This paper focuses on one fragment from Kurtág's Scenes from a Novel, a vocal cycle for soprano and isntrumental ensemble set to poems by Rimma Dalos. The structuralist analytical method of Iurii Lotman, Russia's foremost semiotician, is used to examine Dalos's text. It considers the phonological, prosodi, graphic, lexical, and grammatical levls of poetic structure. The author examines both vertucal and horizontal dimensions of the musical structure, borrowing the “wedge” idea from Davis Lewin. The incorporate these approaches, this fragment is considered as an independent musical entity, an independent poetic entity, and finalyy as a synthetic musico-poetic symbiosis.
