Summary/Abstract: Considering the complex landscape of Romanian music during the second half of the 20th century, and the first half od the 21st centuri, and the richment of artistic solution offered by various forms of representative Romanian composers of this period of time, this paper proposes to highlight the artistic portrait of composer Felicia Doncenau, reflected in the vocal-chamber paper „Tears”, a complex portrait painted under the influence of collateral talents in the music field. Although it is a miniaturea paper in its essence, this lied called „Tears” is composed with unique lyrics, it is offering us a sound landscape born from moral criteria, by personal methods and means, crossed by syncretic thinking, assembled in an assumed stylistic freedom. The modal-diatonic sonority of the work and the popular lyrical verse are just a few Donceni’s style features found throughout the vocal-chamber creations.
