Psychological portrait of a modern composer
In all ages, music has inspired people and revealed amazing feelings of love, hatred, despair, joy. The melody is able to convey the most exalted feelings, show human errors, learn about secret desires. Thanks to modern musical psychology, experts argue that they can easily talk about the temperament of the listener and even identify his psychological problems. The creators of musical elixirs are known to us as composers. Most grateful listeners are surprised by the unusually vivid transfer of human emotions in a standard set of notes. Truly unique owners of natural hearing can really create such a musical cocktail. In the distant past, composers were described as divine geniuses, and some claimed that for their gift they sell the soul to the devil himself. Only the modern world opens the veil of true composer’s art, which consists in painstaking daily work on his creations.
CHARACTER OF CREATIVE PERSONALITY
Young people dreaming of a musical career think about the question: “Can I create real masterpieces that future generations will admire?”. The answer to this welcome question has long been open: “There is nothing impossible.” Any person can even touch the moon – just reach out to the reflection in the water. A person in such a profession as a music composer should have perseverance, patience, willpower and amazing love of life. The composer is always intellectual. He is also a person of great responsibility, as the listener perceives the musical tale of life in the evaluation and in the editorial office of the author.
The most important communicative quality for the composer is the ability to perceive constructive criticism. How do you feel about caustic remarks addressed to you? Some are angry, others “give up”, but criticism is an outward reflection of your hidden fears. If you are afraid of something and carefully hide it, there will certainly be a person who will “hit” the patient himself. This composer is open to new achievements, he listens to useful tips and is able to weed out the seeds from the chaff, while not abandoning the search for his own path in creativity. Valentin Vasilievich Silvestrov, once an unknown student at the Institute of Building Engineering, went against the wishes of his parents and today is a famous Soviet and Ukrainian composer. It was his will, perseverance and faith in his own strength that helped him achieve unprecedented heights.
BINARITY OF THINKING OF A MODERN COMPOSER
Back in the last century, the famous Czech composer Otakar Zih put forward a hypothesis that the composer, like any ordinary person, has a duality of perception. In the first case, visual images are involved in the work, on which the future melody is superimposed. In another case, only by listening to the musical works of other authors, the composer “gives birth” to his unique masterpieces. Subsequently, the idea of right and left-hemispheric types of thinking came up. The psychological portrait of the composer is an image of a purposeful, sociable and strong-willed person who should be open to his viewers. To inspire people with his works, the composer is himself a little psychologist and sensitively captures the emotions of his loyal listeners. In the modern world, famous composers often become performers of their own creations.
E.V. Vaenga, M.I. Dunaevsky, G.V. Dorokhov and many other famous composers of Russia are ordinary people who have become popular only due to the systematic pursuit of their cherished goal.

The topic of the article is very interesting, but there is very little factual material and names. Therefore, of course, there are not enough conclusions (only about binary). And putting M. Dunaevsky and E. Vaenga alongside and calling her the famous composer of Russia is somehow incorrect. Vaenga is very talented (especially against the background of the pop art of the Russian Federation) but so far she has actually “fallen asleep”, and what next – ??? Sincerely, Alexander B.
