The scientific novelty and originality of this research. The thesis represents a first approach in
the Moldovan composition of Nichita Stănescu's poetry, realized within the creative project that
completes the national repertoire of the Romanian musical-poetic space; for the first time in a
doctoral thesis were researched the musical compositional techniques with reference to the vocalsymphonic cycle Eu sunt Tu, combined with the theoretical course about the creative process, and
reflected in the musicological analysis of the score; a comprehensive historical-theoretical
approach was used in the thesis, making it possible to study one's own vocal-symphonic work in
the broad context of the interpretation of Romanian poetry in modern academic music.
Practical significance of the work consists in widening the sphere of contemporary
compositional visions on Nichita Stănescu's poetic legacy by creating the cycle Eu sunt Tu for
mezzo-soprano, baritone, declamator and symphony orchestra, which will complete the national
vocal-symphonic repertoire and is a unique contribution to Stanescu's poetry in Moldovan
academic music. The thesis can be recommended as a teaching material in the disciplinary studies

serve as a support for further research in the field.
