Review: In her article Alieva analyzes "Six sonatas for solo violin" composed by Eugene Ysaye. The author gives a comparison of the performance of these sonatas by the author and other performers in the context of the evolution of violin performance in the 20th century. The purpose of this work is to describe specific influence of the performing style of Eugene Ysaye on his work as a composer, and also to study how the "Six Sonatas for Solo Violin" influenced the development of professional violin performance in the 20th century. According to the results of the study, it should be noted that each sonata is an unusual work, which each violinist-performer presents in his or her own way. In this work, scientific methods of stylistic, comparative-historical, musical-theoretical and intertextual analysis were used, as well as interpretative and performing aspects of the study, which are relevant for "Six Sonatas for Violin Solo." For the analytical study of the musical material of this work, the historical and aesthetic views of Ezhene Ysaye himself were considered. In the course of writing the article Alieva has also used researches on violin performance and researches of teachers, performers, and Russian scientists such as L. Ginzburg, JI. Raaben, I. Yampolsky, V. Grigoriev, A. Alekseev, V. Yakubovskaya and others. The need to solve the problems posed at the beginning of the research was caused by the fact that there are no works in which the practical performance would be fully studied and which could satisfy the interest of those who are interested in the work of Eugene Ysaye. The scientific novelty of the work is caused by the fact that Eugene Ysaye's creative universalism is shown as that of an artist, composer and teacher. This has become the basic principle for studying and understanding the influence of Eugene Ysaye on the violin performance of the 20th century. In the work it was proved that the performing art of Eugene Ysaye directly influences his composer's creativity. The author also shows how "Six sonatas for violin solo" were performed in different performing styles of the 20th century.
