Instrumental Theatre. The second Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra “Don Quixote" by Jan Sandström
Abstract.Instrumental theatre is one of the main genres of musical art of the second half of the twentieth century. It allows to accumulate features of different types of art in one piece of art – music, theatre, literature, painting, and so on. Due to the synthesis of arts, it is very popular with the public. This article discusses one of the striking examples of the genre — The Second Concerto for Trombone with Orchestra ("don Quixote") by the modern Swedish avant-garde composer Jan Sandström. The author tries to make a complex analysis of the work, the main aspect of which is the interaction of arts, their synthesis and indivisibility. This synthesis is manifested in the change of the status of performers who play musical instruments — now they perform the function of actors, which is illustrated by their movements on the stage, costumes, props, demonstration of voice abilities. Jan Sandström created a unique example of instrumental theatre based on the plot and text of the legendary work by Cervantes.
