Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s “Pygmalion” as the First Example of the Musical Theater Melodrama

Darya V. Logunova

Abstract


The article is devoted to the problem of interaction of dramatic recitation and music in the melodrama “Pygmalion” by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Horace Coignet. For the first time this composition is examined from the position of the method of syntactic analysis, which makes it possible to reveal the specific features of the ‘grammar structure’ in the genre created by Rousseau and developed subsequently in the music of composers of various national traditions.

Keywords: Rousseau, musical theater melodrama, recitation, syntactic analysis, scene with a through development
