Field of study: musical art, history and theory of choral performance. The aim of the research is to develop new models for interpreting local choral miniatures in artistic practice, based on musical-stylistic and interpretive analysis of such repertoire signed by composers from the Republic of Moldova. The objectives of the research refer to the presentation of the complex analysis of some choral miniatures signed by local composers, from the repertoire of Academic choir chapel Doina; specifying the various aspects of the musical-compositional language and connecting them with the choral interpretive practice; identifying the interpretative difficulties in the analyzed works and submitting some methods to overcome them.

The novelty and scientific-practical originality of the approach is determined by the corroboration of the theoretical research and the process of practical-interpretative valorification of the choral miniatures signed by composers from the Republic of Moldova, made with the contribution of the Academic Choral Chapel Doina. For the first time in the thesis were identified and cataloged the artistic problems and interpretive difficulties faced by the conductor in working on the national repertoire of choral miniature; solutions for overcoming them were elaborated and approved, in artistic practice. For the first time, based on a complex theoretical research, new interpretive models were implemented in artistic practice, aiming at the genre of local choral miniature, realized within the three recitals held on the stage of the National Philharmonic S. Lunchevici.

The applicative value of the work. The results of the thesis can be used in the artistic practice of interpretation and study of miniature choral pieces, by professional, student or amateur choirs; in the theoretical study of choral music; in the university courses of Academic choir conducting, Choral vocal interpretation, Methodology of working with the choir, Interpretive practice, Conducting practice, History of national music and other courses with reference to local choral music.

The research will be a theoretical and practical support in the activity of choir conductors, teachers and students from music education institutions, choral groups from the republic; as well as a starting point for further research in the field.

Implementation of scientific results. The research results were approved in 6 scientific conferences, being reflected in 6 published articles; in concert artistic practice, in the conducting activity practiced in the Academic choral chapel Doina from the National Philharmonic Serghei Lunchevici.
