Summary/Abstract: Purpose of the research. This work studies the specifics of the interpretation of the piano expressiveness by E. Varese that occupied such an exceptional place in the classical music of the previous stage and extremely critically but still used in the work of the author of "Ionization". Scientific Novelty. The research reveals not only the restrictive attitude towards the expressive possibilities of the piano, but also essentially clavier attitude related to the neoclassical aspirations of the twentieth century orientation of E.Varese. Conclusions. There is also a clear tendency to consider the futuristic discoveries of sonoristics in autonomy from the ideological and political "shade", emphasized by Marinetti's group in due time. However, by the middle of the twentieth century it turned out to be a semantic anachronism, uninter-esting in use in artistic and musical content, autonomized into meaningful clavier-percussion effects of the emblematic works of the maestro.
