Particularitatea estetică a relaţiei dintre text şi melodie în opera lui Sigismund Toduţă

The overall context of the research focuses on the role and historical-structural mutations of the libretto as a generating element linking texts of poetical-literary sources and the mature form of vocal-instrumental works. The role of the libretto is defined as the mediator between drama-music expressed through the relationship between text and song. At the core of analytical endeavors lies the esthetical-rhetorical examining of the genesis, of the deployment and of the effect of the text-song relationship in underlining the message in S. Toduţă’s creations. 

As an example we have chosen S. Toduta’s opera-oratorio: Meşterul Manole. The maestro’s method for conceiving his own libretto through ideogramming L. Blaga’s dramatic text is obvious in the underlining of similarities and differences between drama and music as they are reflected in the confession monologue of Manole (Act II). The author presents both the stages of ideogramming the original text through a thoughtful selection of moments favouring music and through their musical enrichment that “opens” the symbols and allegories of the original ballad meanings and turns them into plastic and insightful metaphors.

The paper also provides examples as it cites and explains fragments both from L. Blaga’s dramatic text and from the music of S. Toduţă.
