Throughout the centuries these two kinds of art have been developing simultaneously and in close contact with each other, besides.

The paper analyzes a specific composition by Alfred Schnittke – Wassily Kandinsky – The Yellow Sound. Research aim: to investigate the features of musical implementation of W. Kandinsky’s ideas by Alfred Schnittke on the basis of a comparative analysis of specific compositions of both authors. Research method: a comparative analysis
