    18The identity of the musician

    About the personality of Antonio Domenico Geraldine we know very little — on this account we extremely unlucky. No letters written by him or addressed to him, nor any reliable amplify them — nothing left, as if someone was purposely trying to destroy everything that could shed light on the spiritual aspect of man, whose work was part of the culmination of the development of the artistic culture of Italy the second quarter of the eighteenth century. The only document which is available to modern researchers, this is a diary of the composer. The whole structure of this document — and the style, and content — filled with pain and doubt. Expressed the thoughts — large, bold, carried — can only belong to the famous musician. But about the personality of the composer speak very scarce materials. All that is definitely known about Geraldine, is reduced to a purely external aspect of his work. But even a bare enumeration of the facts of his life gaping voids. So still not aware of the details of the birth of composer — one legend intricate another. To find a parish record of the baptism in the Venetian archives to researchers and failed. Another serious gap in the biography — the absence of any comprehensive data relating to the work of Geraldine in the Opera genre, which in the latest, most Mature years was the sense of creative activity of the composer to a much greater degree than any other. It is illuminated only indirectly and sketchy, exclusively through scarce memoirs of contemporaries. Continue reading

    17Experience of comprehension of musical style dates back several centuries, however, the scope and content of this concept, functions, denoted phenomena remain poorly understood, and therefore — discussion. The paradox was­can state that there are a lot of publications, with those or other positions examines this phenomenon, and only a few works devoted to the actual theoretical and practical­ical aspects of its study [5; 13—16; 18; 19; 21].

    The notion of musical style allows many interpret the data a transponder­Tatsiy. In its definition, difficulties may arise due to a number of reasons. One of them — terminological confusion, since any manifestation of style may be interpreted in different ways. The contradictory judgments, ambiguity of terms and synonymist symbols are a hindrance to precise definitions, and indicate uncertainty or lack of clarity of the concept . Another reason lies in the disagreements concerning the periodization of musical-historical process and classification of artistic phenomena.

This proves the shortcomings of this theory, it is not surprising that the discovery of paradoxes stimulates scientific activity and leads to transformation. These are, for example, the paradoxes of systemic signs — failures related to the explanation of the proportion of the whole and its parts in biology that contribute to re-orienting the search for new approaches in the context of universal evolutionism.

    241. About the concept of style. S. S. Scraper defines style as the highest kind of artistic unity. This is not the last level of unity: the unity of art style, human, stretches, as the sky above, the unity of the Divine. It outshines stylistic differences, making them irrelevant. Seediness light of divine love becomes the most important thing, eliminating any thought about eclecticism. In the Church can easily be connected to the tunes of the entire two thousand year history of the Church and of all Christian Orthodox peoples, often side by side in the same service. Where God is there is melting style.

    The music of Christian civilization… the style Category is too small for her, and cannot embrace her uniqueness. “Style is the man” (Buffon). Musical style – the pronounced worldview. Christianity is more than a worldview: it has revealed an update of the world. “God became human so that man obrilsya” is not a worldview, and ontology.
