Abstract


The sense of a musical work, actualized by film director, may either coincide with its established meaning (interpretation) or not necessarily (re-interpretation). The paper presents the experience of re-interpretation of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony sounding in the films directed by Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange) and Tarkovsky (Nostalghia). This refers to the total rethinking of the classical art sample carried out within a cultural context due to the "past life" of a musical work. Consideration of filmmusic performed in reliance on the rhetorical canon as the trinity of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos. In the terminology of Bakhtin, Logos and Ethos are identified at the level of cognitive and ethical aspects of content. As a result, their co-existence creates Pathos like a unit, which "produced and perceived via art". Giving aware of the fact that in "perception a musical work, the intense deepening of ethical moment is permissible" [Bakhtin], author connects filmmusic specific feature with the experience of re-expression of musical language into pictorial speech.
