Dissertation structure: Creative part: three concert programs (DVD records). Scientific research: introduction, three chapters, main conclusions and recommendations, bibliography of 127 titles, 5 appendices; 92 pages of main text, 46 pages of appendices.

Research area: Austro-German vocal music.

The purpose and objectives of the work. The purpose of the study is to characterize the treatment of the piano part in F. Schubert's vocal cycles Die schöne Müllerin and the Winterreise from the point of view of her role in the performance embodiment of an artistic idea. Objectives of the work: to determine the place of F. Schubert's vocal cycles in the historical panorama of early Austro-German vocal music; to consider the main features of their content, form and musical language; to characterize the meaning of instrumental accompaniment in these works; to reveal the textural features of the piano part; to identify the problems of interpretation of these works; to recommend specific ways of solving artistic and technical problems in the interpretation of these vocal cycles by F. Schubert.

The scientific novelty and originality of the project is determined by the synthesis of the theoretical study of the vocal cycles of F. Schubert and their practical implementation. The practical aspect of the dissertation is revealed in the framework of stage performances, which are distinguished by the novelty of concert programs and the performing interpretation of musical material. In the theoretical part, for the first time in the Republic of Moldova, a large-scale study has been carried out, in which the features of the piano part in F. Schubert's chamber-vocal cycles are studied and a variant of their performing interpretation is proposed. Originality is determined by the research perspective, which involves the synthesis of musicology and performing practice.

The practical significance of the thesis is related to the fact that it complements and deepens a number of theoretical and methodological developments in the field of the history of performing arts from the point of view of a practicing musician. The work can be applied in the training courses The art of accompaniment, Solo singing, Chamber singing, History of foreign music, Pedagogical practice, Performing practice. The results of the study can be used in the preparation of concert performances and in independent studies of students, as well as in the daily activities of pedagogues teaching accompanist skills and chamber music.

Implementation of scientific results. Practical testing was carried out within the framework of three concert performances in the Great Hall of the Academy of Music, Theatre and Fine Arts, in the Small Hall of the National Philharmonic S. Lunkevici and in the Organ Hall of Chisinau. The results of the work were tested at 12 national and international scientific conferences in Moldova, Ukraine, Romania, Russia as well as in 6 scientific publications.
