Our research deals with some key questions concerning musical orientalism in general and “spanish style” in particular. The general purpose of this project is to investigate how “spanish style” – one of Orientalist musical styles – has been constructed in Russian classical music. The methods utilized are those of musicology and semiotics: we work with musical texts of composi-tions and define markers of “spanishness” in means of expression. The results anticipated could advance our understanding of the nature of constructing the image of Spain as the oriental coun-try in Russian music. Further research in this area of studies leads to new thinking about reflec-tions of orientalism in music – either Russian or Western.
