ABSTRACT

Through her life dedicated to music, the composer Irina Odăgescu brought to Romanian culture a new breath of a genuine originality. Using a complex language, profoundly anchored in the modernity of the second part of the 20th century, her musical works are distinguished by an expression force that results from an inner experience that goes to the listener, managing to convince both specialists and music lovers. This particularity of her language is exceptionally highlighted in the choral work entitled Our Father, all the more so since the chosen text is an emblematic component of the Christian Orthodox spirituality. Composer managed to discover the subtle sounds able to emphasize the text expression energy through original musical elements. By analyzing in detail the musical language of this work, elements of Romanian ethos are revealed, elements that are subtly intertwined with those of Byzantine music, realizing a synthesis of a rare depth for secular music in a religious context.

Keywords: music, Christian spirituality, modernism, Romanian ethos, Byzantine music
