Full Text


At the present stage, musical and performing activity requires rethinking key concepts and identifying its new content. The article contains an analysis of modern professional training of a musician-performer at a university. Special attention is paid to the significance of interpretation in modern musical and performing activities. Long-term practice of concert performance creates a significant number of performing interpretations. A musician-performer must not only get acquainted and try to interpret the composer's text, but also try to understand this value content. The article offers an understanding of interpretation as a reinterpretation of the content of a work based on the artist's personal creative beliefs, which implies a different experience. This topic is also supplemented by the consideration of the act of joint activity of the participants in the performance, during which a common view of the ideas and images of a musical work is developed, as a result of which the audience's consciousness is transformed. This requires communicative competence. Thus, a musician-performer combines both communicative and interpretative abilities. The article considers the structure of professional competence of a musician-performer, taking into account the specifics of professional activity and based on the competence approach. The existing approaches to defining the essence of the concept of competence are analyzed. The structure of professional competence integrates musical and performing, interpretive, communicative, pedagogical, organizational and managerial competencies. Communicative competence is considered as a professionally significant personal property of a future musician-performer in the course of professional training at a university.
