is precisely what is connected with the growth of scientific interest in the multidimensional personality phenomenon of music theorist, composer, pianist-concertmaster Boleslav Yavorsky (1877–1942) and his influence on the formation of the vocal paradigm of music education in Ukraine. Historical musicology, exploring different areas of artistic life, has lost track of an important topic such as the concertmaster activity of pianistscomposers who traditionally accompanied the performance of not only their but also other’s compositions, resulting in the unique creative act when one author was becoming the interpreter of other master’s compositions – his predecessor or contemporary. In the cognition of music history, such artistic events are of notable significance, as they reflect not just the performing evolution but also the process of creative reframing of the musical material. The main benefits of Yavorsky’s theory consist in analyzing the structure of mode formation and the internal modal organization of musical composition and musical-historical processes as well as drawing analogies in the development of various kinds of arts.
