Abstract

This paper is based on the study of multidisciplinary correlation between literature and music, which is, in other words, the study of symbolism and musical aspects of wind in the short story “Zurlo`s most beautiful day”, written by Macedonian author Zhivko Chingo.  During the research, it has been concluded that the wind itself was given the status of a mythical creature, possessing an ambivalent, reintegrating and devastating power, thus acquiring the meaning of interlude that creates a cyclic chain of stories in Chingo`s abundant collection of works (Paskvelia, short stories, 1962, New Paskvelia, short stories, 1966,  The Ghost in Love, short stories, 1973, posthumously published collection Delirium, short stories, Grave for the soul, short stories, as well as Bride and The Ocean in the edition Collected Works, 1992). Due to the fact that cantata derives from a poetic text, the second part of this paper deals with analogies between the cantata itself in one hand, and the short story which is the subject of the study, in the other, with the aim to emphasize the possibilities of reshaping literary forms into musical and vice versa.
