The dissertation reveals the systemic chronotopic principles of Chopin's piano work as the basis of his musical idiostyle (individual-authorial language style), creates an updated approach to all aspects of the interpretation of Chopin's piano poetics. The category of musical chronotope and the notions of image-concept, semantic modality are developed, musicological ideas about idiostyle as an expression of individual-author's language are deepened; the theoretical principles of studying the phenomenon of stylistic thinking in music are revealed. The disclosure of the significance of idiostyle as a special authorial-cognitive phenomenon becomes fundamental in the coverage of F. Chopin's creative personality; the leading features of the author's image in F. Chopin's piano work are revealed. The approach to style in music as to the space-time phenomenon having special musical and text indicators is offered; the contextual and intextual conditions of the formation of F. Chopin's stylistic thinking are covered, with their division into genre factors and stylistic qualities proper. Elucidation of the role of the melodic beginning in Chopin's stylistic creation allows to reveal more deeply the content of the main images-concepts, idiostyle chronotopes of F. Chopin's piano music. The principle of performing programm in relation to the conceptual tendencies of Chopin's music is determined; typological characteristics of the leading linguistic and stylistic (semantic) performance modalities in the music of F. Chopin are given. In general, Chopin's piano work is represented by systematic research as a historical genre-compositional and personal linguistic-stylistic phenomenon.
