Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the work is to analyze the intonation-lexical layer of a piece not in terms of its unique essence, but as a complex symbolic space, characterized by semantic layering. The research methodology consists in application of the intonation -semantic analysis, in the context of which connotative structures are discovered, that allows to understand its semantic layers. Scientific novelty lies in the identification of the underlying semantic structures of musical text, which enable to understand its value measurements, to analyze a dynamic process of its definition and to move from understanding of individual elements of the musical language to the semantic concepts of a musical text. Conclusions. Based on the analysis of the concert piece "Caprice" for solo violin by a contemporary Ukrainian composer Miroslav Skorik the research has found the openness of the structural elements of musical speech, which are able to accumulate new meanings and acquire the value of the elements of other art system.
