The aim of the study is the intention to carry out a theoretical analysis of the problems of interaction between the theory of intertextuality and the theory of the re-intonation of folklore in composer creativity. The methodology of the research is based on interdisciplinary integration of the methods of modern philosophy, cultural studies and art history. The scientific novelty of the study is determined by the fact that the process of re-intoning folklore origins in composer creativity is considered and methodologically interpreted in the forefront of the “one's own-another's” dichtomy, that is, as an intertext. Conclusions. Justifying the methodological expediency of the intertextual approach, we note that in the "composer-folklore" system, the intertext and its elements exhibit common properties of heterolexicity, compositional and style variability. Thus, the textual diversity of the folklore genre intertext is represented by material from the citation to the original author-style themes or small components of folklore in author themes, and the variety of the author's style context extends from classics to the avant-garde and mixed techniques of the 21st century. In the intertextual system "composer-folklore" a typification is built, which is still expressed in invariant attributes, genetically inherent in the folklore genre. During construction as a result of compositional work, the system acquires features of genre-style and semantic duality. The structural and semantic attributes of the folklore genre in this context is expressed in general, not in the folklore-traditional, but in the stylized form and implies the presence of the author's component.
