Architextuality as a Factor in the Construction of the Musical Fairy Tale Genre in the Composition "Extraordinary Scenes from Homer's Grave in Smyrna - New Additions for Hans Christian Andersen" by Ivana Stefanović
The concert Extraordinary scenes from Homer’s Grave – New Additions to Hans Christian Andersen by Ivana Stefanović possesses qualities which, in terms of intertextual relations, could be reduced to the level of architextuality. This paper will examine the generality of patterns that are, in some way, comparable to the general situations mentioned in the fairy tale. However, the goal of the paper should not suggest the possible comparison of architextual relations between literary and musical work, since differences are quite obvious at even the most fundamental level. Reducing musical characters to fundamental musical patterns would imply that in genre terms it is possible to define this composition as a kind of musical fairy tale.
