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.
